The hotel is located right in the center of Prague, in the unique atmosphere of the Žižkov district. It can be especially inspiring if you try to find memories of the other face of the city of Prague in the small streets of the Žižkov district, the world of little people from Žižkov.
If you want to get to know Prague in all its beauty and history, you should not forget to explore the lives of its citizens. An ideal starting point for this is Žižkov, where the Hotel White Lion is located. Žižkov was built as a district for workers; there were houses for poor but working citizens. Thus a unique district of Prague with many small courtyards, galleries, and narrow streets originated. These came to life every day with the lives of their inhabitants and they had their own rules. People used their small and often dark apartments mostly in the winter. As soon as it was a bit warmer, they would take their tables and chairs out, they put their beer glasses on windowsills, played cards, smoked, drank, and gossiped. What reminds these old times now are many little pubs and cafes with their summer gardens, little narrow streets of the old worker’s neighborhood that has become so close to the heart of Prague now. It is hard to believe that Žižkov used to be on a periphery. Its working power was so essential that one of the first tram lines actually led to Žižkov.
If Žižkov streets seem too narrow to you, walk the paths of the Parukářka park. It begins right behind Prokopova street in the east from the hotel. The Parukářka park used to be a vineyard and farm and it is connected to the Hill of the Holy Cross above Žižkov. It is now a popular location for walking and relaxing for both locals, and tourists mostly thanks to its sunny paths in the former vineyard. In the 1950s and 1960s, the park was used for military purposes. There was a fallout shelter built right under the top of the hill with its own source of electricity and water. It was meant to hold about 2,500 people. Part of the shelter is ready to be used even now but part of the premises is rented and serves as a music club and a climbing wall.
