Typical Property Layouts in Prague

Share this post

In the Czech Republic, we do not differentiate the layout as one-bedroom apartment or two-bedroom apartment. Instead, the size of the property can be given in two ways:

  • The area of the floors in metres squared (m2)
  • Number of rooms

Before you can state the number of rooms, certain rules need to be applied. The kitchen, bathroom, toilet and hallway are not counted as living quarters. The bedroom, living room, study room and other habitable rooms are counted as living quarters and are therefore counted as rooms.

This can be difficult to understand at first if you are not familiar with the system, therefore we explain the different types of layouts below:

1. Studios

  • Garsoniéra = a small apartment usually consisting of one living room with a small kitchen and bathroom
  • 1 + kk = 1 room with a kitchen + hallway + bathroom

2. One-bedroom apartments

  • 1 + 1 = 1 room + kitchen as a separate room + hallway + bathroom
  • 2 + kk = 2 rooms where one of them has a kitchen + hallway + bathroom
  • 2 + 1 = 2 rooms + kitchen as a separate room + hallway + bathroom

3. Two-bedroom apartments

  • 3 + kk = 3 rooms where one of them has a kitchen + hallway + bathroom
  • 3 + 1 = 3 rooms + kitchen as a separate room + hallway + bathroom

4. Others

  • 4 + kk, 4+1, 5+kk, etc. follow the same system as the layouts above
  • Atypical arrangement = a layout that cannot be described by this system

It is also possible that during your property search in Prague, you will come across terms such as:

  • Mezonet = Duplex
  • Suterénní byt = Basement flat
  • Loft = Loft Apartment
  • Podkrovní byt = Attic Apartment

Words from our past clients

We have been cooperating with Philip & Frank brokers for a few years. Throughout that time it has been proved that it was a good choice. We are especially satisfied with their transparency and regular information about the progress of each project. At the same time we have always been in control of all decision-making. We will be happy to recommend them and their legal services to our friends and relatives. It was our pleasure warking with them.

While we were selling our flat, we approached the brokers of Philip & Frank who had been recommended to us. I was really satisfied and delighted. Their truly professional approach – meetings with us, organization of tours of the flat with clients and arranging the formal aspects of the sale, including cooperation with an excellent lawyer – was astonishing. I appreciate their competence and I recommend this real estate agency to other clients.

Thanks to the professionalism of Philip & Frank real estate brokers I learned that even purchasing a property can be a pleasant experience. Their thoroughness, reliability, helpfulness and kindness enabled us to concentrate only on the property. We were relieved of all the worries regarding the purchase and we could simply enjoy buying the flat. That is what you dream of but I would never have thought that it could come true. Thank you for your perfect services!
