Ever want to sleep inside of a Prague metro carriage? Maybe not, but here’s your chance: this one-of-a-kind apartment in Prague is fully designed after stations and carriages along the Czech capital’s famed metro system. Walk inside, and the Žižkov apartment is emblazoned with the name Řehořova in a stone marble tile, after the street on which it is located. Warning lines mark the edges of the hallway, and a classic sliding metro door opens into two seperate bedrooms. Chairs in the apartment seem like they were lifted right out of Prague’s C line metro carriages, and beds and sofas are designed to match. The apartment even includes handrails to hold onto in case things get bumpy. Named the METRO Apartment, the inventive flat is the creation of František Petrouš, who was looking for a unique concept to draw tourists to his Žižkov-based cellar flat. After an extensive reconstruction on the apartment, no expense was spared in recreating the look and feel of a Prague metro. Furniture in the apartment come directly from metro manufacturers Škoda and Siemens, and other materials have been borrowed from actual metro stations themselves. One element was left out, however: Petrouš decided to drop the familiar audio warning when doors open and close, fearing guests would quickly become annoyed. The METRO Apartment has two separately-bookable rooms, a single bed king studio that sleeps two and a larger king studio with a sofa bed that sleeps three. Interested? You can rent out the Prague METRO Apartment on Booking.com. The smaller room currently runs about 1000 crowns per night, while the larger goes for around 1400 crowns, depending on the dates chosen. But if you’re interested in this unique Prague apartment designed after the city’s famed metro, book well in advance: this one-of-a-kind accommodation has limited availability. Additional photos:
