The Malls of Prague

Residential areas near shopping centers and malls are amongst the most sought after areas for real estate investment in Prague. One reason for this is that shopping and hanging out in the mall is a popular activity for Prague residents of all ages. Other reasons for the popularity of shopping centers among Czechs is the fact that they are open late into the night, the wide variety of products available in them, and their accessibility to public transportation (Many of Prague’s best shopping malls are built directly over metro stations). Accordingly, many Prague residents prefer to do their shopping in a single location rather than split up their shopping activities amongst many small stores. In fact, according to several economic parameters, Prague shopping malls have incredible power, with a greater number of shopping malls per both square meter and residents than any other capital in Europe. Even London trails behind Prague in these parameters, in spite of the greater purchasing power of its residents. Accordingly, if your residential unit is adjacent to one of Prague’s attractive shopping malls this has a positive effect on the value of your investment.
