Communist-era Hotel Praha to make way for flats

Hotel Praha in Prague 6 is due to be knocked down to make way for luxury apartments, the news website reported. The company that has bought the five-star facility, Maraflex, said the hotel had been constructed in such a grand style under the Communist regime that it was not economically viable to run it today. Its employees have already been let go. The hotel is where the Czech national soccer team usually stay when they are in Prague.
