Why Gays like Prague

The Czech Republic is one of the most liberal countries in Central Europe regards to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender (LGBT) rights. In recent years the country has been openly welcoming gays, lesbians or homosexuals to a tourist scene that centers around their needs and expectations. Although local Czech people are not used to visible public display of affection between gays, the law in the country allows same-sex marriage and registered partnership from the minimum age of 15. Homosexuality though legal is still kept under wraps, centering mostly around the Vinohrady area (close to the city centre) and neighboring Zizkov where most of the gay bars, libraries, discos and saunas are located. The status of LGBT people in the Czech Republic is prominently marked by their annual festival : Prague Pride which is the first queer pride parade in the country's history.
