The Czech Republic has become a much more liberal and gay-friendly destination in recent years and the Prague gay scene, mainly centred around the Vinohrady area (close to the city centre), is particularly vibrant and accessible. There are around 30 gay bars, discos and saunas in the city as a whole with new establishments opening all the time.
Homosexuality in the Czech Republic is legal and the minimum age of consent is 15. There are no laws concerning tourists with HIV/AIDS. The number of HIV/AIDS sufferers in the country is low. In keeping with the mood of increasing tolerance the Czech parliament approved a law allowing gay partnerships in 2006.
This guide to the gay scene features most of the gay discos and bars in Prague. We have also included a number of strip joints which are clearly described. You should be clear that in these places the young Czech boys you meet will be interested only in your wallet and not in your personality. But in many of the other bars and clubs it is possible to meet and get to know normal Czechs. Prostitution and the promotion of it is legal in the Czech Republic provided the prostitute is at least 18 years old.
The Lesbian scene is limited to just a few bars, none of which are exclusively Lesbian but most of the regular bars listed here are welcoming to girls.
