Summer means sandy beaches and sun chairs, right? Not according to Airbnb. The vacation rentals marketplace has just put out its summer travel trends report for 2017 which includes a top 10 of the most wishlisted destinations—many of which are cities.
And the Czech capital ranks high among those sought-after urban destinations, edging out Amsterdam to come in at number 9 on the list.
According to Airbnb, the launch of its Experiences app earlier this year—a pilot program that includes Prague, the fourth most desirable Airbnb city on the European market—has given the company added insight into not only where people are staying but what they are doing.
This summer season is poised to be among the company’s busiest yet by a wide margin, with bookings for many of these destinations reportedly doubling since 2016 (the top 10 here reflects the most-booked destinations for Memorial Day weekend, which tends to set the pace for the summer months).

There are over Airbnb 8,000 rental units currently available in the Czech Republic.
Among them are a floating house in Prague, a converted bakery in Český Krumlov, a luxury yurt in Karlovy Vary, and a charming traditional chata in Liberec.
