Prague – Sex Market in the Heart of Europe

Hana Malinová

Deutsche Fassung


In the Czech Republic, the debate on prostitution focuses almost exclusively on border regions. But in the last few years, a booming sex market has also emerged in Prague amid the flood of tourists. In Prague clubs, the living and working conditions of the women, overwhelmingly Czechs, are better than in northern and eastern Bohemia. Various non-government organisations working with prostitutes by going out on the street have also contributed to creating a relatively better situation.
