Abstract: This bachelor thesis examines what the host city has to do in order to prepare and stage the Olympic Games. The first part of the thesis is dealing with the analysis in general. The second part provides a quick overview of specific cases in two former host cities - their success and problems. These could serve as guidance when considering the Prague Olympic Games. The third part is an application of the problem of hosting the Games to Prague - the city which announced its interest in staging the Games. In both the first and the last part we try to analyze changes in infrastructure, financial sources, costs and revenues of the Games and the impact for the city. The conclusion of this thesis summarizes main outcomes and gives own recommendations. The thesis employs a combination of descriptive and analytic methods in an attempt to objectively assess the requirements of hosting Olympic Games in Prague.
