In the heart of the Czech Republic is the city of Prague. Fairytale castles and cathedrals, medieval cobbled streets packed with architectural sights and ancient squares, great restaurants and a lively nightlife all mix together to make Prague a popular choice for a city break destination. With so much to do in Prague, you’ll have trouble fitting it all in during one trip - discover Prague’s historical past at Prague Castle; mingle with musicians and street artists on the Charles Bridge; explore the Old Town Square; climb to the top of the Gothic Old Town Hall for great city views or shop til you drop in Wenceslas Square. Reach the dizzy heights of Petrin Hill by funicular railway – worth it for the view of the city and its eight parks and own mini version of the Eiffel Tower, the Petrin Tower, to explore. When nighttime falls, the city really comes to life with its bustling bars and nightclubs rubbing shoulders with lively beer halls. With a flight time of just over 2 hours from the UK, it’s easy to see why Prague is the ideal choice for a city break with family or friends.
Youll be spoilt for choice with things to see and do in Prague. The citys historic tram network is a great way to get around and explore the sights. Enjoy a cruise on the Vlatava River. Explore further afield on a day trip to the spa town of Karlovy Vary with its hot springs and the setting for the Bond film Casino Royale. If shoppings your thing, Wenceslas Square is lined with fashionable and chic boutiques. The children will be happy with the many puppet shows on offer, not forgetting Prague Zoo, Seaworld, Jungleland and the many parks and playgrounds dotted around the city.
Prague comes into its own when nighttime falls with a wide range of bars, music bars and indoor and outdoor nightclubs to enjoy. Karlovy Lzne, a multistorey super club with seethrough dance floors, is a popular choice for a lively night out. Experience the raucous fun at one of the many beer halls. See an opera performance at the Statni Opera or visit a jazz club.
There are restaurants to suit every palate in Prague, serving everything from international cuisine to local Czech favourites. Local dishes are usually meatbased accompanied by dumplings, potatoes or sauerkraut with rich sauces. Sample the local Prague ham and traditional Czech game dishes too, all washed down with tasty Czech beer.
