Enjoy one of Europe's most picturesque cities as you venture through Prague's magical Old Town, take in the extensive views from the Charles Bridge, and sample the best Czech beers from across Bohemia. Also, be sure to check out the famous Christmas market if you're traveling in December.
The wonderful architecture of the town and natural beauty of Letna Park are sure to inspire you, the museums and galleries are a fantastic experience and the music scene is well worth checking out on your city break to Prague.
Prague is renowned for its delightful historic buildings. Take in the atmosphere at the old town square, and be sure to check out the beautiful 15th century Astronomical clock while you’re there. For something more impressive, head to Prague Castle near the Charles Bridge. It’s sheer size and repeated reconstructions mean that it uses nearly every architectural discipline in the world, making it a definite must see.
Prague’ fantastic range of museums and galleries make Czech culture easily accessible for travellers. The Czech National Gallery is home to a range of work by Czech artists including Mucha and Kupka, as well as an international collection including Monet and Picasso. The musically inclined will enjoy the Czech Museum of Music, with its huge collection of rare and strange instruments, as well as recordings so you can hear them being played.
Take the opportunity to sample some world famous Czech beer during your cheap city break to Prague. While Gambrinus is the most popular beer in the Czech Republic, try a glass of Pilsner Uquell or Kozel’s medium if you get the chance.
If you’re looking for somewhere to try Czech beer, you’ll be spoilt for choice. We like the Pivovarský Klub, as they specialise in offering a fine range of beer. Or if beer is not to your taste, you could try one of the Prague’s many up and coming cocktail bars. At the Letna Beer Garden, with the beautiful view of the city and the charming location in Letna Park, you’ll soon find out why it’s a favourite with both locals and visitors, in spite of the less impressive drinks selection.
Prague has an active classical music scene and the Municipal House, with its striking art nouveau architecture, is the place to go to experience it.
