Prague City Breaks
A guide to Prague
Prague quite rightly ranks among the most popular city break destinations in Europe. It remains one of the most beautiful of European cities, a veritable living museum of picturesque medieval cobblestone streets, Gothic church spires, beautiful bridges and gorgeous squares. The undiminished popularity of Prague is down to the sheer beauty and range of its architecture heritage, and the entire old town exudes a wonderfully romantic atmosphere, including a thrilling mixture of old and new.
Romantic fairy tale quality
Even the shortest of visits here is long enough to absorb the fairy-tale quality of the city. Prague has a manageable, compact centre ideal for relaxed strolling among the major sights: the wonderful castle area with its fine city views, the cathedral, the cobbled labyrinth of the Old Town, fabulous Staromestské Námestí square, breathtaking Charles Bridge, the riverside and the old Jewish neighbourhood. As well as history, Prague city breaks offer superb modern art galleries and museums, fashionable shops, beautiful traditional cafes, fine romantic dining, world-class concerts, opera and ballet, a trendy vibrant nightlife scene, and last but not least, world-famous beer.
A vibrant cosmopolitan atmosphere
Trips here in summer will witness a vibrant cosmopolitan atmosphere with young Czechs mixing with the city’s visitors, and in winter, Prague is wonderfully atmospheric, with street vendors selling hot mulled wine in absurdly picturesque, snow-covered squares. Spring and autumn in Prague will enjoy much of the best weather and fewer crowds, but whenever you decide to go, the city will amply live up to their reputation, offering something for all ages and all tastes.
