Old Town

Explore the Old Town Square

Get a 3-in-1 of Romanesque, Baroque and Gothic architecture, all in one place. The Old Town Square is surrounded by historic buildings dating back almost 900 years. Tick off a few of the 100 spires by seeing the St Nicholas and Týn churches. Right in the middle of the square is the impressive statue of Jan Hus, the influential medieval priest. Get the best view from one of the pavement cafés.

Wenceslas Square

Stroll down Wenceslas Square

The Wenceslas Square is actually a long, elegant boulevard that’s been at the centre of Czech history for centuries – it was where thousands of protesters gathered during the Velvet Revolution in 1989. The National Museum, home to prehistoric relics, is at one end and the State Opera is off to the side. Get a classic holiday snap in front of the St Wenceslas statue, patron saint of the Czech Republic.

Prague Castle

Sail past Prague Castle

Take in the Prague skyline from the Vltava river. Sail under the 15th-century Charles Bridge and approach Prague Castle as merchants would have done in medieval times. On one side, you’ll see the spires towering over Old Town, while on the other side is the Lesser Town, a medieval district that’s got a lot more to offer than the name suggests. Cruises can be taken day or night and can be enjoyed with lunch or dinner included.

Jewish Quarter

Discover the Jewish quarter

Get a sense of Jewish life in Prague from the 13th-century to the modern day. Tour the synagogues of this former ghetto, including the oldest one in Europe and the 19th-century Spanish Synagogue, with incredible Moorish architecture. Literature fans will want to see Kafka’s house, a charmingly squat building with a bright blue front.

Music

Alternative music and art

See an indie band, watch the latest works from young Czech playwrights or enjoy international and local art across 3 galleries. It’s all here at the Meet Factory, an international arts centre housed inside an old glass factory. The mix of contemporary art and industrial setting makes this about the hottest spot in Prague, and a big favourite of local culture vultures.

Prague

Festive Prague

At Prague’s Old Town Square a gold-glittered Christmas tree casts warm light over pretty ornaments and delicate lace. Wenceslas Square is also a Christmas market shopping haven, thanks to its handcrafted toys and soft woollen clothes. Enjoy a steaming mug of brandy infused coffee while watching nativity performances. Many of our hotels are perfectly located within a short stroll of both squares

Food and drink

Prague

Czech beer is rightly world-famous for its smooth, velvety taste. You’ll have ample opportunity to sample the native Pilsner and Budvar at the New Town, centred upon Wenceslas Square with its lively, modern bars.

The local cuisine is just as hearty, especially the ubiquitous roast pork and sauerkraut, served with lashings of thick, creamy gravy. You could also visit the Lesser Quarter for its huge array of fine dining restaurants, coffee houses and traditional pubs.

Getting around

Prague

Prague has an extensive metro system with three separate lines covering the city centre, as well as roadside trams that take you on a whistle-stop journey past all the best sights. Plus, you’ll be pleased to find that many central streets and squares are pedestrianised – perfect for pleasant city walks.

Insider Tips

Insider Tips

★ On the outskirts of Prague you’ll find a piece of Vietnam. The Sapa market is so authentic it looks like it’s been pulled straight out of south-east Asia. Try out the pho bo; a beef and noodle soup that sells out fast.

★ Prague is renowned for its grand cafés. The city’s most atmospheric coffee houses are actually on the first floor of Old Town buildings, yet are missed by many tourists staring deeply into guidebooks.

★ From Wenceslas Square to the Old Town, Prague is famous for its thriving nightlife. Yet you’re just as likely to have a great time in the Zizkov district – it’s the home of several huge nightclubs.

Charles Bridge

prague

Prague’s most stunning bridge spans over 16 arches and is lined with 30 statues. One of the best times to visit is at sunset when you can admire the beautifully lit Prague castle.



Jewish Quarter

prague

This small quarter has a torrid history but amazingly some of its best buildings survived. Explore six synagogues, the Jewish Town Hall and cemetery. To fully appreciate the history a guide is a must.


Wenceslas Square

prague

One of the main squares (although really a boulevard), enjoy bars, restaurants, shops and nightlife as well as some great architectural buildings such as the National Museum and State Opera House.



Prague Castle

prague

The official residence of the President and a must see on any visit. Wander around the castle grounds and gardens for free but it's well worth the fee to enter the castle itself.


Shopping

Prague

Both classic and contemporary shopping thrives in Prague, where the crystal ornaments of the Old Town sit close to the upmarket designer labels of Parizska Street. But if you don’t fancy splashing too much cash, Na Prikope Street features international brands at bargain prices.

The 11th century Havel’s Market is also a treasure trove of fresh food, flowers and souvenirs such as handmade puppets and ceramics.
