Prague

Prague city breaks

Bringing you all the atmosphere of Central Europe in one easily explored city, the Czech capital joins the dots between ancient castles, Gothic churches and Soviet structures. Add in Czech beer and Prague’s famously buzzing nightlife scene, and get ready to let the good times flow.

Sail down the river

Sail down the river

Take in the Prague skyline from the Vltava River. On one side, you’ll see the spires towering over the Old Town, and on the other you’ll find the Lesser Town, a medieval district that’s got a lot more to offer than its name suggests. Don’t miss out – there are cruises setting off day and night.

Discover the Jewish Quarter

Discover the Jewish Quarter

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

Alternative art scene

Alternative art scene

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

Eating and drinking
Czech beer is rightly world-famous for its smooth, velvety taste. The local cuisine is hearty, especially the renowned roast pork and sauerkraut, served with lashings of thick, creamy gravy. You could also visit the Lesser Quarter for its vast array of fine dining restaurants, coffee houses and traditional pubs.

Shopping
Both classic and contemporary shopping thrives, where Old Town ornaments sit close to the upmarket designer labels of Pařížská Street. But if you don’t fancy splashing too much cash, Na Příkopě Street features international brands at bargain prices. Havel’s Market is also a treasure trove of fresh food, flowers and souvenirs.

Getting around
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 those breezy city walks.
