Prague

Prague city breaks

Bringing you all the edgy atmosphere of Central Europe in one easy-to-explore city, the Czech capital joins the dots between ancient castles, Gothic churches and Soviet structures. This is an anything goes kinda place, where grand cubist cafés and a spire-topped skyline mix with offbeat dive bars and graffiti-strewn peace walls. Add in a love of stein-clinking beer halls and you’ll soon see why free-spirited Prague is famed for letting its hair down. But it still gets top marks for old-world charm. The lantern-lit Charles Bridge and Old Town’s Astronomical Clock are simply the stuff of storybooks. A fascinating Jewish Quarter and alternative art scene add another cultural layer of fascination to this must-see city, whatever time of year you visit.

There’s every type of nightlife here in Prague. Love live music? Follow the sound of jazz down into the underground cellar bars. Planning a hen or stag do? Night clubs with multiple floors await. Just want a decent pint? You’ll be in heaven, as this is the land of pilsner. Pubs are aplenty here, especially in the Nusle district, as well as breweries for tours and tastings.

Eating and drinking
Czech beer is rightly world-famous for its smooth, velvety taste. And when it comes to food, expect meaty menus. Pork knuckle, steak tartare and confit duck are local legends, often served with sauerkraut and creamy gravy. Prague’s a diverse city though, so you’ll find restaurants with menus from all corners of the globe.

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.
