The capital of the Czech Republic is the perfect place for a short break or longer holiday. This magical city is full of bohemian and Gothic architecture, as well as hidden surprises tucked away in its tiny, winding lanes and alleys. In addition, it offers great value for money, so it’s easy to have a fabulous trip even on the tightest budget. Hotels, meals, drinks and activities tend to be very affordable indeed, meaning you can truly make the most of your time in this memorable city.
Prague hotels range from ultra-modern, recently constructed properties on the outskirts of the city, to romantic hideaways tucked away in the cobbled streets of the Old Town. There are plenty of cheap hotels in Prague, as well as more luxurious 5-star hotels for Prague visitors with particularly refined tastes, as well as those who want to splash out in a destination that makes your money go further.
Spending time wandering the Old Town is one of the highlights of a trip to Prague. Stop by intimate, steam-filled cafes for a well-earned rest, in between gazing up at medieval buildings, baroque churches and elegantly crumbling castles. By contrast, the more modern sector of the city offers plenty of shops, restaurants, bars and clubs for those who like things a little livelier.
The Vltava river provides couples with ample opportunity to experience a loved-up stroll by the water, seeing the city lights as well as the impressive architecture reflected in the water. You can also take a boat trip on the river if you’d like to see more, or you can spend your time admiring the classic and modern art collections housed in the city’s range of galleries.
If you hanker after somewhere green and pleasant to while away the day, head to Kampa Island by Charles Bridge, where the pretty park, beautiful squares and colourful buildings are guaranteed to enchant. Close by is the Museum Kampa, which is based in the stunning Sovovy Mlýny building and displays a vast collection of contemporary artworks.
Czech beer is popular with locals and visitors alike, and if you’re looking for something to drink from when you get home, you could try shopping for some twinkly, chunky Czech cut crystal glasses as a memento.
