Czech out Prague for your next city break

Enjoy one of Europe’s most picturesque cities as you venture through Prague’s magical Old Town, take in the extensive views from the Charles Bridge, and sample the best Czech beers from across Bohemia.

The wonderful architecture of the town and natural beauty of Letna Park are sure to inspire you, the museums and galleries are a fantastic experience and the music scene is well worth checking out on your city break to Prague.

Also, be sure to check out the famous Christmas market if you’re traveling in December.

Stunning architecture
Prague is renowned for its delightful historic buildings. Take in the atmosphere at the old town square, and be sure to check out the beautiful 15th century Astronomical clock while you’re there. For something more impressive, head to Prague Castle near the Charles Bridge.

Its sheer size and repeated reconstructions mean that it uses nearly every architectural discipline in the world, making it a definite must-see.

Rich culture
Prague’s fantastic range of museums and galleries make Czech culture easily accessible for travellers.

The Czech National Gallery is home to a range of work by Czech artists including Mucha and Kupka, as well as an international collection including Monet and Picasso.

The musically inclined will enjoy the Czech Museum of Music, with its huge collection of rare and strange instruments, as well as recordings so you can hear them being played.

World famous beer
Take the opportunity to sample some world famous Czech beer during your cheap city break to Prague. While Gambrinus is the most popular beer in the Czech Republic, try a glass of Pilsner Uquell or Kozel’s medium if you get the chance.

If you’re looking for somewhere to try Czech beer, you’ll be spoilt for choice. The famous Pivovarský Klub specialises in offering a huge range of beer.

Or if beer is not to your taste, you could try one of Prague’s many up and coming cocktail bars.

At the Letna Beer Garden, with the beautiful view of the city and the charming location in Letna Park, you’ll soon find out why it’s a favourite with both locals and visitors, in spite of the less impressive drinks selection.

Musicians’ Haven
Prague has an active classical music scene and the Municipal House, with its striking art nouveau architecture, is the place to go to experience it. Go along to a Smetana concert during your weekend break to Prague for a night of music you won’t soon forget. If classical isn’t for you, there’s also a thriving rock and indie scene in Prague. Palace Akropolis is the home of touring international bands in Prague, and the Rock Café is frequented for the affordable drinks and the local bands.
