Boasting a long and varied history, the former Eastern Bloc city of Prague is a delightful maze of cobbled streets, baroque churches and Gothic architecture. With such a rich heritage, it's perhaps not surprising that Prague is home to many museums, galleries and theatres, making it the perfect destination for culture enthusiasts.
Many of the most popular attractions in Prague are within a relatively short distance of each other, making it an inspired choice for short breaks. The tourism highlights are delightfully captivating and include the Charles Bridge, a Unesco-listed historic centre, the River Vltava, Prague Castle, St Vitus Cathedral and the Prague Astronomical Clock - but it's the bars, restaurants and street life that hold many of the charms of this enchanting destination.
Lined with pastel-coloured mansions and charming pavement cafes where you can enjoy a cool beer, Old Town Square is often filled with tourists, although it never manages to lose its unique charm and appeal. Here you'll find the famous St Nicholas Church, which has been described as one of the finest examples of Baroque architecture in Europe. Leading from Old Town Square, the historic Charles Bridge was once the only way of crossing the mighty Vltava River to reach the imposing Prague Castle.
This mighty 9th-century building has a place in the Guinness Book of Records as the largest ancient castle in the world. Looming high over the city, Prague Castle is a stunning sight that shouldn't be missed. As well as this magnificent structure, Prague boasts many other wonderful places of historic value such as St Vitus Cathedral and Wenceslas Square. With so much history crammed into this beautiful city, it's no wonder it's now a Unesco World Heritage Site.
A number of festivals are held throughout the year in this most cultural of cities. During these times, hotels in Prague obviously get very busy, so it's best to book well in advance if your stay coincides with one of these celebrations. April 30 is the time for the traditional Witches' Night festival, while the month of May sees the Prague Spring Festival take place.
The renowned Prague Proms are usually held throughout July and August. December is the time to come to experience the winter delights of the Prague Christmas Market. Why not visit Brno, which is just two hours south of Prague, for cheaper food and drink?
