Kick-start your Prague break at Original Coffee (Betlémská 12), one of the best places in the Old Town for coffee lovers to get that essential caffeine fix. It’s a ten-minute wander from here to the Old Town Square and on your way you’ll pass several fascinating little museums and galleries.
Take a look in U Zlatého Kohouta (Michalská 3), an exhibition space for young artists housed in two renovated Gothic houses. The Sex Machines Museum (Melantrichova 476/18), which shows some of the world’s earliest pornographic films and sex machines, is also en-route.
All Prague city breaks should take in a tour of the Old Town Square, where the highlights include the Gothic Church of Our Lady before Týn, the Baroque St Nicholas Church and the medieval Astronomical Clock.
Before you get stuck into sightseeing, though, treat yourself to a slap-up lunch at the unapologetically touristy U Supa (Celetná 563/22) - one of the oldest beerhouses in Prague.
It’s an easy stroll from the Old Town Square to the art nouveau splendour of Francouzská restaurant ( Republiky 1090/5) where the best in Czech cuisine is served.
After dinner, head west for one of the best-kept local secrets in town – Bonvivant’s CTC bar (Bartolomějská 3). This achingly cool cocktail joint is the antithesis of the traditional Prague beer house.
Drag yourself out of bed with the lark to enjoy Charles Bridge, an essential stop on any Prague weekend break itinerary, without the crowds.
All Prague city breaks should also include a hike up through Lesser Town to Prague Castle. On your way up, grab something to eat at Café Savoy (Vítězná 5), a classy eatery with its own in-house bakery and a decent line in full English breakfasts.
The best Prague city breaks involve stepping off the tourist trail, and you can do just that with lunch at local favourite Mlýnská Kavárna (Všehrdova 449/14). This discreet pub has wonderful views over the Vltava River, and is known for its freshly baked bread and beer selection.
If you’re on a cheap Prague break, it also has plenty of low-cost deals on the menu. Follow up lunch with a trip on the funicular railway to the observation tower on Petrin Hill for the ultimate view of Prague.
Most Prague city breaks revolve to some extent around beer, and it would be a shame to leave Prague without sampling at least a couple of the huge range of Czech craft beers on offer. There are plenty of places to slake your thirst around the Old Town, but the top cheap Prague pubs require a little more effort to reach. Catch tram 18 out to the Nusle district for a slap-up meal at Zlý Časy (Čestmírova 5), famous for its low-cost deals and enormous selection of local Prague brews.
Then round off your weekend with a show at nearby boho theatre Na Fidlovačce (Křesomyslova 625).
