Picture Perfect

Whether you’re settling into a coffee shop in the heart of the old town – also known as Staré Mesto - or strolling alongside the gorgeous riverside, you’ll find a beauty in every angle of the city on your city break in Prague.

Stay in one of the central districts to be within sight of everything this city has to offer, or choose accommodation that’s nestled in the outskirts to find yourself retreating to a quiet place to lay your head.

A great place to start your Prague city break is the Old Town Square. It’s the city’s main hub where you’ll find a beautiful square kitted out with a great marketplace and the iconic clock tower; stroll through the stalls and pick up some hand crafted souvenirs and soak up the best of Prague’s city life.

Old-World Charm

Head along Národní trída, a bustling street that’s brimming with great shops, beautiful buildings and the modern National Theatre where you’ll always find an exhibition to visit. While you’re there keep an eye out for the famous Dancing House, it’s well worth a photo or two. The Vltava River is great for a slice of peace and quiet in this vibrant city, where you can enjoy an afternoon walk and see incredible panoramas in any season that you choose to take your Prague city break.

Buy some fresh bread and slices of meat from one of the city shops and head to the riverside or up to Vyšehrad for a meal with a view. Wander around the remnants of a several hundred years old castle and visit the nearby famous resting place of a myriad of Czech nationals, including the illustrious composer Dvorak. The stunning sculptures and decorative headstones are second in beauty to the view of the Vltava!

One of the most unique sights is the vivid and constantly changing painted John Lennon Wall on Velkoprevorské námestí, dedicated to the late Beatle and with the theme of love. Don’t miss out on a ride on the funicular up to the Petrín Tower, a smaller version of the Eiffel Tower from Paris, and keep your camera ready for those breathtaking views from the top – a perfect end to a romantic day.
