Take a wander through the labyrinth of old streets that are riddled with history, stop by one of the pubs and enjoy a beer, or visit the national museum and get to grips with what the city of Prague is all about. With scenic delights around every corner, there will never be a dull moment on your Prague city break.
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.

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.
