Prague City Breaks

Prague is an enchanting city and is ideal for a short break – there are few other cities in Europe that can offer six hundred years of architecture so completely untouched by war or natural disaster. The Old Town (or Stare Mesto) is a beautiful maze of small streets that has plenty of new shops, galleries, cafes and bars. However, the Old Town’s most famous landmark is still the Astronomical Clock.

The famous Charles Bridge leads you from the Old Town to Mala Strana (The Lesser Quarter) where the quaint streets still wind and meander between palaces, churches and gardens. A five minute walk from the Old Town brings you to the Nove Mesto - or New Town - where Wenceslas Square is presided over by a horse-mounted St. Wenceslas. Prague is an old-world city that’s constantly developing, and as a city break destination it’s beautiful, affordable and easy to reach so why not treat yourself and book your city break to Prague today?


If you’re looking for somewhere to enjoy a few drinks then Baracnicka Rychta is great, especially if you fancy attending one of the gigs that’s regularly hosted there as well. We’d also recommend Chateau Rouge and the James Joyce bar – particularly if you’re feeling homesick!


While the wooden puppets and mechanical toys are simply intriguing and ingenious, you might feel overexposed to them as there is such an abundance of these shops. The same rules apply to the crystal shops – they’re nice but there’s a few too many of them!

The trick to shopping in Prague is to seek out the quirky shops in the side streets as this is where the true treasures lie – so don’t be afraid to wander into some of the smaller shops in the city.

When in Prague...

Make sure to visit the Prague Castle, the Lobkowicz Palace, St. Vitus Cathedral, the markets in Old Town Square and Charles Bridge.
