24 hours in Prague
Prague city breaks are not complete without a visit to the many concerts and excellent restaurants in and around the streets of the old city. The romantic city of Prague is situated in the heart of Europe and steeped in history with many monuments paying tribute to the city's past. Prague is a maze of cobbled lanes and churches leading to the fairytale castle towering on the hillside overlooking the city where a cosmopolitan present and a historic past blend perfectly.
The Czech Capital, often known as 'Golden Prague' due to the glittering art and architecture throughout the city, is a popular tourist destination. Stroll over the famous bridges arching across the water of the Vltava River, the city's backbone or admire its most important sites and marvel at the medieval quarters on both banks of the river.
Winter only means one thing in Prague; extravagant festivities and Christmas cheer. Around 150 wooden stalls make up the Prague Christmas Market, with the smell of roasting chestnuts and fir trees filling the air.
Fred.\ Holidays also offers a number of city breaks to alternative Czech Republic destinations as well as river cruise holidays taking in Český Krumlov, Karlovy Vary, and other fascinating locations - call us for details or a quote!
