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.

PraguePrague

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.

The Prague Castle is considered the largest castle complex in the world, according to the Guinness Book of World Records. The original buildings are from the 10th century with modifications made throughout until the 14th century. This enchanting medieval monument is a must when on holiday on a Prague city break. Do not miss the opportunity to snap up a few bargains in the city's many markets, as brand name goods are somewhat cheaper in Prague than in many other European destinations.

 Things to do

Climb the 299 steps to the viewing platform of the Petrin Observation Tower on Petrin Hill. You'll enjoy a magnificent view of the Czech Republic when you reach the top.

Visit some of the oldest pubs in Prague in the company of a local guide and learn the history of one of the most important industries (brewing) of Prague.

Communist Walking Tour:A walk around some of the most famous Communist symbols, resistance areas and locations in Prague. The tour reflects the turbulence and lifestyle of Communist Prague.

Family Fun

Prague Zoo: Located in the picturesque environment of the Troja Basin, the zoo is open all year round and definitely worth a visit.

Exhibition Ground and Stromovka Park: In summer months the funfair is a great choice for families with children and Prague's young people alike.

Detsky ostrov (Children's Island): Prague's smallest island and, as the name suggests, the island offers activities especially for small kids. Escape from the busy city streets with a few swings, climbing frames and a sandpit to occupy toddlers, as well as a mini football pitch and netball court for older children.
