Prague, Czech Republic

Historic Prague beckons visitors with its Gothic architecture and Baroque buildings. The City of 100 Spires is well named indeed. The Czech capital’s ancient skyline takes the breath away. For those keen to delve into Europe’s past, there can be no better place.

Sitting astride the beautiful Vlatva River, Prague’s treasures are rich indeed. Be sure to visit the great castle on the hill, before heading down to the Old Town Square, with its plentiful cafes, bars and restaurants, and the ever-popular Astronomical Clock. You’ll need to cross the Vlatva, taking the stunning Charles Bridge, a river crossing dating back to 1402 that is a significant landmark in its own right. There’s no bad time to take a trip to Prague, but winter is especially wonderful, with the Christmas Markets in full flow, and illuminations everywhere. Planning a visit to Prague? Trust us on this, you won’t regret your choice.
