Prague City Breaks
of a pint £1.00
When: Although the warmest weather is in the summer months April and May can be pleasant and the city isn’t as crowded with tourists.
Where: The island of Kampa at the Lesser Quarter end of Charles Bridge, as well as being a thing of beauty, offers up something a little bit different with the occasional person in period costume turning up to light old fashioned lamps.
Why: With the city of a hundred spires only a 1 and a half hour flight from London, you could be making the most of its theatres, galleries, museums and – need it be mentioned again – amazing nightlife - in next to no time.
When: The summer months of June to August are your best bet if you’re looking to get some continental sun and, most importantly, make people back in the UK jealous!
Where: The city centre, with its variety of places to eat, drink, explore, take pictures of and wonder at, will ensure there’s something for everyone to enjoy.
Why: With world famous beer and beer loving locals (Czechs are the most avid beer drinkers in the world) it’s a fantastic place to sample some local culture with a frothy top.
When: Nothing can be more romantic than the roofs and cobbles of the old town covered in a blanket of fresh white snow. Go in November and December to enjoy the Christmas markets and warm up together with some mulled wine.
Where: Head to Petřín where you can walk amongst the cherry blossom and take in the amazing views of the city. A known romantic spot, legend has it that a kiss by statue of the romantic poet Karel Hynek Mácha confirms love forever.
Why: A fairy tale city that oozes romance as well as a highly cosmopolitan atmosphere. Do you really need to ask?
When: The period leading up to Christmas in November and December not only brings out the fairy tale beauty of Prague but also offers a host of activities to please everyone, with the Christmas markets and horse and carriage rides through the snow offering a real taste of Christmas magic.
Where: Prague castle will not only capture children’s imagination but also has an old-fashioned toy museum. A fun place for all the family to immerse themselves in the history of the place.
Why: asy to get around, plenty of places to stop for a bite to eat and drink, and largely traffic-free a family holiday in Prague ticks lots of boxes. Despite rising prises it still remains cheaper than back home.
