Cheap flights to Prague
The world’s best beers, a skyline that makes Paris jealous and history to rival anywhere in Europe, it’s no wonder tourists are choosing Prague as one of their favourite city break destinations.
Prague has become a byword for the ultimate city break, and it’s not surprising as it really is one of Europe’s most awe-inspiring cities. Tourists flock here in their droves to experience its fairytale splendour of medieval castles, Gothic cathedrals, winding cobblestone streets and a skyline heavy with church spires.
And with a range of architectural styles from the last 900 years, it’s no wonder this place is a World Heritage Site. Oh, and it’s also the birthplace of Budweiser, so expect plenty of places to stop off for a pint or three as you go about your travels. Seems like this city has the best of both worlds.
The city welcomes the grape harvest season with numerous wine festivals, or "vinobrani", throughout the month. One of the biggest is the Festival of the Grape, which will be held at Prague Castle on 20-21 September. New, partly fermented wine ("burcak") can be sampled in the royal gardens. praguewelcome.cz
Roughly 5,000 years of Chinese history is on display at Prague Castle's Imperial Stables. The exhibition, Treasures of Ancient China, features more than 90 pieces on loan from some of China's top museums, including two soldiers from the country's famed Terracotta Army. Until 9 November. kulturanahrade.cz
Strings of Autumn, the city's annual homage to international music talent, comes to Prague on 6 October - 12 November, with performances at various historic locations around the centre. The festival's lineup includes jazz, classical, crossover, early and world music concerts as well as a workshop for kids. strunypodzimu.cz
