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
Prague's Christmas markets kick off with the Old Town Square tree-lighting ceremony on 29 November at 5pm and run until 11 January. Sip mulled wine and snack on traditional Czech holiday pastries while browsing one-of-a-kind souvenirs at these dazzling seasonal markets scattered throughout the city's public squares.
Dozens of Czech designers will be showcasing their wares during a special holiday edition of the Holesovice Fashion Market, taking place on 28-30 November in Halls 13 and 14 at the Prague Market (Prazska Trznice). Pick from handmade jewellery, shoulder bags, dresses and other unique fashion accessories and decorations (Bubenské Náb?eí, novetrhy.cz).
