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.
Prague's top museums and galleries will be staying open late on 14 June. Despite long lines, the city's annual Museum Night (7pm-1am) is wildly popular, and admission is free. Favourites include the National Technical Museum and the Jewish Museum. Buses will shuttle visitors between venues. prazskamuzejninoc.cz
Tucked away on the Prague Exhibition Grounds, the Lapidarium exhibits some of the country's most important stone sculptures, many dating back to the 11th century. Original statues from Charles Bridge can also be found here. It's a bit off the beaten track, but definitely worth the effort (422 Vystaviste).
The fourth annual Prague Pride takes place on 11-17 August. This year's programme includes numerous cultural events and parties at different venues around the city. The festival, one of the biggest Prides in Central Europe, culminates with a parade through the city centre, followed by a concert on 16 August. praguepride.cz
