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.
U Luzickeho Seminare, a winding street in the Little Quarter, is lined with one-of-a-kind shops, perfect for picking out a couple of unique souvenirs. Browse the lovely crystal glass collection at Artel (No.7) or the jewellery and colourful handcrafts at Silver & Art (No.42).
Catch a show at the historic Estates Theatre, where the world premiere of Mozart's Don Giovanni was held in 1787. The famous opera, along with a number of ballets, concerts and dramas, will be performed this month (1 Ovocny Trh, estatestheatre.cz).
Considered the Czech answer to Oktoberfest, the Prague Beer Festival, on 16 May - 1 June, offers visitors the chance to taste more than 70 different kinds of the region's best lagers. ceskypivnifestival.cz
