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
Amateur folklore troupes from around the world will hold a number of free performances on Wenceslas Square, Old Town Square and Namesti Republiky as part of the 8th annual Prague Folklore Days (24-27 July). praguefestival.cz/folklore
