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.
A beloved winter tradition, Prague's popular outdoor ice rink opens on the square behind the Estates Theatre in the Old Town from 1 December till 31 January. Open daily from 10am until 10pm. Skate rentals cost just €1.80/CZK 50.
