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.
There are an infinite number of ways to enjoy Czech lagers while visiting Prague. At the newly opened Spa Beerland you'll be able to relax in a royal-oak whirlpool tub filled with natural extracts used to brew Czech Krusovice beer, while enjoying an unlimited number of pints (9 Zitna, pivnilaznespabeerland.cz).
Hidden below Hotel Jalta is the city's newest Cold War museum: a post-World War II fallout shelter that was kept a state secret until 1998. The hotel opened the bunker, furnished with authentic-looking period pieces, to the public last year. Tours are in Czech, but English text is provided. Reservations required (45/818 Václavské Nám?stí, hoteljalta.com).
Prague's popular Easter markets (5-27 April) are scattered across the city, including in the trendy Vinohrady and Zizkov neighbourhoods. But the largest and busiest seasonal market can be found in Old Town Square. Open daily from 10am till 10pm, local vendors hawk crafts and coloured Easter eggs.
