Turn your city break into a microadventure 

Prague:  Riverside walks along the Vitana


A 10 mile taxi ride from the airport lies the Vitava river. 

It is broad and peaceful and following it slowly north on foot is a pleasant way to get off the beaten track. It's a bohemian style walk through actual Bohemia. You can take a bus back into the city or to the airport from Kralupy nad Vltavou. It makes the initial taxi ride somewhat longer, but crossing over to walk on the east side of the river will give you a quieter hike. You'll probably meet a few curious fishermen peacefully watching the world go by who are interested to chat with you. They won't be used to seeing tourists out here. And that is a good thing. 


Level of Difficulty: Medium.  


What to pack: Warm clothes (check the weather forecast!), hiking shoes, woolly hat, headtorch, raingear, sleeping bag, mat and bivvy bag. 


Best time to go: late spring / early summer.

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.
