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.
It's wine season! The botanical gardens (134 Nadvorni) will host tastings and live music on 10-11 September, while the Festival of the Grape will take place at Prague Castle on 17-18 September. The St. Wenceslas Vines Festival at Villa Richter (6 Stare zamecke schody) will be serving newly fermented wines on 28 September.
Douanier Rousseau: Painter's Paradise Lost, French painter Henri Rousseau's Czech debut, is on display at the National Gallery's Kinsky Palace (12 Staromestske namesti) through 15 January. The exhibition features a range of work from still-lifes and landscapes to Rousseau's colourful jungle paintings, which he completed despite never having left France.
Get your holiday shopping done at Prague's famous outdoor Christmas markets, which are scattered throughout the city, including the biggies on Wenceslas and Old Town squares, where vendors hawk handmade jewellery, wooden toys and hand-painted tree ornaments. Mulled wine and traditional Czech pastries are also on hand. Running through 4 January.
