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.
The picturesque Prazsky Semmering rail route will take you on a panoramic tour through the lesser-known parts of the city, with views of the castle, river and valleys. Catch the train at the main station (Hlavni Nadrazi) and ride it to Zlicin, the last stop before the train leaves Prague.
The delightful Blood, Love & Rhetoric improv troupe has become a fixture at Malostranska Beseda's Trick Bar in the Little Quarter (21 Malostranske namesti) since making its debut five years ago. Shows are staged each Thursday at 8pm, with a special experimental performance the first Sunday of every month. blrtheatre.com
Prague's Easter markets are open for business from 1-23 April. Little wooden hut villages, selling intricately hand-painted eggs and other colourful knickknacks as well as sweet seasonal treats are set up across the city, including prime central locations on Old Town Square, Namesti Miru and Wenceslas Square.
