Prague Travel Guide
Prague is the one of Europe’s top long-weekend destinations and it’s easy to see why. With a beautiful old town, Baroque architecture and an awesome party scene, it’s one of Eastern Europe’s most exciting cities.
Top things to do include exploring the city on tandem-bikes, drinking copious amounts of great, artisan beer and getting a taste of Eastern European history and the Soviet era.
History buffs can walk the Charles Bridge, which was built in the 14th century and has amazing views of the city, explore Prague Castle, which was built in the 9th century and with a mix of Roman and Gothic style architecture. Finish it all up with a coffee in the Old Square, which dates back to the 10th century.
The Old Town is the best place to stay as it’s near the top attractions, museums, bars and restaurants. It’s the most crowded and expensive area however, so if you want something cheaper and more peaceful stay in Vinohrady, which is near the Old Town, or Mala Strana which has a relaxed atmosphere.
The best time to visit Prague is in the late spring or summer months (May-August) when the temperatures are warm and sunny.
