Picturesque Prague with its countless monuments and sights, cheap alcohol and great classical musical scene is a destination which simply appeals to everyone. With delicious Czech cuisine and beer and so much to see and do all at affordable prices, it is a great and beautiful city break.
Head to the Old Town Square, one of Europe’s prettiest squares boasting plenty of great restaurants and pavement cafes to try as well as the beautiful commanding Gothic Church of Our Lady before Týn. As well as the Astronomical Clock, the Old Town Hall offers fantastic views over the city from the top of the tower. If you are visiting in the month of December, you will be treated to the beautiful Christmas Market offering quaint gifts, great food, delicious mulled cider and an incredible Christmas tree, one of the most magical in the world.
Cross the bustling and historic Charles Bridge which connects the Old Town with Lesser Town, an equally picturesque area with narrow side streets situated at the bottom of the Castle Hill. Be sure to explore here as you will come across the impressive graffiti filled John Lennon wall full of peaceful messages and quirky drawings. Up the hill, you will find Prague Castle which not only looks like a fairy tale on the top of the hill but is complete with a stunning cathedral and gardens. It's the world’s largest ancient castle and from here it is only a short walk across to the lovely Letna Park which potentially offers the best views of the city.
Visit the Jewish museum which consists of six monuments spread across Josefov including the Old-New Synagogue - Europe’s oldest working synagogue, the extremely impressive Old Cemetery and the Pinkas Synagogue where you can see the names of the 77000 Jewish Czechoslovak victims during the Nazi reign inscribed into the walls. Now with great eateries and home of the city’s luxury shopping district with fabulous boutiques and international brands of Burberry, Prada and more, it is definitely worth exploring to see the fusion of its modern reclaimed opulence and humbling history.
