If the Czech Republic is the heart of Europe, Prague is its beating pulse. Known for its stunning baroque architecture, diverse music and cheap, tasty beers, this capital city is ideal for a budget-friendly city break. In snow or shine, Prague has a plethora of sites and experiences to explore. Whether you are climbing the stairs to its castle or those of the 4-storey night club Karlovy Lázně, Prague is the perfect host for your next adventure.
Old Town Square
Old Town Square is one of the city’s best spots. The Astronomical Clock is mounted on the Old Town Hall, making for some great photos, but also a great excuse for restaurants to overcharge their customers. The Square is encircled by beautiful churches and monuments and can also be home to some spectacular Christmas markets!
John Lennon Wall
The John Lennon Wall has been a public art piece since the 1980s. Once based on Beatles music, it has now become a place where people creatively express their thoughts on modern, societal topics. Each photo of the wall will look different to the next, as people put their personal stamp, making it an ever changing monument.
A quarter of Prague is made up of parks, making it one of the greenest cities in the world. These grounds are found next to some of the most iconic spots in the city: The Castle Gardens, Wallenstein Gardens and Vrtba terraced Gardens. These green spaces make a great spot for breaking up a jam-packed day.
This is an iconic bridge, known in Prague for crossing the Vltava river – it was the only way of doing so until 1841, representing a vital connection between the Old Town and Prague Castle. Lined with thirty baroque statues, the bridge is wide and offers incredible views down the river, especially at sunset.
