Prague city breaks take you to one of the most popular towns in Europe. Millions flock each year to wander the old town with its medieval centre, to visit the many tourist attractions and enjoy the warm welcome that is given to all holidaymakers. The city was very fortunate during the second world war as little damage was done by allied bombing raids and its historic buildings were left intact. Prague has a great cultural heritage but it has also gained a reputation as a party destination with a lively nightlife. It therefore attracts a wide range of people from couples of all ages to groups of young adults on stag and hen weekends.
Known as the city of spires because of its numerous churches, Prague has the River Vitava cutting through it. Prague Castle is on one side and the old town square on the other. When in the old town, it is as if you have stepped back in time. The cobbled streets and squares are pedestrianised and wherever you look, you'll find a wide range of architectural styles that span the centuries. These include medieval, baroque, renaissance and gothic. The most famous bridge is the Charles Bridge, built in 1357, takes you from the old town across to the castle which sits high on a hill. If you wander over the bridge you can pick up a bus on the other side to avoid the strenuous walk to the castle. The Castle is a large site and is more like a fortified community with church, museums, palaces and dwellings. The famous cathedral of St. Vitus is there. Apart from the Castle, every sightseeing list includes a tour of the old town, the Town Hall and the Astronomical Clock, the church of Our lady, St. Nicholas Church in Mala Strana. There are museums, galleries, theatres and concert halls. Prague is a city of music and you'll find lunchtime and evening concerts in churches throughout the city.
