A city with year-round appeal

Not many European cities can be described as year-round destinations; however Prague is certainly one that is not restricted by seasonality. City breaks in Prague are as much about soaking up the sun, along urban beaches, as they are about absorbing the festive atmosphere when the Christmas markets set up their stalls.

A timeless city, with layers of history and charm - Prague has thoroughly earned its UNESCO World Heritage status.Bursting at the seams with a magnificent display of stunning architecture – which ranges from gothic to neoclassical – this compact city is best explored, and admired, by foot. After a day of sightseeing, embrace the traditional café culture at Café Imperial and admire its splendid Art Nouveau décor. Or sample the nightlife and Prague’s famous beer around Mala Strana and Nove Mesto, as the city transforms into a buzzing metropolis after dark. With regular flights, carefully selected hotels in central locations and fascinating things to do, Prague has it all.

Prague is transformed into a winter wonderland at Christmas. A picturesque city that is already famous for its fairy tale, medieval squares – the beauty of Prague is exaggerated by the magic of its Christmas festivities. The main markets can be found in the Old Town Square and Wenceslas Square, so soak up the festive atmosphere as you browse – picking up hearty food and mulled wine, known locally as svařené víno, as you go. You’ll have plenty of opportunity for Christmas shopping, with traditional wooden toys, Bohemian crystal, and beautiful puppets and dolls making great gifts. A stay at the family-run Cloister Inn won’t break the bank.
