City breaks are a great way to experience a different place for a few days, and when it comes to culture and history, Europe is packed with some stunning cities to explore. If you are sitting at home one day, or perhaps in your office at work, dreaming of a few days away, a change of some sorts, then this kind of holiday is ideal.

Of course, one destination which always springs to mind, especially for those stag dos we all know and love, is the beautiful and historic city of Prague.

Whether you are visiting for that stag do we just mentioned, with cheap beer and endless activities for that last weekend of freedom, or you’re heading off for a romantic break with your loved one, the chance to spend the weekend in Prague is certainly something you should do at least once, full of history, architecture, culture, and traditions.

The famous Astronomical Clock, the beautiful Wenceslas Square, Charles Bridge, and the beautiful Old Town Square, these are just a few of the must visits when you head to this picturesque and fairytale-like city.

There is more good news, and that is that low cost airlines head to Prague regularly, which means a break here could be cheap to say the least. No matter what month of the year you will be able to find a bargain-busting deal, with airlines such as EasyJet, and if you shop around for your accommodation, you could be looking at a truly bargainous break. Winter is a particularly magical time to visit in particular.

You will no doubt have heard the rumours that eating out and drinking in Prague is cheap, and that is certainly true; this is one of the reasons why those stag parties head here, because beer is so cheap you can obviously drink much more!

Whether you are there for a total knees up party experience, or you are simply exploring somewhere new, it’s important to check out the history and architecture at every turn. We mentioned Charles Bridge, and you simply have to head here. This pedestrianised bridge is decorated with 30 statues of saints, and is a popular place to go for a walk. On top of this, Old Town Square is full of historic baroque buildings of pastel colours, and a cruise down the Vltava River could give you a totally different view on this beautiful city.

Nicknamed “the city of a hundred spires” because of the medieval skyline you will see the moment you enter the city, you will also notice a more modern area too, showing you that new and old truly do combine here. The main shopping area is around Wenceslas Square and Republic Square, so this is where you need to head if you want to splash the cash, with smaller boutique shops in Lesser town.

Put simply, Prague is a stunning city, and if you get the chance to visit, do not turn it down!
