Prague is a city for all seasons, offering you an excellent choice of breaks all year round. She shows you a different face according to the time of year when you visit, but each is as beautiful as the other. Visiting Prague in Spring when the flowers are in bloom, wandering through some of the most enchanting Baroque landscaped parks, beautiful palaces and castles is every bit as mesmerising as the spice-infused winter nights of the charming Christmas Markets. A city that is vibrant during the night as well as the day, and also offers you some of the best beer in Europe! Since the invention of Pilsner Urquell in 1842, the Czechs have been famous for producing the world's finest brews - sampling them in the local bars is sure to be a highlight of your stay in Prague, as is the delicious local food.
Each of Prague’s districts has its own characteristic atmosphere and unique charm, which is well worth exploring. Some of the top sights, which you shouldn't miss are: the Old Town Hall with the famous Prague Astronomical Clock, the winding lanes of the Jewish Quarter, which may be familiar from the novels of Franz Kafka, steeped in the legend of the Golem. Cafes enticing you in to come and have a seat, boutiques and sight-seeing cruises on the Vltava. The Gothic Charles Bridge and Church of St. Nicholas in the Lesser Town, the most beautiful Baroque church in Prague. The Palace Gardens set away from the bustle of the city, Petřín with a lookout tower reminiscent of a small Eiffel Tower and Prague Castle.
In 2016 Prague is celebrating the 700th anniversary of Charles IV, an important figure for the nation, as he is considered to be the father of the country. The city of Prague has well earned its UNESCO World Heritage site status for its fine examples of Gothic, Neoclassic and Art Nouveau architecture. All in all Prague has a wealth of history and culture, not to mention a superb collection of hotels to ensure you get the best of the city for your well-deserved break. From the old Jewish Quarter to Wenceslas Square, from Prague Castle to small concert halls, you will be spoilt for choice during your stay in the magnificent city - a city, that for sure, you will want to return to again and again.
As with all of our other destinations, we have personally visited Prague to choose for you a selection of the best hotels. We choose them not only for their high-quality standards but also as places that offer unique local ambience and hospitality. We try to avoid anything which in any way has a 'corporate' feel. The hotels that we have included in our collection are selected for their location, ambience and excellent service they provide throughout. We hope that this will make your stay a truly memorable one.
