The Czech capital Prague is one of the finest cities in Europe, oozing with history, culture and great sights. Its iconic red roofed buildings and perfectly preserved architectural works, including everything from the Gothic Period to High Baroque, make visitors feel as though they have stepped back in time. It is said that even Hitler loved the city so much that he made sure it remained relatively unscathed during World War II, in stark comparison to many of Europe’s major cities.
Nowadays visitors flock to Prague year-round, hoping to take in the sights, cheap prices and excellent nightlife. Being surrounded by some of the major European players means that Prague has excellent transport links and is the perfect stop on a European tour.
A major attraction of modern day Prague is its affordability, especially when compared to other popular capitals such as London, Amsterdam and Rome, which makes it easy to take a trip lasting longer than the usual weekend stay. Accommodation prices in Prague also reflect this, and those opting to stay a few extra days will find a holiday apartment better value for money than a hotel.
