Prague is unquestionably one of the most beautiful cities in Europe. As Prague has become more accessible to international visitors, so it has developed an ever widening level of appeal. Inevitably, this has contributed to rising costs in many respects but one way of limiting such costs is by renting your own holiday apartment in the city. Choosing to rent what may be a studio flat through to a multi-bed roomed apartment in Prague can both represent considerable savings on what would otherwise be hotel costs and allow you to arrange your schedule in a fashion which suit’s the requirements of your party.
The architecture and romantic beauty of Prague is one of the top reasons why visitors come to the city. Wenceslas Square is the heartland of Prague and choosing a holiday apartment in or around the square will provide an excellent base for your explorations. The square is dominated by the huge statue of St Wenceslas at its top end and the National Museum and Opera House are conveniently close by. Organised tours are widely available and a popular way to see the city is on one of the River Vltava boat cruises, several of which include a dinner option. There are also tours which incorporate the countryside immediately surrounding Prague and its fairy tale style castles, such as Karlstejn or Konopiste.
Its increasing popularity as a stag weekend destination is largely due to Prague’s vibrant nightlife. Renting an apartment in the city centre will best allow you to spend the night partying in Prague’s lively bars and clubs until dawn. Bar types are across the entertainment spectrum, from the gothic themed Double Trouble cellar bar to the Hawaiian themed Aloha Cocktail Club. Restaurants come in all forms in Prague but if you are in search of the traditional, you should definitely visit the Medieval Tavern in the Old Town for a banquet feast of truly historical proportions. Alternatively, the Bily Konicek Restaurant and Jazz Club affords a choice between local and multinational cuisines in twelfth century Czech surrounds.
It may surprise many visitors to Prague to find British household names such as Marks and Spencer and Debenhams represented on Wenceslas Square. This modern aspect of shopping in Prague only complements, however, the traditional shops and markets, providing a wider variety of choice. Prague’s Old Town Square has more traditional shops for which to look for souvenirs, as well as a permanent market, while Parizska is the street which features the city’s top of the range boutiques, amidst trendy restaurants and bars. Visitors to Prague in December will be delighted by the Christmas markets, which light up the city and offer a whole host of festive goods and treats.
