Prague City Breaks
Stunningly beautiful, cheap weekend breaks in Prague take you to the City of a Thousand Spires. We at Co-operative Travel haven’t managed to count them all yet, but you can count on us to get you the cheapest deals on last minute Prague city breaks.
In fact, there are around 500 steeples punctuating the Prague city skyline. But if 19th century mathematician Bernard Bolzano made a few errors, it’s hardly surprising. Prague package city breaks land you in a city rich in Bohemian, Gothic and Baroque architecture, with a heritage spanning 700 years. Few European city breaks have Prague’s cultural legacy of 14th century synagogues, churches, palaces and monuments, presided over by the magnificent Charles Bridge, spanning the River Vltava.
The city is dominated by its ancient 14th century castle. Officially the largest in the world, the halls, towers, palaces and churches describe every architectural style of the last thousand years. All Prague city breaks should include the Romanesque Basilica of St George and the Gothic St Vitus Cathedral. Those on breaks with the children will enjoy the Toy Museum – one of many in the city.
Take time too, to marvel at the mediaeval Mathematical Clock in the Old Town – the only working example in the world. Another “must see” – particularly for those booking short breaks at Christmas – is Wenceslas Square, originally a 13th century horse market. Prague zoo is another family favourite.
Cheap Prague city breaks offer an abundance of cheap restaurants, pavement cafes and lively beer gardens, particularly in the cosmopolitan New Town (circa 1348), which also boasts chic nightclubs and leafy riverside parks. Prague is rivalled only by Berlin for its passion with malty beverages, with almost as many bars as churches – and several good breweries too.
Those booking bargain city breaks to Prague will find public transport cheap and effective, with horse-drawn carriage rides for romantics. We at Coop Travel haven’t even touched on the year-round calendar of music festivals and art events yet. Our best suggestion is that you book one of our Prague package city breaks and discover the magic for yourself.
