Czech Republic’s cool capital, Prague, is perfect for weekend breaks of history, architecture and nightlife. On a city break here you can stroll the opulent streets of the Jewish quarter, daydreaming between window displays, get lost within Prague Castle, or review Prague’s best beer gardens and bars (the oldest pub in Prague dates back to 1499!) A city break in Prague isn’t complete without a stroll around the Old Town, a photo of the astronomical clock and tasting trdelník. The best time to go to Prague is in spring and autumn – aim for May and September to avoid the crowds, but make the most of the warm weather.

Where to go out in Prague
Prague has one of the largest clubs in central Europe, Karlovy Lazne. This nightclub in Prague has 5 floors, and an excellent view of the Charles Bridge on the rooftop.
