Prague the cheapest city for Brits this spring

Brits considering city breaks in Prague will be pleased to learn that the Czech capital is the cheapest destination

Brits considering city breaks in Prague will be pleased to learn that the Czech capital is the cheapest destination for UK holidaymakers this spring.

According to the Post Office Travel Money’s City Costs Barometer, prices in Prague are 38 per cent lower now than they were in 2009, despite the pound buying less Czech koruna than it did 12 months ago.

City break items in the Czech capital including flights to Prague, accommodation, meals and sightseeing totalled £106.17, which is almost two-thirds cheaper than New York (£307.96).

CzechTourism spokesman Filip Remenec said Prague has many attractions for tourists in addition to a wide range of hotels catering to all budgets.

"In Prague we have over 650 hotels, so there is plenty of choice. We have more beds than in Vienna, Budapest, Milano or even Barcelona," he explained.

Mr Remenec went on to recommend visits to Prague Castle, the Old Town Bridge and Old Town Square, while he also suggested that Brits sample the Czech cuisine.

CzechTourism findings published in January showed that Prague is the seventh most popular city in Europe terms of tourist arrivals and the 19th most visited in the world.
