Weekend Breaks to Prague
What to See in Prague
It dominates the city’s skyline, so you will very likely want to walk up the hill for a visit to the Gothic spires of Prague Castle, as well as the Baroque façade of the Loreto. Another architectural delight is Charles Bridge, but get there very early to see it in its glory as by 9.00am it hosts a 500m-long fairground and is thronged with visitors. And of course, no short break in Prague is complete without a few minutes staring up at the 13th Century Astronomical Clock and trying to work out what the complex zodiac figures are all about. Prague is a world centre for contemporary art, with the DOX art centre at the hub and more than 50 art galleries also to choose from. For other varied tastes of Prague’s culture, visit Wenceslas Square and the John Lennon Wall.
Czech pub grub is worth checking out at places such as Pivnice u Pivrnce, U Medvídků and U Radnice. The food is no-nonsense, very tasty and not very healthy at all! (But that’s probably why it’s so tasty.) For something more upmarket, Allegro was the first restaurant in the city to win a Michelin star and its menu that includes the likes of foie gras and truffles is suitably luxurious. Prague is of course very popular with stag and hen weekends, and the abundance of bars caters well for these. The city is famous for its beer and bars such as U Zlatého Tygra (‘The Golden Tiger’) and Pivovarský Klub offer fantastic selections of local and international beers. The club scene is superb, with Cross Club featuring live acts as well as DJs, SaSaZu getting very busy (get their early if you don’t want to queue for ages) and Roxy known for its independent and innovative approach.
