Prague - a Great Short Break

Trevor Smith on 28 August 2007
Prague is a great city to visit as a European destination.

The hotel that I chose was just outside the city and was around a 10 minute tram ride into the historic city centre. I was positioned perfectly near the 'old castle' and had an excellent restaurant within my hotel that overlooked this beautiful city.

Whilst in Prague I recommend that you visit Wencelas Square, as this is the centre point of the city and a place that I found to be truly magical. Whilst in Prague I also visited the Mechanical Clock and Prague Castle to admire the Saint Vitus Cathedral. Steeped in culture and history I really did enjoy wandering around the old cobbled streets taking in the various sites and sounds of this eastern european city. A boat cruise that is definitely worth doing and leaves from under the Charles Bridge is very reasonable and includes a drink and cake! A personal favourite of mine!

Prague really is unique, there are so many interesting places to visit and a variety of shops that you will inevitably miss the crowds and really get the feel of this wonderful city.

It was a great break and I would love to return.
