Spring in Prague
The famous Prague Spring Festival is a celebration encompassing the entire city, providing music and entertainment to the palaces and museums and entertaining the thousands of visitors that descend on the capital each year. For a long time the city of Prague was smothered by the iron blanket of communism with many people not able to set foot in the city. By comparison, today the city is a bustling tourist hotspot, blooming with colour and life and an opposite to the days of communist rule.
Take some time out of your break to walk the walk of Kings and Queens up the winding cobbled streets towards Prague Castle. As the centre piece of the Czech monarchy for hundreds of years, the grand castle is a popular tourist attraction, attracting thousands of visitors every year. With a history of over 1100 years, the story of Prague Castle is a symbol of Prague’s long association with Christianity and as a show of strength for the Czech empire. Originally made out of timber and soil the castle has gone under many reconstruction projects with raids, wars and fires placing a burden on the structure.
Prague city breaks are ideal for both families and couples, with a selection of modern attractions to visit along with museums and exhibitions to keep the whole family entertained.
