Prague, the city of a hundred soaring spires and, to many, the most enchanting of European capital cities. A thousand years of history are embedded in the stones of the elaborate facades – Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque in charming profusion. At the heart of the city sits Old Town Square with its pastel coloured buildings, the daily crowd of onlookers waiting for the striking of the Astronomical Clock, almost as old as time itself. Horse-drawn carriages transport visitors over cobblestone streets to unforgettable sights, perhaps the most dramatic being Prague Castle. Shaking off its winter mantle, Prague comes alive with the Spring Festival, with a host of alfresco concerts and operatic spectaculars. Wander across Charles Bridge, buzzing with artists and live performers, or take a break at one of the numerous Bohemian sidewalk cafes, with the River Vltava slipping gently by.
The climate in Prague varies greatly with very cold winters and hot summers. December through to February are the coldest months, with the hottest months being July through to September. The best times to visit are spring and autumn when the weather is mild and pleasant.
