Prague is a compact city bursting with a mish-mash of stunning architectural styles - including Gothic, Renaissance and Art Nouveau influences - so it's the perfect place to get out your camera and stretch your legs. Walk the cobblestone streets of the Lesser Town (Malá Strana), pay a visit to the Old Town Square (Staré Město) and check out the Jewish Quarter (Josefov) for a real taste of Prague's historic past.
Take a stroll along Prague's iconic Charles Bridge, which has been the main crossing over the Vtlava River for hundreds of years and has featured in films, art and literature ever since. You also won't want to miss having a closer look at Prague Castle - once home to kings and emperors, it's now home to the president of the Czech Republic.
Pay a visit to Prague's astronomical clock in the Old Town Square to see a piece of time-telling genius, and make sure you also set a little time aside to wander the shops of the New Town (Nové Město), where you'll find designer clothes and nice mementos.
If you're visiting Prague during the winter months, make sure you pay a visit to the annual Christmas markets, where you'll find a range of sweet and savoury treats - hot, candied almonds are a great way to keep your hands warm while browsing, as is a cup of spiced wine. Winter is also an ideal time for romantic breaks in Prague, as the buildings in the centre are strewn with fairy lights and the atmosphere is perfect for couples.
Prague is a cultural capital, so you'll be able to find everything from ballet performances to lively nightclubs in its various venues, and there are many different evening entertainments to choose from.
