Prague is a fantastic city to visit at any time of the year, and if anything, it’s slightly more appealing in the winter as you have a good excuse to take time out from the sightseeing in one of the chic cafes you’ll find at every corner in the old town. Take your thermal gloves and a hat and enjoy the bracing cold, then take an hour or two to defrost before heading out again to do some more exploring.
One of the most beautiful sights in the old town that you are unlikely to miss is the Charles Bridge. It has 16 arches and is the home to thirty Baroque statues with religious significance. Every day in the afternoon, the bridge becomes full of snack stall holders, entertainers and painters, who sell their wares to the many tourists coming to admire the bridge and its views over the River Vltava. You’ll do a lot of walking in and around Prague, so it’s best to pack some decent footwear, like Scarpa walking trainers.
There are so many hotels and guest houses to choose from in old town Prague, you’ll be spoilt for choice. The Charles Bridge Residence is only yards away from the bridge itself, and so makes a great location for exploring the city. There are only eight rooms, which gives the hotel an exclusive feel. In fact, a group can book the whole place and have it to themselves.
Similarly located is the Hotel Bijou de Prague. Other famous sightseeing spots nearby are the Old Town Square and Wenceslas Square. At the Bijou hotel, the rooms are decorated in an old fashioned style but have all modern facilities including wi-fi.
The Bohemia Apartments in Prague’s old town is a renovated building that is near to Charles Bridge and the Jewish quarter. These apartments have great views of Charles Bridge and Prague Castle.
There are so many interesting buildings to explore within Prague old town that most people find it hard to fit everything they want to see into their stay. The Museum of Communism offers an interesting journey through the past, and the displays end with information on the Velvet Revolution that ended the communist reign.
Prague is also famous for its Pilsner beer, so you should make some of your stops between sights at one of the many bars that sell the local brew. One of the favourite beers is Gambrinus, as is Kozel’s Medium. However there are also several Pilsners to choose from. Czechs who hail from Pilsen say that their city’s Pilsner is the best because of the quality of the water that it is made with. You’ll have to do a tasting session to see which gets your vote.
The Czechs call the Old Town Staré Mêsto, and when you're exploring its streets, don’t forget to look up, as there are gargoyles galore, peering down at you from almost every old building.
