What could be better on a winter’s day then roaming around the famous Christmas markets of the historical city of Prague? With its fairy tale rooftops combining Gothic, Renaissance, and Baroque architecture, cathedrals and spires lining the city, cobbled streets and a sprinkling of snow during the colder months, it is a top pick for a winter escape.
As many buildings were left untouched during the 20th Century, Prague has a rich architectural history too, such as Prague Palace, now home to a stunning collection of art and history all under one beautifully baroque roof, the Old Town Square and Charles Bridge, still illuminated by hand lit gas lamps every day in December.
There are also many diverse, weird and wonderful museums and experiences too. Begin with a trip to the world's first Black Light Theatre Srnec and experience this extraordinary art form, using ultraviolet light and out-of-this-world special effects.
Find out about life under communist rule in Prague at the Museum of Communism and immerse yourself in the communist-era, with all its politics and propaganda.
