Prague, Czech Republic Vacation Travel

More About Prague - Editor's Tips - Weather Maps & Dining

When to go?
Peak season is April to October, when you can stroll the historic streets in comfort. But do not be fooled: Prague is a popular European destination, and during most holidays (regardless of season), hotels become booked early. An off-season visit during winter can save money and leave you enjoying vistas of the Vltava River beautifully blanketed in snow.

Where to stay?
With 15 numbered districts in Prague, lodging can get confusing. To further complicate matters, the central historic district, Praha 1, is further subdivided into quarters; Mala Strana, Hradcany, Stare Mesto, and Nove Mesto. Hotels in the central historic district are expensive by European standards. Several agencies offer more affordable rentals of apartments and rooms in private homes.

What to do?
Prague is a city of historic buildings and architecture best enjoyed on foot. At times, streets in the historic district can be overrun with tourists and vendors, so get up early to avoid the crowds. A visit to Prague (or Praha as the Czechs call it) would not be complete without a stroll across the Charles Bridge. Beware of pickpockets, though, as the high density of tourists equates to easy targets.
