Prague city breaks
are ideal for couples looking for a romantic trip away and there is a multitude of couple-specific activities to enjoy in the Czech Republic capital. The city’s long and interesting history can be seen at every turn with its winding mazes of old fashioned cobbled lanes that lead explorers to a fairytale-like castle that overlooks the entire city from its domineering hillside location. Romantic strolls on the banks of the twisting river, wandering the famous Prague Christmas Market and exploring the hidden secrets in the city centre make Prague the ultimate European romantic city destination.
The Old City
The Old City is home to a collection of restaurants and eateries that cater to a wide range of palates. Good pizzas, traditional German sausages and fine French dining can all be enjoyed here and many couples choose to dine here before catching a concert in one of the many local theatres. The Old City is somewhat unique in its ability to effortlessly blend old with new as modern and uber trendy restaurants can be found in narrow lanes lined with cobbled stones that allow you to experience all kinds of attractions at once. A bevy of museums and art galleries are also located here as well as a host of cosmopolitan coffee shops, boutique stores and funky bars that have a romantic air about them due to their historic location.
The Vitava River winds its way through the city and there are many bridges that arch their way over the water that provide great view points of the city scape. The architecture in Prague is interesting to explore, and couples visiting the city may wish to spend an afternoon strolling around the different buildings that range from modern and chic through to historic and charming.
The Dancing House is a must-see while in Prague on a romantic break and the strange, wonky building also boasts a French restaurant on the rooftop that offers great views over the city. Andel is a busy part of the city and is home to a new shopping centre and modern buildings that provide a different insight into a more contemporary side of Prague.
There is plenty for couples to see and do while in Prague and some of the highlights include:
• Romantic walks
• Exploring the city streets
• Admiring the interesting architecture
• Enjoying the local restaurants
• Discovering the historic churches and looming yet magical castle
• Riverside strolls
• Seeing the city scape from one of the many bridges that traverse the flowing river
If you choose to visit in the winter, you will be spoilt for things to do with your loved one! The Prague Christmas Market is one of the most famous and most popular in the whole of Europe and as one would often expect from a cold, Christmas market; roasted chestnuts, mulled wines and wooden stalls filled with a variety of potential gifts abound here. Tall pines trees are seemingly everywhere during the crisp, Christmas period and the smell of fir needles fill the air at every turn.
The aptly named Prague Castle is known for being one of the most intricate castles in the world and the original building oozes history with its build-date dating back to the 10th century. The castle is eerie yet enchanting, historic yet not ruinous and dark but romantic with its medieval architecture. No Prague city break is complete without an exploration of the Prague Castle!
