There are many hidden gems when it comes to exploring Europe and Prague is one of the best. If you’re looking to jet off with your girls, then Prague is one of the best places to explore.
The capital of the Czech Republic is known for its historic core, colourful buildings and gothic architecture, as well as having the best beer and some of the cheapest cocktails in Europe.
If you’re looking to head out to Prague with the girls then you should know why it’s important to renew your EHIC. Your EHIC, along with comprehensive travel insurance will make sure that you are covered in the event of injury or illness at all times on your holiday, ensuring that you are safe at all times.
Prague is one of the most perfect places to go on holiday with the girls, with cheap flights and accommodation and a huge range of things to do there, alongside trendy nightlife.
A trip to another country is not complete without some traditional sightseeing, and in Prague with its history-rich culture, there’s plenty to see. Prague Castle should be at the top of the list, the Gothic spires, towers and palaces that dominate the city centre will make you feel like you’ve stepped straight into a fairy-tale fortress, with a fascinating collection of galleries, museums and historic buildings making it the largest ancient castle in the world (according to the Guinness World Records).
If you’re looking for a step back in time and you’re interested in history then Prague is the perfect place to go. Wenceslas Square is more than a typical city square and has seen much of the country’s history. A giant Mass was held in the square during the revolutionary upheavals, the celebrations about the creation of the new Czechoslovak Republic were held here and the fall of Communism was also announced here in 1989. In addition to these two sightseeing majors, there’s the Vyšehrad Cemetery, Charles Bridge and the Prague Jewish Museum.
Art has played a huge part in the lives of Czech Republicans and historically served as a means of expression, particularly when it came to politics and religion. The oldest forms of art, which can be found at St Agnes’ Convent, date back to the 13th and 14th centuries. Artistic influences can be seen throughout Prague’s architecture and their art, encompassing Gothic themes, Renaissance and baroque styles. New art forms erupted after the country’s independence and there are plenty of places to go to view this art in Prague.
The John Lennon Wall is a great example of youth culture and is a great stop off for your girl’s holiday. Visiting tourists have also begun to add their own graffiti to the wall in memory of the musician.
Other great stop off points if you are interested in art is the Sternberg Palace, the Mucha Museum, Veletržní Palác and the Museum of Young Art.
Prague’s charm doesn’t simply reside in bridges, museums and castles. By night, you will see a livelier side to the city as the public trams and metros fill with smartly dressed people off to the theatre or to see some live music. Classical music, opera and ballet is usually put on at the Prague National Theatre or at the State Opera theatre.
If you’re looking for something a little more traditional then heading to a local pub with the girls is a favourite locals’ pastime. Even if you’re not a big beer drinker, Prague’s pilsner-style lagers are known to be some of the world’s best beers and a trip to Prague is not complete without at least sampling a pint. Different genres of music are also popular in Prague. The Jazz Dock is a modern and romantic jazz club; a little different from the smoky cellars that most of the jazz clubs are found in, in Prague. SaSaZu is one of the most popular dance clubs in the city and there are plenty of bars and venues that you can go to, to catch the latest rock and indie acts too.
