View Dates & Prices

Be charmed with a visit to the storybook city of Prague. Sitting amid the gentle landscapes of the Bohemian plateau, Prague is a magical city of bridges, cathedrals, gold tipped towers and church spires.

Since the Velvet Revolution that freed the Czechs from Communism, Prague has taken its place amongst the most popular destinations to visit in Europe and it’s easy to see why. Its cobbled streets and hidden courtyards are an explorer’s dream and offer the wandering traveller fantastic discoveries. On this 3-night city break you will enjoy a walking tour of the city and then plenty of time to discover the ‘city of a hundred spires’ for yourself. 

Coach transfer to and from Belfast (Glengall Street) to Dublin Airport on selected dates.

Holiday highlights

Old Town Square

The centrepiece of Stare Mesto is the huge 1.7 hectare Old Town Square. It has been Prague's working heart since the 10th century and hosted its largest market until the beginning of the 20th century. It's surrounded by a maze of alleys and is home to some of Prague's most famous monuments.

Petrin Hill

This 318m (1043ft) hill is topped with a network of eight parks. It is great for brisk walks and postcard-perfect views of the 'City of 100 Spires.'

Prague Castle

With a magnificent cliff-top outlook, a 1000 year history going back to a simple walled-in compound in the 9th century and an enormous scale that qualifies it as the biggest ancient castle in the world, Prague Castle is the indisputable centrepiece of the Czech capital. 

Josefov (Old Jewish Quarter) 

This slice of Stare Mesto contains the remains of the once-thriving neighbourhood of Josefov, Prague's former Jewish ghetto. The half-dozen old synagogues, a ceremonial hall and the powerfully melancholic Old Jewish Cemetery were perversely preserved by Nazi leaders, who declared them to be a 'museum of an extinct race'. Instead, all have survived as a memorial to seven centuries of oppression.
