Top Tips

Before you go, check online if the cable car is running as it often closes for long periods of time

Check restaurant menus before you go into them, it sounds obvious but we prejudged a restaurant and when we saw the bill we were shell-shocked

Before you book ghost/legends tour make sure you read the reviews as one that we went on was not as interactive and hooking as usual.

If you are able to go to Prague for New Year's Eve make sure you get to Charle's Bridge at around 11pm to get the best possible view

Visit the astronomical clock on the hour from 9am-11pm to see the procession of the twelve Apostles

Find an outdoor area of a restaurant/bar near Wenceslas Square, drink mulled wine and people watch under the heaters and blankets for the best evening

Hamley's VR Experience doesn't exactly sound like a cultural attraction but it is amazing, definitely a must do - it is on the bottom floor and there are different types of experiences to choose from

Good to know

The best time to visit Prague is definitely at the end of December, if you are able to plan your trip to involve New Year's Eve then you will have the best experience. Also you will be there when the Christmas markets are still on, which is amazing.

The currency in Prague, Czech Republic is Czech Crowns.

Temperatures can really fluctuate in the winter so bring thermals.

Prague is not as cheap as often people make out, in certain places the beer is cheap but I have found that restaurants, souvenirs and getting around is not cheap by any means.

The cheapest way to get too and from the airport is the bus or the train which have direct links, however the easiest way would be taxi.

The Bernard beer spa is quite expensive, we paid around £120 for an hour (I would never normally spend this much on an experience) but it is definitely a must do attraction. Make sure you pay a little bit extra for a private room, it is definitely worth it.
