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.
