Prague

Share

Bohemian to its core and a mecca for both beer lovers and architecture geeks, Prague is steeped in history, yet remains an incredibly modern city. There’s everything from ancient castles to chic bars within the city limits, as well as all the amenities you’d expect from a thriving metropolitan centre. Getting from A to B in the city is a breeze, as it has one of the expansive and reliable public transport networks in Europe, even with the historic centre of the city being a UNESCO World Heritage site.

Sometimes referred to as the heart of Europe, the revolutionary spirit that seems to be a part of the fabric of the city has continued to this day and can be seen in many ways. Although the Czech Republic is quite a progressive country, Prague is on another level and seen as a real bastion of modernity, where radical new ideas are not just discovered, but revered. Whether it be the science of Kepler, the mysticism of Kafka, or the biting satire of Milos Forman, Prague’s unique combination of cultural importance and social freedom have made it a wonderful place to be for centuries, and that remains true today. It’s not only culture vultures and history geeks who will enjoy the city, though: the nightlife is one of the best in Europe, and fans of hearty stews will never want to leave.

Weather

The weather in Prague is exactly what you’d expect: relatively cold winters with some snowfall and a gorgeous mid-twenties heat over the summer, sometimes edging up beyond thirty. Spring and summer can see some heavy rainfall and thunderstorms, but in general a T-shirt and shorts is fine for the day, with a light jacket at night. The city can be windy due to its placement on a river, but it’s not quite as bad as other famously windy cities like Wellington or Chicago.

More of the Mexico

Whether you’re island hopping or plumping for the mainland, Greece is a solid summer holiday all-rounder. Yes, you’ll find all the essentials: beaches, coves, caves and those ever-alluring fishing villages, but Greece will also treat you to some seriously impressive archaeological treasures. Menus may have had a tendency towards the ever-present Greek salad and souvlaki, but the gastronomy scene has always been quietly simmering away in tavernas for decades. Finding them is half the fun.
