A Romantic City Break in Prague

Thinking about whisking a loved one away for the weekend? Or just having a nice weekend to yourself? A definite must see is Prague. There is so much culture and buzz that is a great city to spend a weekend. If you choose to visit Prague, you must hire a car as it is a great way to see the city.

The cheaper hotels are outside the city, so you can drive into the city at any time. A great place to visit is the Old Town Square which has many quirky shops as well as newer ones such as Starbucks. Right in the middle of the square is the Astronomical Clock which dates back to 1410 and has been added to ever since by many astronomers and mathematicians. It’s great to see, grab a coffee across the road and get back to the clock in time to see the show at 12pm on the dot. After the show walk into the square and just sit for a while near the flowers, admiring the old buildings that surround you. You might even find some quirky statues if you have a keen eye.

It’s great to just spend some time wandering around some of the alley ways, you will find some great restaurants and pubs that offer a great lunch that isn’t too expensive, and do great beers too if you just want to relax for a bit. The next stop is the new town. Well, if you going to visit the old, you have to go and see the new as well! This will be south of the old town and has shops, restaurants, pubs and all sorts for you to see. Again, try and explore the little alley ways and you will find some great unique shops, and wonderful coffee shops.

The Euro is accepted in some hotels and restaurants, along with certain international shops. However, we recommend holding Czech Crowns, as the majority of establishments will only accept the local currency.

The second main sight to see is Charles Bridge. During the day expect it to be very busy with lots of people, artists selling their photos and paintings and many statues for you to admire. About half way along the bridge there will be steps down to a small square. If you can find your way around, there are some great cafe’s and pubs for you to have some lunch.

Prague City Guide

The beautiful city of Prague is situated along the Vltava River in central Bohemia. Prague is the largest city and also the capital of the Czech Republic. The foundation of Prague dates back to the Paleolithic Age. The city was founded by Princess Libu’e and Premysl, her husband and founder of the Premysl Dynasty. This city became the seat of Kings of Bohemia and an important place for trading. Prague has a number of nicknames, such as City of a Hundred Spires, The Golden City, The Left Bank of the Nineties, The Mother of Cities, and The Heart of Europe.

Prague is connected to many important world cities by several direct flights that are not too costly. Ruzyn is its international airport and is located in the west of Prague. Prague is also connected by rail and has two international train stations. Eurocity trains connect Prague to Berlin, Vienna, and Budapest. Tourists can also use the bus to reach Prague which has highway connections from all directions. Accommodations are available to suit most budgets.

Prague has turned into a popular tourist destination after the fall of the Iron Curtain. Since Prague was one of the few European cities comparatively untouched during the World Wars, most of its historic architecture has been preserved. Tourists flock to visit its ancient buildings and murals. A varied collection of architectural forms from Art Nouveau to Baroque, Renaissance, Cubist, Gothic, Neo-Classical, and ultra-modern can be seen.

Tourists can visit all the places of interest by taking walking tours, bus tours, or boat tours. A number of companies offer interesting walking tours of Prague. Some walking tours may have themes such as ghosts, Kafka, and legends. A two hour boat tour on the Vltava River takes tourists past the Prague Castle District and Lesser Town. The Prague by Night tour is three hours long and tourists can enjoy onboard dining and cruising. It is followed by a one-hour coach trip to Prague’s most beautiful squares. Nightlife in Prague is quite active and entertaining.

Spring is the best time to visit Prague when temperatures are 8-14°C/46-57°F. April and beginning of May are also conducive when the temperatures reach 15-25°C/59-77°F.

Since 1992, historic centers of Prague have been included in the UNESCO list of heritage structures.

Top 6 Spas in Europe for 2010

If your idea of having the perfect getaway is touring the best spas all over Europe, youre not alone. But how can you visit all of them with so little time? Europe is practically crawling with the excellent spas these days. But because we want you to have the most relaxing spa get away ever, weve come up with a comprehensive list of all the best ones.

Augustine Spa in Prague

Top 6 Spas in Europe for 2010

The Augustine Spa in Prague, Czech Republic, is a four-room spa and salon which takes residence in the Augustine monastery. While its tucked in the Gothic pillars of the building, its also an exceptional first-class spa redesigned by the master hotelier of U.K Rocco Forte.

The spa itself is a bit minimalist, sporting whitewashed walls, arched ceilings which are about a century old, and architecture that generally emanates the old world. The Augustine Spa draws a fine clientele of nobles from Central Europe, Hollywood celebrities, and even local moguls of real estate.

The spas best treatment is the 90-minute beer-based body rub. Have this with a full body massage and youll be rubbing all of your stress away. Other treatments include natural products made from Ila and Anika. The Augustine Spas director Dita Coufalova can also surprise you. Despite her diminutive size, she has the strongest pair of hands in Bohemia.

Aman Spa in Connaught, England

Top 6 Spas in Europe for 2010

Undeniably the best spa in London, England, you should not miss out on the Aman Spa at the Connaught. The spa has a total of five treatment rooms (one designed for couples), a gym, a pool with seductive dark tiles, and minimalist architecture by Jaya Patromo Ibrahim.

Combining the styling principles of Asia and England, Ibrahim used dove-gray Portland stones and pale, honey-tinged oak for the interior. The effect: a very spacious spa which is both luxurious and relaxing. If this isnt zen enough for you, we dont know what is.

The spa draws a classy, understated clientele, especially on weekends. We recommend their one-hour full body massage which includes a heavenly foot massage, submerged crystal treatment, and a head massage you wont have anywhere else.

The only downside here is that the pool cant be accessed by spa customers unless youre also a guest at the hotel. You can also use the pool if you pay the annual spa membership fee.
