Prague, Czech Republic: gateway to Eastern Europe
Flights to Prague are numerous because travellers can’t get enough of this city in the heart of Europe! A hub of political, artistic and cultural activity throughout its 1,000 plus years of history, downtown Prague earned a spot on the list of UNESCO world heritage sites in 1992.

Things to do in Prague
Nestled between other European countries, the Czech Republic is home to a rich assortment of treasures. When in Prague, whether on foot, by bike or by bus, travellers can explore enchanting castles and chapels, towers and bell towers, as well as the charming Charles Bridge and the legendary Dancing House.
Once the must-sees are crossed off the list, Prague is a perfect place for getting lost. An aimless stroll will take travellers past the strange and beautiful street sculptures of David Černý, quaint cafés tucked away from the crowds and bars serving tasty local beers.
