Prague

Call 01242 547 703 to speak to a specialist Enquire


Home to about 1.2million people, this magical city of bridges, cathedrals, gold-tipped towers and church domes, has been mirrored in the surface of the swan-filled Vltava River for more than ten centuries.

Almost undamaged by World War II, Prague's compact medieval centre remains a wonderful mixture of cobbled lanes, walled courtyards, cathedrals and countless church spires all in the shadow of her majestic 9th century castle that looks eastward as the sun sets behind her.

Prague is also a modern and vibrant city full of energy, music, cultural art, fine dining and special events catering to the independent traveller's thirst for adventure.  It is regarded by many as one of Europe's most charming and beautiful cities, and in 1992 its historic centre was inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List.

Guest Testimonial

I arrived with the sun blazing down and the clouds and mist lifting from Machu Picchu. It was a truly magical moment. And then there was Percy, my guide. What a delightful, interesting, knowledgeable and expert guide. It really was a pleasure to be with him. I really couldn't have asked for a better guide and team. This was one of the best treks I have ever done.

Robin Spanner caused me to tell all my friends that if they ever consider going to Africa they would be crazy if they don't use Abercrombie and Kent. Robin made the experience of booking fun and easy and you have an extremely capable employee in him.
