Day 1 - UK to Prague
Prague is a beautiful city, boasting a maze of cobbled lanes to explore, a magnificent castle and, some would say, the best beer in the world! Meet your travelling companions at the airport before your flight. At your hotel, in the heart of the city, get to know each other better over a drink before dinner this evening.
Day 2 - Christmas Eve - Prague
Prague is known as the ‘Golden City’, and few visitors could fail to be impressed by the immense architecture, rich history, and fascinating traditions that abound here. Its compact centre is easy to explore on foot, and that’s what we’ll do this morning. Sights you’ll see include Wenceslas Square, the National Museum, Old Town Square, the Jewish Quarter and the 14th century Charles Bridge. Spend the afternoon at leisure – perhaps try a Czech beer or two.
Day 3 - CHhristmas Day - Kutna Hora
It’s Christmas Day and we’ve organised an excursion to the UNESCO-listed town of Kutna Hora, with an included lunch. On our tour we’ll see its remarkable ossuary – a cemetery chapel decorated with bones. We’ll also visit the gothic St Barbara’s Cathedral – one of the most spectacular in the country. Other historic sites include the town’s old silver mines – its origins are embedded in the mining of this precious metal. This evening, we gather to enjoy a Prague Czech Beer Party with dinner, Czech beer and music.
Day 4 - Boxing Day - Prague
You have the opportunity to spend a day exploring Prague at your leisure today but if you’d like to see more in the company of your Tour Manager, we also offer an optional morning visit to Karlstejn Castle. Built by Charles IV from 1348 to 1357, its role was to protect the crown jewels of the Holy Roman Empire and it’s one of the Czech Republic’s most famous sights.
Day 5 - Prague
There’s more time to do your own thing today. Your hotel is close to the National Memorial at Vitkov, and just a short walk from the Old Town and Wenceslas Square. Back at your hotel, there’s a farewell get-together this evening with your travelling companions.
Day 6 - Prague to UK
Today you’ll transfer to the airport for your flight to the UK.
