A trip to Prague

 For those interested in the sights, sounds and smells of Eastern Europe, a trip to Prague, capital of the Czech Republic, is essential.

Wenceslas Square is the main area of Prague for shopping, drinking, eating and socialising, and is packed with vibrant hotels, A trip to Praguebars, nightclubs and restaurants, and is where tourists and locals both flock to for an evening out.
