Showcasing the lavish Carlo IV Wellness & Spa – with one of the largest indoor pools in Prague alongside a Turkish bath, whirlpools and a sauna – and an array of high-end dining venues and sleek bars and lounges, your expectations will be exceeded.

The Experiences – Charming streets steeped in history await

The Czech Republic’s fascinating capital is home to the largest castle complex in the world and is a vibrant treasure trove of history, culture and of course, delicious food.

A local guide will help you explore the Prague Castle complex, the city’s most significant monument. The castle dates back to the 9th century and has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage site, housing stunning buildings within the complex such as the ornate Old Royal Palace, the magnificent St. Vitus Cathedral and the lush green Royal Garden.

Experience a fascinating folklore dinner introducing you to traditional Czech entertainment and a three-course menu of local delicacies served with free-flow beverages.

Your final captivating day will have you exploring the ‘City of a Hundred Spires’ at your leisure. Visit the abundance of museums and galleries, stroll along Parizska Street - the city's famous shopping district - wander along the banks of the Vltava River. Uncover the picturesque Lesser Town and stroll amongst a backdrop of towering, medieval spires. This evening is the perfect chance to try traditional Czech cuisine at a local restaurant, but don’t forget to sample Prague's national treasure - its world-renowned beer.
