‘I want an atmosphere’ sang comedian Russ Abbot in an 80s pop ‘classic’ that you hoped you’d long forgotten, but that we’ve now cruelly reminded you of (shamefaced).
If only someone had told Russ about Prague, then his quest would have been over. With its impressive medieval architecture, pretty squares and ancient pubs, this is a city that has atmosphere in spades.
And did we mention the magical Christmas markets too?
Soak up the vibe for yourself with today’s Big Deal for a four night, 4-star hotel stay in Prague with return flights included, from October to March.
Czech it out
Today’s Big Deal from myholidaysnow.co.uk is exclusive to 5pm customers. It includes return flights with EasyJet or Ryanair from Edinburgh, plus four nights room only accommodation in the 4-star, centrally based Jurys Inn Prague.
Dates are very flexible as you can travel from October to March. This means that you can make this an enchanted autumn break, a Christmas shopping spree or a special treat for early 2019.
The offer is based on two sharing a standard twin or double room. But if you’d like to turn it into a solo adventure (and why not?), then a single supplement applies.
Magical Christmas markets
During the festive season, Prague opens up like a glittering jewel box with Christmas markets that are famous the world over.
You can stroll around brightly decorated wooden huts strung with fairy lights while shopping for local handicrafts such as scented candles, wooden toys and festive ornaments.
You can also sample traditional Christmas fare like barbecued sausages, hot sugar-coated pastries and pancakes. Wash them alldown with mulled wine, Czech beers or the famous ‘grog’, while enjoying the sound of carol singers in the background.
The main markets are held at Wenceslas Square and the Old Town Square, both a stroll away from each other. This year they run from 1st December 2018 to 6th January 2019, so this deal would be a great chance to experience them.
Return flight dates
You will fly out from Edinburgh International via Easyjet or Ryanair (flights from Glasgow International are also available at a supplement. Please enquire directly when booking). Available departure dates for your trip are:
2nd, 4th, 9th, 11th, 16th, 23rd November
1st, 4th, 6th, 18th, 20th, 25th, 27th January
1st, 3rd, 8th, 10th, 17th, 22nd, 24th February
1st, 3rd, 10th, 17th March
Outbound flights will be between 7am to 8pm. Inbound flights will be between 9am to 6pm. Timings will be confirmed at time of booking.
Stylish modern hotel
The superior deluxe Jurys Inn Hotel Prague is located next to the Florenc metro station around 20 minutes on foot from the Old Town Square.
Spacious, modern décor guestrooms are equipped with LCD TV, air-conditioning, high speed internet, safe, tea and coffee making facilities and ensuite bathrooms.
The offer is for room only, but the relaxed hotel restaurant serves buffet breakfast, and international cuisine a la carte and table d’hote menus if you want to dine in-house.
Hotel amenities include an on-site gym, and bike rental, if you fancy exploring the city on two wheels.
First time visitors to Prague may be in danger of sensory overload from the stunning beauty of Prague’s ornate medieval buildings.
The secret is to take in the distinctive areas of the city in turn, enjoying the splendours of the Old Town, the castle, Wenceslas Square.. The best way to explore is on foot, with the occasional hop on one of the city’s handy trams.
Tourist highlights usually include lingering by the buskers on the Charles Bridge, a visit to the Jewish cemetery and catching the chimes of the astronomical clock in the Old Town Square.
Don’t neglect the beer, superb brews with a rich history, served up in atmospheric cellar bars, or Pivnice, accompanied by simple menus of hearty Middle European fare, usually a variation on meat and dumplings.
The Jurys Inn Hotel Prague has a very high reputation with reviewers on TripAdvisor. Recent reviews include the following:
‘Only a short walk from Old Town and with perfect access to public transit, this hotel has great rooms, is very clean and well maintained, and has the best breakfast I have ever seen in a hotel. Highly recommend!’
‘We found this hotel a pleasant place to stay. Staff friendly & courteous. Tram stop right out the front & also the station opposite. The breakfast is very good with plenty of choices. Would stay again on a return to Prague.’
‘We stayed in this hotel as we thought it would be a great base for our holiday. It’s a fantastic hotel with great accommodation and one of the best buffet breakfasts you could wish for. We’re already thinking about booking again.’
Prague is the ideal couples’ getaway destination, as its streets and bars simply ooze romance.
With return flights from Edinburgh and four nights of superior, central hotel accommodation, this deal is perfect for that intimate break you’ve been promising your significant other.
You could also pair it with a shopping trip to the Christmas markets or alternatively, turn it into a very special birthday gift.
