With its photogenic medieval core, the past is never far away in the Czech capital. While the city does a ine line in historic hotels, it’s rich in modern digs too, from techy hostels to a room in an old TV tower. Words: Hannah Summers

For a big chunk of the Noughties, Prague was a favourite among raucous stag parties, who’d come for the budget booze and bunk beds. Today, though, they’ve mostly migrated elsewhere, and while you’ll still ind reasonably priced lagers, there’s much more to the Czech capital. Perhaps you’ll visit for the history, from the 9th-century castle to the cobbled alleys dotted with baroque churches and neoclassical townhouses. Or maybe to explore the outer neighbourhoods — including the edgy, club- and gallery-lined streets of Holesovice — connected to the Old Town by the ornate bridges that span the Vltava. Since the fall of the Iron Curtain, Prague has transformed into one of the world’s most enchanting and hedonistic capitals — complete with some of Europe’s smartest hotels.

About National Geographic Traveller (UK)

We reveal the destinations that made our Cool List 2019 — from booming gastronomic hotspots to up-and-coming cities, this is the last word in where you should visit in the year to come. Elsewhere, we explore the wild side of Quebec’s national parks; leave our shoes behind on Colombia’s barefoot Pacific coast; and spend a long weekend in Bornholm. Other highlights this issue include Kuala Lumpur, Richmond, Prague, Marrakech and Taipei while our photo story joins the wild horse herders in Iceland’s rural east.
