Join VICTA this December as we travel to the breath-taking city of Prague, in the Czech Republic.

Known as the ‘City of a Hundred Spires’ the streets of Prague offer centuries of historical architecture including the world’s oldest working astronomical clock and the world’s largest castle complex. The famous Charles Bridge is uniquely adorned with 30 statues, each dedicated to a different saint and Czech writer Franz Kafka.

Visiting in December will provide us with the perfect opportunity to explore the traditional Christmas markets located in the vibrant Old Town Square. There will be plenty of rich tastes and smells for us to indulge in! A visit wouldn’t be complete without heading to the bustling commercial centre of Prague, Wenceslas Square.
