10 Weekend Trips from Prague

Prague may not have a seacoast or great beaches, but the great thing is that it's completely central in Europe! This makes it really easy to take short trips or weekend trips from Prague.

With flexible transport available from the main bus station (Florenc) and the central train station (Hlavni Nadrazi), travelling is affordable and easy.
