Travel Insurance for Prague
With over a millennia of history to its name, Prague sits as the capital city of the Czech Republic and is widely known as the "city of one hundred spires".
After London, Paris and Rome, Prague is the fourth most visited city in Europe. For a culturally enriching experience from the former centre of Bohemia you'd be a fool for not venturing to this iconic city in eastern Europe. Or, if you're there to sample its world-famous Czech beer† then in our eyes that's a perfectly valid reason too!
Choosing the right policy for you
Like with all European cities, it is still important to take out a travel insurance policy to cover you and to safeguard your holiday in case something happens along the way. While no one wants to be in the position where you have to claim on your policy, it gives you that added peace of mind to know that you have that safety net should you need to use it.
Make sure your Czech city break is protected with a comprehensive and trustworthy insurance policy. Depending on the total cost of your holiday plus the nature of your trip, you can get a great single-trip plan from *

Top tips for visiting Prague
Prague is a vibrant and historical city bursting with sightseeing opportunities and an interesting past. These top tips will help you to make the most of your experience whilst staying safe.
1. Prague Castle
- With large grounds containing historical wonders such as Golden Lane, Prague Castle is a collaboration of many different architectural styles such as Gothic and Renaissance, giving the castle its uniqueness.

- Crowds gather beneath the astronomical clock on the hour, waiting for its intricate display of the twelve apostles, a beautiful artwork from the middle ages.
3. The Strahov Monastery
- If you love books, this 11th-century monastery will fill all your literary needs whilst abroad, with decadent shelve-lined walls and dusty tomes that you could only previously imagine.
4. The Lennon Wall
The John Lennon wall has been used for protest art since 1948, and now displays colourful graffiti in the shape of peace slogans and song lyrics.
5. Kafka Museum
This museum is as strange as its namesake, with interactive exhibitions and collections of Kafka's letter from his turbulent adulthood.
What is the best time to visit Prague?
Although Prague's weather is generally cold, the best time to visit would be either side of the summer, in April-June and September-October as the summer months are extremely crowded, especially in the tourist areas.
