Published on July 25, 2019

Last year, the Czech Republic celebrated its 100th birthday, and Prague — the country's capital city — was named one of 2018's top destinations by the New York Times.

Bisected by the Vltava River, “the City of a Hundred Spires" is known for its Old Town Square, colorful baroque buildings, Gothic churches and its medieval Astronomical Clock, which gives an animated hourly show. Besides the stunning architecture, there are also enough local libations and delightful dishes to appease any traveler.

Thankfully, there are plenty of regular, relatively inexpensive flights between Las Vegas and Prague. We pulled from travel site Skyscanner to provide you with a short list of flights and hotels handpicked with the trendy adventurer in mind.

"This used to be a popular meeting place for poets, writers and anti-Communist dissidents in the '70s and '80s ... the menu today is a little eclectic but their traditional Czech desserts are great," wrote reviewer Clare.  

Featured local attractions

To round out your trip, Prague offers plenty of popular attractions worth visiting. Here are some top recommendations, based on Skyscanner's descriptions and reviews.

The Charles Bridge (Karlův most)

First up is The Charles Bridge, with 4.7 stars from 238 reviews.

Joining the Lesser Side with Old Town, the Charles Bridge is the best spot for viewing the Prague Castle. Thousands of people traverse this cobbled bridge every year.

Prague Castle (Prague 11908)

The Prague Castle is another popular destination, with 4.7 stars from 184 reviews.

Perhaps the most beautiful sight east of Paris, Prague Castle was the original seat of power in Bohemia, the home of Czech royalty. The former royal compound is actually a series of castles, with a cathedral and several gardens and plazas at the center.  

Old Town Square (Staroměstské nám.)

Finally, consider checking out the Old Town Square. It checks in with 4.6 stars from 206 reviews on Skyscanner. 

Aptly named for its location in the Old Town quarter of Prague, Old Town Square is the oldest and most populated square in this historic city. The square is closed to traffic and features many restaurants, bars and cafes.
