Prague (also locally known as Praha), the capital of the Czech Republic, is a “never off-season” destination.

Prague stands out as one of the few cities in Europe that emerged from WWII with its medieval old town almost entirely intact. From its cobbled streets and medieval architecture to its friendly, welcoming citizens to its vibrant Vegas-style night life, Prague is an increasingly popular travel incentive destination.

Local hotels can accommodate over 90,000 people in more than 42,000 rooms. The Prague Congress Centre can host meetings for more than 9,000 delegates. The Prague Convention Bureau offers immense support in planning a MICE event.

ITINERARY

Here's a quick guide to planning a 2-3 day trip for a group tour
or travel incentive for employees, dealers, distributors or doctors.

DAY 1

Prague is not a very large city and can be explored on foot. That's probably why there are so many walking or segway tours. We start our tour of the city with the Prague tourist triad (Prague Castle , Charles Bridge, Old Town Square). The castle complex comprises of the Royal Palace, the Monastery and St. Vitus Cathedral.

Then, walk the Royal Route, except in reverse! The original route follows the traditional coronation route of Bohemian kings, passing through the Old Town, across the Charles Bridge to the Lesser Quarter, and then a long hike up to the Castle. The trek in reverse is much easier as we'd be walking downhill and against the thronging crowds of tourists.

Stop by the medieval astronomical clock on the side of Old Town City Hall. The hourly spectacle, referred to as the 'Walk of the Apostles' features some figures moving around, a rooster call and a dancing skeleton. Prague’s Old Town (Staré Město) and Lesser Town (Malá Strana) often steal the Prague tourist show.
After a hearty lunch at one of the many Indian restaurants, take the funicular railway (or tram) up to Petrin Hill.

Besides admiring the magnificent view over Prague, you can also take a look at the Astronomical Observatory , or climb the Lookout Tower and right next to it is the well-known Maze – a hall of mirrors in the Czech Hikers´ Pavilion and the Church of St. Michael — a 17th century wooden building relocated here from a village in the Ukraine.

 
A great place to go, after dark, is Wenceslas Square. It is the entertainment and nightlife centre of Prague, and the main shopping and commercial district begins here.

Wenceslas Square is really a boulevard, measuring 750m long by 60m wide. It was originally laid out as the Prague horse market 650 years ago. At the top of Wenceslas Square is the National Museum, and just off to the left is the Prague State Opera.

Alternatively, head over to Karlova Street in the Old Town for some good old souvenir shopping. Prague is one of the best European cities to indulge in some designer shopping. Prices here are relatively cheaper than elsewhere in Europe.

DAY 2

Or, you could drive a Russian Tank.

This is a unique team building activity, about 35 kms. outside Prague, at a former military base, Milovice. There are many activities such as paintball, shooting range, etc. The camp is focused on team communication and co-operation. The real action begins with the bus attack and kidnapping to the wasteland where they have to build a camp. The group accomplishes tactic tasks in the middle of raging battle and defend themselves under the leadership of professional soldiers against enemies.

If you have a gala dinner or an awards ceremony planned,

our recommendation would be to host it on one of the special event boats on the river Vltava. The city lights would form an awesome backdrop. These are full service event boats with varying capacities, complete with technical equipment such as lighting & sound gear and AV systems. There are a wide variety of locally available entertainment options as well.
