Prague Apartments: Prague, lovingly dubbed "little mother Prague" by the locals here, is a stunning city where you can stroll ancient cobbled streets, explore a millennium-old castle, or while away the day in trendy caf?s. If you're headed to Prague, the apartments for rent on www.selfcaterinhols.com offer great options for your holiday accommodations, whether you're looking for a small flat for two or a spacious family-friendly apartment in Prague. Apartments are central and modern, and all Prague apartments are available for flexible, short-term rental.

Prague straddles the Vltava River, the Czech Republic's longest, and both riverbanks hold fascinating sites. Major must-see historical districts in Prague include the Castle District (Hradĉany), the former Jewish ghetto (Josefov), the medieval Little Quarter (Mal? Strana), the gothic Old Town (Star? M?sto), and the 14th-century New Town (Nov? M?sto). These five historical districts form the core of Prague, and apartments in this area will put you within easy walking distance to many major attractions. Be sure to spend time in the old town square (Staromestske namesti), where you can see the town hall, the Gothic cathedral and the Baroque Church of St- Nicholas. Another must is Prague castle, where you can stroll the lovely castle gardens, founded in 1534. The busy Wenceslas Square (Vaclavske Namesti), the Old Jewish Cemetery, the 12th-century Strahov Monastery in the Castle District and the garden-like Petrin, where you can climb the Petrin Tower for great city views, are other worthwhile stops in Prague.

The apartments for rent in the city are central and well-communicated with the city centre. You'll have easy access to Prague's extensive metro system and to important sights like the Prague castle and Petrin.

Since emerging from the dark cloak of communism, Prague has become one of the most popular city break destinations in Europe. Affordable apartments, food and nightlife have made this ancient city even more appealing to both foreign visitors and young Czechs. The centre of Prague has an exciting caf? culture and is bubbling with activity day and night.

It should be no surprise that Prague has the continental climate common to much of central Europe. Summers are pleasant, with highs in the low 20s (?C) and an average temperature of 17?C. Summer is the high season in Prague, and all the attractions, caf?s and restaurants are open. Winters are beautiful as well, especially when snow blankets the city. November through March (except for Christmas and the New Year) there are few visitors. This is a peaceful, if cold, time to visit Prague. Winter lows dip well below 0?C and the average temperature is -1?C.

Monthly average temperatures in Prague are: Jan -1?C, Feb -1?C, Mar 3?C, Apr 7?C, May 12?C, Jun 15?C, Jul 17 ?C, Aug 17?C, Sep 13?C, Oct 8?C, Nov 2?C, Dec 0?C.

Prague's international airport, Ruzyně, is 10km northwest of central Prague, and it is the only major airport of the Czech Republic. Many major airlines, including British Airways and Czech Airlines, fly here. Flight time from London is about two hours.

Prague also enjoys excellent (and inexpensive) train and bus services. Czech Railways operates efficient services between Prague and all important Czech towns and cities, and there are also regular international services between Prague and cities like Paris and Amsterdam. Bus services, which tend to be even cheaper, are good too.

Once in Prague, plan to walk a lot, though you can also use the city's well-organized public transportation system to get where you're going. Taxis are notorious for ripping off tourists; if you plan to travel in a taxi, have your hotel or restaurant call one for you.

The main activity in Prague is strolling its twisted, ancient streets and soaking up the millennia of culture that infuses the city. A few hours spent relaxing in a sidewalk caf? sampling the local beers, an evening out trying one of Prague's excellent restaurants, and a night of bar hopping will probably take up the rest of your time.

Enjoy Prague's great outdoors with a stroll through Petrin, a central park, or a cruise down the Vltava River, which cuts through the heart of the city.

In the outskirts of Prague you can also find activities like white water rafting, quad biking and even paintball.
