Paris is the perfect destination for a long weekend, no matter whether you are travelling with your partner or best friend. The French capital is not only a shopper’s paradise, but also one of the world’s prime places for sightseeing with the Eiffel Tower, Sacré Coeur and the Louvre, to name just a few. Make a point of visiting Moulin Rouge variety theatre in the district of Montmartre.
However, if you prefer just to enjoy French lifestyle at its best, or “laissez-faire” as the French say, simply order a glass of red wine or a coffee and sit back for some serious people watching around the hotspots of Paris.

Prague is well worth a visit at any time of the year, thanks to its wealth of cultural treasures and not least its culinary delicacies such as dumplings, beer and absinthe. Prague is particularly pleasant in spring, when the first flowers begin to appear and the whole city gradually comes to life again.
No other city is so easy to explore on foot as Prague. Stroll around town and you can visit Prague Castle, Charles Bridge, Prague National Theatre and many other highlights in just one day.
Don’t forget to visit one of the city’s numerous historic cafés. Some of the best coffee houses include Café Savoy, Café Imperial and also Café Louvre, which was frequented by Franz Kafka and Albert Einstein.
