Kafkaesque holiday, anyone?

Category: Reviews

Prague, home to one of the greatest writers of all time – surrealist Franz Kafka – is a city that, in a way, can provide a melancholic twist to your typical holiday.

Rooted in history and culture, Prague is a city that is rich in charm and beauty with no shortage of landmarks to visit: the Prague Castle, which dates back to the 9th century; the famous Charles Bridge, which was built from 1357 to the 15th century; the Old Town Square, which highlights the city’s gothic and baroque architecture in the Týn Church and St. Nicholas Church; and the Jewish ghetto, among others.

Indeed, it may be said that Prague shaped Kafka in a way that cast his influence on the existential question about one’s reason for being. And to honour the city’s literary son, Prague has opened the Franz Kafka Museum for those who would prefer to experience his life and work through an exhibition that explores the intimate relationship between the writer and the city that gave him a reason for existence.

Prague is a trip planner’s paradise. The city is filled with accommodation choices for those on adventure holidays, among them Corinthia Hotel, which invites guests from the Middle East to make the most of their stay in one of Europe’s most resplendent cities.

Corinthia Hotel, one of the best hotels in the world, offers an exclusive package, “Best of Prague,” which is filled with fun activities designed for vacationers on adventure holidays.

The hotel has arranged complimentary tickets for a selection of the city’s top attractions so guests can become their own trip planners and have a chance to see a different side of the city each day. Leisure seekers and lovers of fun activities have an array of attractions to choose from, ranging from the Old Town Hall, one of the most striking buildings in the city; or the Zizkov Tower, a monument of Prague’s communist architecture, where one can climb to the top of the tower and experience stunning views across the old town square and the city.

Corinthia Hotel Prague, popular among those who have stayed in the best hotels in the world, has also ensured to cater for the wishes of the less adventurous, looking to enjoy the history and culture found in the museums of the city. Guests can choose to visit the Alfons Mucha Museum where they can immerse themselves in the life and work of one of Art Nouveau’s most celebrated artists whose stylistic legacy is still visible in his native Czech Republic today. Tickets will also be available to visit the Franz Kafka Museum for those who would prefer to experience the life and work of Prague’s most famous literary son through an exhibition that explores the intimate relationship between the writer and the city that shaped him.

Following the tour of the city, guests can relax and unwind at the hotel’s luxurious spa while admiring the stunning views that come with its lofty 26th floor positioning.
