Prague is climbing in popularity, apparently
Can't make up your mind where to book your next holiday? Let me help you decide by allowing me to convince you to spend your accommodation budget on a hostel in Prague.

According to price comparison website Cheapflights.co.uk, the country is rising in popularity among keen travelers, registering a 62 per cent increase in the amount of searches carried out on the internet as to what it has to offer the keen voyager.

The eastern European destination has, the web page noted, been a prominent feature on the list of places to go for the last ten years but it also predicted that Prague will be engendering a lot more interest in 2010. This, it was observed, is in part because staying there is just so very cheap, with Prague hostels costing from as little as £20, while beer - the sampling of which should always be included on travel agendas - can be bought for 70p.

"Not a bad deal at all for a chance to hop on a tour of the magical Prague Castle," the publication stated.

And if you're wondering when you should actually book your holiday in Prague for, consider doing so around the month of May. This is when the 65th Prague Spring international music festival is taking place and organisers have already announced that the Prague Philharmonia will be starting proceedings off on May 12th. The Prague Daily Monitor recently noted that a performance of Smetana's My Country song cycle is going to be put on, led by 28-year-old chief conductor Jakub Hrusa.
