Prague is perfect for Christmas purchases
I apologise right here and now if you're getting a bit sick of my incessant Christmas blogging but I just can't help myself. For whatever reason, I'm suddenly filled with yuletide cheer - I've even started decorating my house which, I know, is bad luck and you're supposed to wait until December 1st but I couldn't hold out any longer. So I've decided that it's only right, given how Christmassy I'm feeling, to spread a little love and happiness around. Here's the news - anyone staying in a hostel in Prague over the next few weeks will be pleased to know that it's an ideal place to be if Christmas shopping is on the agenda.

I've been reading up and World-first.co.uk has quoted Czech Tourism as recommending the city as it's not only an interesting place to go, with lots to see and do, but also offers bargain hunters the chance to save some hard-earned cash. If you've never been to the area before and are a bit scared to venture outside your Prague hostel, no fear. The good people at the tourism department have suggested that you head straight to Parizska, which is home to streets lined with designer boutiques.

And, just in case you needed a little extra bit of persuasion, a recent report by Post Office travel services found that Prague offers those eager to find amazing value for money the best opportunity for this, proving to be the most cost-effective of all the former Eastern bloc countries. Here, you can get your loved ones great gifts like cameras and perfume nine per cent cheaper than you can in Paris. Result!
