The city is having an exceptionally successful year as a destination. The latest statistics demonstrate growing interest in the city in the leisure, business and MICE segments, with an ever-diversifying portfolio of source countries. Prague, one of the continent’s most beautiful and historic capitals, offers a quintessentially European experience of breathtaking architecture with a wide array of cultural offerings, a vibrant and diverse dining scene and trendy new neighbourhoods offering a contemporary contrast to the historic city centre.




The strongest growth has been recorded in visits from Asia, notably from China, South Korea, and India, as well as from Turkey and Israel. Prague’s strongest source markets in 2015 are Germany, the United States, and the United Kingdom.




Prague’s popularity isn’t reflected just in arrival figures. According to the world’s largest travel portal, TripAdvisor, Prague has defended its position as TripAdvisor’s top-rated European destination for the second year in a row, placing fifth in the world. TripAdvisor’s unique ratings formula includes aspects such as historical and cultural heritage, along with a wide array of tourism services and activities.





Prague attracts more than leisure travellers – the numbers of conference and convention attendees flocking to the city are growing, as well. Prague is the Czech Republic’s most important congress destination, hosting up to 80% MICE events held in the country. Among MICE destinations, it has placed ninth in Europe and regularly scores among top MICE destinations in central and southeastern Europe.
