Dreaming of an autumn break in Europe? A gorgeous capital city has been crowned the safest destination for retired British tourists.
A new study from the travel experts at Planet Cruise looked at the safest destinations around the world for British tourists. While Tokyo took the top spot, a European capital was second on the list.
Prague, the capital of Czechia, was named the safest destination for solo British tourists in Europe. It has a low crime rate and it’s far more affordable than Tokyo.
Known as “The City of 100 Towers”, Prague is home to the largest castle in the world. The whopping site covers 70,000 square metres of land.
So what’s there to do in Prague?

Prague’s top attraction and the landmark Britons are most likely to spy in travel brochures, is the city’s Charles Bridge. The medieval stone arch bridge stretches across the Vltava river in central Prague.
‘Janis F’ wrote on Tripadvisor: “Perfect place. As if something out of a painting, the bridge is truly a monument. Perfect place for a nice evening stroll!”
‘Robyn and John’ wrote: “Ancient old bridge. This place has a really romantic feel about it in the evenings with the lights in the background and all the couples strolling.”
