1. Prague, Czech Republic

With its medieval towns, thriving culture and incredible beer scene, its little surprise that Prague has steadily become one of the most popular destinations in Europe. Its great weather, paired with inconceivably cheap prices (grab a pint of beer for little more than a £1) make it a dream budget holiday destination in the summer months. During August, the already bustling city receives an extra boost of life as several festivals kick off.

Between the 5th and 11th of the month, rainbow flags fill the streets to celebrate Prague Pride. This is a whole week of celebrations and LGBTQ events, with the main parade on Saturday 10th. Then, from the 15th of August, the city hosts Letni Letna, a summer circus festival that takes place in the beautiful Letna Park. The festival begins with a parade that trails through the scenic old town and is an opportunity to enjoy performers, circus acts, workshops and shows, many of which are free.
