Ryanair Launching Two New Routes from Prague

The budget airline Ryanair is planning to increase its number of routes from Prague by two next year, adding the Polish city of Gdańsk and the Greek island of Skiathos in 2023.

The Prague-Gdansk flight will start on 29 March. It will operate twice a week, on Wednesdays and Saturdays. The city is located on the shores of the Baltic Sea, and its historic centre is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Tickets are on sale now. Round-trip fares start at 2,800 crowns for a standard round-trip flight.

Ryanair will launch its seasonal flight to Skiathos Island at the start of the holiday season on June 2. It will also operate twice a week – on Tuesdays and Fridays. Tickets for this destination are not yet available for sale.

About Gdańsk and what to visit

Located on the northern coast of Poland, almost 600km from Kraków, Gdańsk is famous for its shipyards and historical connections to water. It is here that the Vistula river merges with the Baltic.

  • Somewhat similar to Kraków’s Market Square, Długi Targ (Long Market) is flanked by beautiful, historical houses, each with a story attached. Here you’ll find the Historical Museum of Gdańsk in the town hall, which also contains a tower for views across the city.
  • Nearby, you’ll find St. Mary’s. Often cited as the largest brick church in the world, it is big enough to hold 25,000 people! Dating to the 14th century, the 78m tower can be seen from everywhere.
  • Opened in 2016, the National Museum of WWII is one of the city’s most popular attractions. As with many of Poland’s newest exhibition spaces, the building itself is impressive and the scale inside is sometimes breathtaking. Set aside a whole afternoon.
  • The red rust exterior of the European Solidarity Centre is another grand feat of architecture. A handy adjunct to the National Museum of WWII, this tells the story of Gdańsk’s post-war fight for freedom. Again, the scale is impressive.

About Skiathos and what to visit

Skiathos is the most popular of the Sporades, the islands to the east of Volos and north of Evia. It has much to offer people of all ages and nationalities most of whom find themselves returning year after year. The island is actually the extension of the wooded Mount Pelion and the scenery reflects this.

The town of Skiathos is the island’s soul, with the white two-storey houses with the tiled roofs and the small blooming gardens that give a majestic feel to the island.

The promenade and the port are filled with taverns, cafés and bars; on Papadiamantis street, the high street, you’ll find shops and traditional coffee shops ideal to sit and watch people go by.

Afterall, Skiathos is known for its water sports.
