Welcome to spring in the Czech Republic


The flowers and plants are coming back to life and so are the sights and historic monuments which reopen their gates to visitors from all over the world after the winter. The Easter celebrations from March 30 until April 1 include a series of interesting events which give visitors an extra reason to plan a trip to the Czech Republic during spring.


Prague, the capital city of the Czech Republic, invites visitors to a range of exciting Easter events. The annual Easter markets which take place on three of Prague´s most famous squares – Old Town Square, Wenceslas Square and the Square of the Republic – are the most popular of them all. This year the markets will take place from March 16 until April 17. At Old Town Square there will be more than 90 stands offering traditional Czech products such as beautifully decorated Easter eggs, laces, wooden toys and puppets and various Easter decorations. Every day the markets are visited by 10,000 people looking for some great shopping as well as entertaining cultural programmes. The schedule includes music and dance performances, demonstrations of old arts and crafts, decorating Easter eggs and making candles. Younger visitors will have lots of fun in the children´s workshop in Old Town Square where they can try some of the crafts themselves.


Numerous classical music concerts take place in Prague every day at Easter time and make any trip to the Czech capital even more special. The music of well and less well-known works by Czech and international artists will sound in many of Prague´s most beautiful venues including Klementinum, the Municipal House, the State Opera, the Spanish Synagogue or the Lobkowicz Palace.
