Why You Need to Visit Prague in Spring

Why You Need to Visit Prague in Spring

There's something almost magical about Europe in the Spring. The weather in Prague gets warmer and the festivities welcoming the new season begin! Statistically speaking, the last week of July through the middle of August is the busiest time for tourism in the Czech Republic, especially for the capital. So, we wrote a list about all the things people are missing out before high season starts. Here's why you need to visit Prague in spring:


Low/Shoulder Season




There are plenty of advantages when it comes to visiting the Czech capital pre-Summer: beat the heat, crowds and high season costs while getting to know Prague in its truest colours. Line-ups for every museum and attraction are guaranteed, so why not save time and money with low season tickets while enjoying this charming city without the tourists. And besides wandering the halls of museums and satisfying your hunger at local cafes, take a free walking tour in Prague for a great overview of the city. You'll also score some amazing bus deals for 7 Euros or less to Germany, Austria and smaller Czech towns if you have the time for fantastic day trips.


Prague Spring 71st International Music Festival

May 12th-June 4th



Get the chance to experience Prague's largest music festival celebrating music, freedom and multiculturalism, in honour of Prague Spring 1968. It lasts just over 3 weeks with classical performances by musicians, composers, and 98 orchestras from around the world! Whether you're a fan of traditional or experimental classical music (or just curious!), Prague Spring International Music Festival is worth checking out not only for the music, but also the venues the concerts will be hosted in like 19th-century Rudolfinum and Municipal House.
