While all times of the year are beautiful, we recommend going in late spring or early fall to experience the nice weather but lesser crowds. May can be very popular as the Prague Spring Festivals takes place so if you are looking to go in May, make sure to book early! In December you can experience the magical Christmas markets on a winter getaway.
Looking out over Prague at the castle-tops, towers tipped with gold and hundreds of spindly spires – it feels like looking out over a storybook setting. I found it amazing that I could enjoy time in a modern bar or café, and then step out onto a cobblestoned, winding street and feel the contrast of the modern and the ancient all in just a few moments. I had such a wonderful time coming across the little treasures that Prague had around every corner. While crossing the Charles Bridge I found it just as delightful to look at the baroque statues and old fashioned street lamps as I did peeking at the art vendor’s fare, listening to the musicians and watching the street performers entertain. My number one highlight was visiting the John Lennon Wall, a symbol these days for Love and Peace, there were some nearby buskers playing one of my many favourite Beatles songs which perfected the experience.
