Prague in April: our tips

April marks the beginning of spring and the prospect of sunny escapades!

In Prague, temperatures are beginning to ease slightly and locals are swapping their coats for lighter jackets.

This is also the time when many small, hidden gardens reopen to the public after being closed all winter. You can discover charming parks and gardens in the heart of the picturesque Malá Strana district, such as the Wallenstein garden or the wonderful terraced gardens beneath the Castle.

Easter markets in Prague

Starting in the second week of April, the Easter markets bring life to the capital’s three largest squares: Old Town Square, Wenceslas Square and Republic Square. There will be plenty of stalls where you can buy traditional souvenirs, such as pretty hand-painted Easter eggs, enjoy cultural events and craft demonstrations, or try a traditional lamb-shaped bun covered in meringue, known as “beránek”.

Guided tours

The generally mild temperatures of April are ideal for strolling through the streets of Prague and enjoying its cultural heritage.
