Clothing

What to bring and wear

Casual clothing should suit most occasions. In summer, take lightweight clothing but be prepared for showers and bring a warm layer in case it’s cool in the evenings. In spring and autumn, a coat or thick jacket is advisable. In winter, take a coat, hat and gloves. Because Prague’s weather is fairly damp and unpredictable; umbrellas, raincoats and windcheaters are needed almost throughout the year to protect yourself from the sudden downpours (but can even be purchased from the many stores once you arrive). Toiletries, medicines and cosmetics are very easily available in Prague.

When attending an opera or play, a classical concert or even for dining in fine restaurant, smart clothing is highly appropriate. Men typically wear a suit and tie, and women an evening dress. Casual dress is considered acceptable at performances of modern music, avant-garde plays and so on.

– Taking a mini umbrella is a good idea!
– Take comfortable shoes as you will do a lot of walking, and since many streets are cobbled it can be tough on your tootsies.

  1. Hi we would be travelling to Prague on the 17th to the 20th of April. What kind of clothing should we carry along?

  2. We will be in Prague from 9th. to 13th. December 2010 and we were hoping to travel with hand luggage only. Should we take heavier extra outdoor clothing?

  3. I’ve always found that dressing properly is a gracious way to fit in when visiting Europe. How do the women of Prague dress? Are long sleeves or hats expected in churches?

    • Yes, long sleeves are expected. But you should not were hats when entering church.

    • Are you serious, have you seen the way thousands of tourists that enter the churches every minute wear? The local woman wear very professional (power dress). those that do attend church, not for taking photos, dress normally as any everyday receptionist at a school. no worries here…
