The atmosphere of a beautiful blossom garden should be felt by Prague’s visitors when strolling around Old Town Square and Wenceslas Square. There are about 90 Easter market stalls on Old Town Square and 60 on Wenceslas Square, as well as other food stalls. During the Easter holidays there is a programme scheduled for every day (for example there will be an oyster-opening competition and a rabbit race). There will also be a workshop for children, providing the youngest ones the possibility to braid switches into so-called “pomlázky” (birch rods) and to dye eggs. Daily cultural street events will be held, usually from 4pm.
Markets are a great place not only to taste delicious Czech sausages, jacket potatoes, crepes, sweets, trdelnik (leavened dough, sugar, almonds and nuts baked on a rolling wheel) but also to buy some souvenirs, Easter eggs, puppets, ceramic and glass etc.
The markets will be there until 11th April, and on that day there will be a folk orchestra performance. Market stalls are open daily from 9am till 7pm, and during the weekends until 8pm.
