In a place where every bar boasts the “perfect pint,” it won’t be hard to drink your fill of Guinness or whatever your poison may be. In a warm and friendly atmosphere, why not gorge your senses on a plethora of traditional Irish songs and dances on offer. Don’t worry about language barriers. After two or three pints, you will easily start up a conversation with anyone! Even if that entails inventing your own form of sign language.
With a shared Celtic history, a love of pubs, beer and music, St. Patrick’s Day seems to have “Czech” written all over … no matter if you are Czech, Irish, or neither; there’s some way in Prague for you to celebrate this Irish holiday.
