Spring is inspiring time to be in Prague. The weather is picking up, those who are in school usually feel a bit more optimistic about the year coming to a close, and things are just a bit more cheerful. A fairytale city... Sunset on Charles Bridge, the mini Eiffel Tower on Petrin hill at night, Prague chic cafés on the Old Town Square, walks in the flourishing gardens of Prague which makes you enchanted by the dazzling colors of flowers and all those taken away tourists… As spring comes and the weather is getting warmer and warmer, there are so many festivities begin to open and the question comes where to go.
Dyzajn market ( spring edition)
One of the biggest open-air design and art markets in Prague. It is a big event and all the locals wait for it with a sinking heart. This is not an ordinary flea market, it is truly a unique place and if you want to be an owner of a very distinctive treasure that no one else has, then this shall not be missed! Enjoy concerts, workshops and of course delicious street food from local vendors.

Easter markets will hit the town this spring! Head to most main squares in the city where you will find stands decorated with colorful ribbons, birch tree twigs which were used for centuries by boys who go caroling on Easter Monday and symbolically whip girls on the legs; flowers and beautifully painted Easter eggs. Besides enjoying the festive atmosphere and thinking of souvenirs, you can purchase traditional crafts there as well. Do not leave those amazing markets without trying some Czech street food there, it is almost a crime if you just pass by. April is that sweet spot where the weather is getting warmer, but it is also a chance to see Prague before the high season hits with less crowds in town, plus locals usually spend the Easter holiday away with their families.

Here it is… Sophie’s favorite month of the year in Prague! May is an inspiring month full of meanings. The weather stays warm almost all days, more sunshine more walks around Old Town till 2 am, more picturesque sunsets on the riverside and more memorable moments! We start this month with the May Day- Czech Valentine’s Day or another reason to say how much you appreciate your loved ones or you can call it “another reason to visit Prague”. Of course, we do not forget about the Victory Day on the 8th of May, as it is important to remember those dates and honor the memory of those who were there. To brighten up your mood Miss Sophie prepared...
Plenty of festivities to get excited about.
10 - 26.05.2018
Miss Sophie’s could not miss the chance to write about Czechs favorite drink (and they are proud to be the best ones at brewing this golden liquid). For that reason, there will be a lot of beer festivals. The biggest beer festival which will feature more than 150 kinds of beer from different breweries from around the Czech Republic. We are most definitely looking forward to it! To go with your beer, there will be plenty of Czech-made street food options. The festival will be located in Letna park. What can be better than having a nice evening, with the best view of Prague and holding cold Czech ale….a fairy tale.
More information you can find here.
We know Czech Republic is famous for its beers, but it also has a history of wine-making. No wonder that Miss Sophie will be there, sipping some Rose while sunbathing.Festival is called “Pink May” which will be happening on Náplavka. Imagine, just like a scene from a movie...after a long walk through the city you sit on the riverside, a slight breeze blowing, you hold a glass of rose wine, jazz music on the background and full enjoyment of this evening- and all of these YOU can experience.
Miss Sophie is thrilled about Spring and hope that you are as well. I believe it is another chapter in our book of life -why not have a time for yourself and plan a little trip to the stunning red-roofed city; feel the rhythm of this charming place, relax and just have an experience of a lifetime. I mean, how can you say no? If you are a solo traveller, a lovely couple or a group of friends, Sophie wants to be home away from home for each and every one of you.
