Easter Festival – Easter Markets (7. – 28. 4. 2019)
These are mostly held around Easter on Wenceslas Square and the Old Town Square, which are only about 1 km from Hotel Kampa Garden ***, via the Charles Bridge. These markets with their wooden stands offer typical Czech artefacts (wooden puppets, candles, carved kitchen utensils etc.), souvenirs from celebrations to mark the coming of spring (genuine painted and dyed eggs, traditional willow whips, small items of jewellery and bobbin lace etc.), local dishes (sausages, ham off the bone etc.) and various savoury and sweet treats and alcohol (mulled wine, beer etc.). These are accompanied by short concerts on the surrounding stages or in nearby concert halls. Don’t forget that a lot of shops also hold sales and special promotions at this time.
