April in Prague is in the name of Easter - markets and Easter eggs are everywhere and we highly recommend you to hook up with some locals and observe Czech Easter traditions close-up. Girls get whipped by a braided whip made from pussywillow twigs called “pomlázka” and the boys get doused by water in return. The traditional markets are held at Old Town Square, Wenceslas Square and the Square of the Republic.
If you´re a fan of modern art more than traditional crafts, connect your visit of the famous Dancing House with Prague Design Week held inside, where you can buy original objects from local designers.
If you are a fan of bloggers and youtubers, you shouldn´t miss the Utubering festival, where you can meet popular online personas and enjoy many youtube and generation Z related activities.
Another great event is Apríles - a 1-day music festival in the unique ambience of the Žižkov Freight Railway Station that is in constant danger of getting torn down by developers who wish to transform the area into a housing complex.
Lovers of the good old times and smooth moves can buy tickets to the Prague Spring Swing Festival with big bands and dancing teachers that will inspire you to try new dancing figures.
Every April, you can also check out the selection of best European movies at the Days of European Film. The Lucerna and Světozor cinemas, that become the centre of the festival, are right next to Wenceslas Square.
If you´re a trained runner, get to Prague before the 1st of April because the popular Sportisimo Prague Half Marathon takes place in the streets of the city. Put on your sneakers and show Prague what you´re made of!
If you´re looking rather for fun then total exhaustion, sign up for unorthodox activities with ActiveCzech.com - try surfing in an indoor surfing arena, check out the skydiving simulator or enjoy real skydiving in a tandem. Guys should try driving the legendary Humvee, a real tank, or have a ride in a fighter jet.
At the end of April, on the 30th, Czechs celebrate the so called Witches´ Night and light up huge bonfires all around the city. The symbolic witch is burnt and the folks celebrate around the fire till morning. The best places to go for the celebration are the Ladronka park or the central park at Pankrác.
As the main tourist season is about to begin, many historic monuments prolong their opening hours or open their gates for the first time that year - especially castles around Prague, popular destinations for day trips from the capital city. Take a trip to the Karlštejn castle by train or sign up for a sightseeing flight over the castles of Central Bohemia.
And a special tip for those who wish to uncover the secrets of the Czech soul: April is the last month you can visit the Retro exhibition in the New building of the National Museum. See how Czechs lived, what they wore and how they spent their free time throughout the 20th century. The building also used to be the seat of the Czechoslovak federal government, so go through the various representational rooms and a brief exhibition following its history.
Easter markets: Stroll around the Old Town and buy an Easter souvenir from various Czech craftsmen. Colour you Easter egg or blow out the traditional “kraslice”.
