The largest and most famous Easter markets in Prague.
The market features wooden stalls decorated with the bright colours of spring, flowers and ribbons. They are stocked with handicraft products such as embroidered lace, wooden toys, ceramics, scented candles, puppets, and Easter eggs.
The accompanying programme traditionally focuses on old Czech customs and traditions, including concerts of children’s choirs and folk-dance performances. Visitors will have a chance to see and hear unusual music instruments such as stumblebums, a fanfrnoch (a string drum) or bagpipes. They can also observe how a blacksmith or other craftsmen work. There are prepared demonstration of egg decorating techniques too.
Food lovers can look forward to meat skewers, steaks, grilled sausages, homemade cheese, gingerbread, marzipan, Czech Easter specialities such as mazance (Easter sweat bread) and more.
For children, the organisers have prepared workshops, which will take place on Saturdays, Sundays and on Holy Thursday, Good Friday and Easter Monday from 11 a.m. to 3.00 p.m. A small zoo area will be there too.
