Dear friends of Prague,

Welcome to the final 2018 issue of our newsletter. If you’re planning to visit Prague during next spring or summer, perhaps you’ll be interested in some of the events we have hand-picked for you below. If heading to Prague soon, be sure to enjoy its holiday cheer, including the ever-popular Christmas markets. Other not-to-be-missed events include the spectacular František Kupka exhibition at the Wallenstein Riding Hall, tracing the pioneering artist’s progress from symbolism into abstraction, and the exhibition showcasing selected paintings from Alphonse Mucha’s monumental Slav Epic series, at the Municipal House.
