Dear friends of Prague,

Our third Preview of 2019 focuses on a selection of Prague events taking place towards the end of 2019. But first, a reminder of what awaits over the next couple of months. The Metronome and United Islands of Prague festivals are undisputed summer highlights in the rock/indie/pop genres. Fans of classical music shouldn’t miss the Summer Festivities of Early Music and the esteemed Dvořák Prague music festivals. Theatre and circus lovers will enjoy the Prague Quadrennial and the Letní Letná festivals, while visual art aficionados should take note of the upcoming French impressionism and Alberto Giacometti exhibitions at the National Gallery Prague. For more summertime events, check our Prague:summer quarterly, hot off the press.

Wishing you a lovely summer,

The Editors
