We had to wait for quite some time in 2018 for the real spring to arrive, but now it is here. In the last week, we have been able to enjoy temperatures around 25 Celsius during the daytime, and the temperatures have remained enjoyable even in the evenings. The sun has been shining, meaning that you even need sun lotion if you spend the entire day outdoors.

On a beautiful spring day, you should, of course, enjoy a trip on the Vltava river. There are quite a lot of trips available, and the beauty of spring is that you can sit outdoors and enjoy the view and the sun simultaneously.

Another beautiful experience is to put on some good shoes, and then just walk around in the city of Prague for an entire day. You will quickly discover areas most tourists do not see, and thus you will get an even better impression of the city and what life is like in the city. Besides this, you will also burn a lot of calories. As a consequence, you can eat even more and taste some Czech beer with a good consciousness.

Another experience that the entire family will enjoy on a spring day is a visit to the zoo. The zoological garden in Prague is a fantastic place to visit, and you can see beautiful animals in a very nice environment, a bit outside the city center of Prague.
