In 2018, Prague Coffee Festival will be arranged for the seventh time in Prague. This is the number one place for coffee lovers, professional baristas, coffee shop owners, coffee “beginners”, and everyone else to meet up and to learn more about their passion.
The first Coffee Festival was arranged in 2012. It was created to promote coffee culture, and to be a place of getting together for those in love with coffee.
Drinking a good quality coffee today isn’t as easy as it once was. There are lots of techniques in use, and there are new trends, also in the brewing business. At the Coffee Festival in Prague you will get a chance to learn more about the different techniques, and of course taste the best coffees available in Prague at the moment.
There will be an entrance fee to take part in the festival (at least they mention tickets at their homepage). These are not available for sale yet, but visit the website as the festival dates draw near.
Would you like to check out the Coffee Festival? Or are you more interested in events like the Signal Festival?
Do you have too much time for your stay in Prague (is that even possible)? You could consider a day excursion to some other city in the Czech Republic as well. There are lots of destinations worth visiting, for example, Pilsen, Cesky Krumlov, Brno, and many others!
Would you like to see Prague in a way few tourists will ever see it? Come to Prague for the Signal Festival, arranged for the sixth time in October 2018.
In the days from October 11th till October 14th (Thursday to Sunday), the city of Prague and many of its building will be turned into masterpieces of light in the evenings. The Signal Festival will be arranged for the sixth time in Prague. The festival calls itself the largest cultural festival in the Czech Republic, and it supposedly caused more than 2 million people to attend one of its events during the five years it has existed so far. Most of the things happening can be seen for free, and the event is sponsored by the local and the national government (among others).
Having a hard time understanding what the Signal festival is about? Take a look at the pictures and get a better understanding.
Does it sound and look nice? This is a perfect chance for the creative artists of the Czech Republic to live out their creativity. It is also the chance for photographers to practice their skills and to make awesome photos.
Prague has some amazing Christmas markets, and the most famous of them all are located at the Wenceslas Square and at the Old Town Square.
At these Christmas markets you can buy all sorts of products, most of them hand-made, and nice to bring home as souvenirs. There are also lots of stands at which you can buy traditional Czech food and drinks, and of course sweet stuff like chimney cakes, Czech muffins, and more!
Prague Christmas markets in 2018
The Christmas markets in Prague will open on December 1st in 2018, and they will stay open until January 6th in 2019. That means that they open later than most other markets in Europe, but they stay open for a longer time.
It is important to know that the Christmas markets in Prague are extremely popular. You should be prepared for giant crowds, and you will often walk in a line as you walk in the small streets connecting the Christmas market at the Old Town square with the Christmas market at Wenceslas square.
And do not forget to be early with your bookings in this period. With tens of thousands of tourists coming to town, it can often get packed at beer dinners, river cruises, and other similar programs. We normally have capacity for airport transfers all the time, but it never hurts to book your airport transfer well in advance either! Look around in the Prague Guide for further information!
