Beer festival still going strong

beerTonight is the last day of the ice hockey world cup in Prague, and even though we are sad cause Czech Republic lost their bronze match against the USA, we are still curious to see whether Canada or Russia will win the gold medal in the tournament.

But, even if the hockey world cup goes towards an end tonight there is no need to despair, because the Czech Beer Festival is still going strong and it will last until next Saturday, so you still have six more evenings on which you can taste the fantastic Czech beer. So enjoy, and if you want to know more about other events, festivals and concerts taking place in Prague, then read more about whats on in Prague here.

Enjoy Prague, and do not forget that if the temperatures get really hot, then some sun lotion can be useful, because the sun can get really strong and make your nose nice and red if you do not put some lotion on it.
