Useful Information for your Stay in Prague

By Chris Boyle

WHEN BEST TO GO

hotel exterio

Prague is most popular during the summer when temperatures occasionally climb to 30°C or more.

The city’s continental climate brings harsh winters and hot summers. The ideal time to visit Prague is in late spring when temperatures are more agreeable, and in early autumn to catch the vivid colors.

Czechs are generally polite and reserved, and place great value on personal modesty.
