Czech Republic in the Spring

 

Opening of the Springs 2015 Luhačovice

May 8, 2015 – May 11, 2015

This year’s main spa season in Luhačovice commences with the Opening of the Springs.

A big celebration in the Moravian spa town of Luhačovice is the ceremony of the opening and blessing of the springs. Three festive days will take you back to the peaceful atmosphere of the beginning of the last century. The therapeutic springs and beautiful buildings of the spa become the backdrop for theater and folklore performances, and the resort will come to life with colorful garments and art nouveau costumes. There will also be a farmers and crafts market, with vintage cars and bikes on display. The climax of the event is a costume parade led by a priest, who goes to individual springs on Sunday after celebrating mass.

The ceremonial opening of the spa season in Mariánské Lázně

In Mariánské Lázně the spa season will be launched the second weekend in May.

This year the 207th spa season will be inaugurated in Mariánské Lázně a city in Western Bohemia. The opening also includes an age-old custom of blessing the springs. Part of the celebration is also a festive concert, a mass, a craft fair, a charity golf and tennis tournament, birds of prey flight demonstrations as well as concerts. The program takes place at the Colonnade, in the space of Arnika and in the spa park.

The Gingerbread Festival is held in the courtyard of Pardubice Château.

Decorative gingerbread has become the symbol of the city of Pardubice. This well-known delicacy is so famous that it has acquired the right to a protected geographical indication from the European Commission, and it has its own museum and even festival. It will be held for the fourteenth time on both courtyards of Pardubice Château in 2015. Both adults and children can look forward to a varied fair of gingerbread, honey, wood and other products, refreshments, an exhibition of gingerbread, the painting of pictures in the gingerbread gallery, and other artistic creations. The festival is accompanied by some fairytale performances, a contest to determine the fastest gingerbread eater, the peeling of gingerbread from a gingerbread house, and a special course in how to sit on a shovel under the supervision of Baba Yaga!

The vineyards of Prague

Sample wine from the famous vineyards of Prague! While in the Middle Ages they surrounded Prague on all sides, nowadays they are romantic, out-of-the-way corners, hidden from the bustle of everyday city life.

Similarly to other towns, Prague has, in the last few decades, returned to the ancient traditions of wine-making, and vines are once again cultivated in revived vineyards. If you want to discover (and taste) true rarities, these are the places to visit, because these wines generally aren’t normally available in shops.

Vyšehrad - St. Martin Rotunda

Myths and legends of Prague

Streets paved with cobblestones, long shadows stretching from glowing lanterns, the wind playing with the coloured leaves and the dark outlines of the Gothic cathedrals. This is magical Prague, a city shrouded in countless myths and legends from its thousand years of history. Set out on the trail of its mythical inhabitants and creatures to unusual places which go to make up the unique character of this city on the banks of the Vltava.
