Events you should not miss while visiting Prague in May
May is the month when you start to feel summer in the air, everything is in bloom and even a grump is touched by romance. For metropolises is May the time of tourists upsurge and events of all kinds are getting out of the sleepy buildings. Prague is not an exception. As in any city, even here, we find enormous amount of events of all kinds so that anyone can choose. As from the author´s side, it seems a bit selfish to decide which events are those “top” ones. Therefore, I decided to introduce some events that I find varied and interesting and hope you find your “top” one among them.
interest in food lasts for centuries, culinary events are of a big boom these days and they are getting back to the centre stage. No surprise, there is a full scale of them each month, with no exception of May.
