1st May is celebrated in Czech as “Svátek zamilovaných” (love day),known for couples, kissing under the tree in bloom.
All over the world, people think that there is only one day in the year for lovers, but the Czech (especially our poet Karel Hynek Macha, who wrote „May“ in the 19th century) are celebrating this day just like all the Americans do on Valentine’s day.
One of the places, where young couples always go on the 1st of May is Petrin Hill, located in Prague. There is an watchtower (with broadcaster) and a lot of parks with lovely little places under the trees. Walking on the Charles Bridge or on the embankment of Vltava could be really nice, but if you are in love and you want to celebrate the „Prague Valentine’s day,“ you really need to visit Petrin.
