The Easter markets (Velikonocni trhy) celebrate the arrival of spring in the Czech Republic, and the Prague markets are the most impressive in the country.

The Prague Easter markets are open every day from 17th March to 08th April 2018, including on Easter Friday, Saturday, Sunday, and Monday. The main markets are at the Old Town Square and Wenceslas Square.

There are also smaller markets at Republic Square, at Havel's Market, on Kampa Island, and on the square in front of St. George's Basilica at Prague Castle.

Wooden stalls will be decorated with the bright colors of spring, flowers, and ribbons and stocked with handicraft products such as embroidered lace, wooden toys, ceramics, scented candles, puppets, and Easter eggs. Visitors can also taste some Czech specialties including, naturally, Easter ones. 

At Old Town Square there will be more than 90 stands. Every day the markets are visited by 10,000 people looking for some great shopping as well as entertaining cultural programmes.
