Prague Spring

The Prague Spring Festival supposed to begin on 7 May until 4 June proposes an alternative format for its 2020 edition. Because of the COVID-19 crisis and the social distancing measures, the festival cannot go on as planned. Instead, it will go online: streaming live concerts and broadcasting archive recordings.

Between 15 May and 4 June, eleven concerts will form the basis of the alternative program for the Prague Spring 2020, which will be broadcast live from five concert halls in Prague and one in Brno.

The festival’s pivotal work, Smetana’s My Country, cannot be performed live, nevertheless, on 11 May Czech Television will broadcast a compilation of significant Prague Spring opening concerts from previous years.

Flea Markets

In addition to Art Parking, the Žižkov terminal also offers a place for regular flea markets. Visitors can pay a visit every morning and buy antiques, or just take a walk and soak up the atmosphere of old times.

The well-known Prague flea markets in U Elektry Street near Nádraží Libeň are also open.
