Czech Holiday Calendar 2023: Three State Holidays Fall on the Weekend

2023 will offer Czech citizens several “long weekends” with public holidays falling on a Friday or Monday.

1) The first ‘long weekend’ traditionally awaits us in spring: Good Friday and Easter Monday provide four consecutive weekends from 7 to 10 April.

2) The second weekend won’t last long. Labor Day falls on a Monday, and we will have three days off in a row, from April 29 to May 1.

3) The third ‘long weekend’ is Victory Day, which also falls on Monday. We will have three consecutive days off, from May 6 to 8.

4) The Fight for Freedom and Democracy Day falls on Friday, which means that we will again have a three-day holiday in a row, from November 17 to 19.

5) Christmas holidays: December 25 falls on Monday, meaning that there will be a four-day holiday, from December 23 to 26.

*January 1, 2024, falling on a Monday, could be considered the sixth “long holiday. At the beginning of new year, we will holidays from December 30 to January 1.

**In addition, the coming year 2023 will give us a chance to organize a five-day weekend in July. The holidays Cyril and Methodius Day and Jan Hus Day fall on Wednesday and Thursday. If you take the Friday off, you can have a five-day holiday from July 5 to 9.

In the new year, there will be 250 working days and 115 days off.
