The Prague Easter markets display handcrafted goods, all manner of food and drink, and showcase the wonderful old customs of a traditional Czech Easter. So, enjoy the bright colours of spring, browse around and sample the hearty local fare. Wooden huts display a variety of handicrafts such as crystal and glassware, jewellery, metalware, candles, wooden toys, embroidered cloth, and beautifully dressed puppets and dolls.
But the most common sight is brightly coloured, hand-painted Easter eggs, which Czech ladies dressed in traditional costume can personalise for visitors, by painting on a name or a special message.
However, the Prague Easter markets are not just about shopping. You can also observe traditional foods being made, and sample all manner of local food and drink. Large hams are roasted on spits. Traditional Czech pastries are prepared in front of you, such as ‘Trdelník’ – a hot, sugar coated pastry. Plus there are terribly unhealthy, but wonderfully tasty, barbequed sausages.
