When to Go
Like much of Europe, the high season for visiting Prague will be during the period from May to September for pleasant, warm late spring-summer weather. Prices and crowds will reflect this. For someone wishing to travel outside this time, consider early-mid December for considerably lower prices and to see the city decked out for the holiday season.
