Prague Carnival will be held 18 to 28 Feb 2017 in Prague, Czech Republic.
Prague Carnival is a Bohemian carnival In Prague. The main objective of the Bohemian Carnevale is to revive the spirit of traditional medieval carnivals which were celebrated both in the streets and in noble palaces. Each year in February, the harshness of winter is forgotten as the warmth and colour of the carnival take over. This annual festival is inspired by the colorful traditional festivals of Bohemia in the Baroque period, such as was experienced by Mozart. The carnival takes place throughout the city, with both indoor and outdoor celebrations, with costume parades, concerts, dance performances, a masked ball for children, and many other surprises that await you around every corner. The city of Prague is perfect for such fun, especially at night. Watch out Venice! Especially now since Prague has joined the Federation of Carnival Cities, which aims at connecting all of the famous carnival cities, making Prague the real deal. Prague may not have mysterious canals, however, the city is famous for its gorgeous architecture and winding cobblestone lanes that create a labyrinth in the city center. Prague Carnival is an event and I like events...

Long Tradition of Prague Carnival:

The carnival celebration has had a very long tradition in the Czech lands. From time immemorial, its main attraction was the masquerade parade. However, the Bohemian Carnevale Festival Prague is very different and, to a certain degree, it may be compared to the carnival in Venice… although the one in Prague is more closely connected with the historically pompous allegoric festivals held in the Czech lands.

The carnival annually takes place at several locations in the centre of Prague, including public areas, palaces, museums, galleries and theatres. You are likely to meet the participants of the carnival in colourful costumes and masks at all of these places.


Prague Carnival 2017 Festival Programme:

The festival programme is very rich.  Visitors can enjoy the colourful show of the allegoric masquerade parade from the Old Town City Hall through the downtown area, a variety of historic carnival scenic shows, professional and amateur clown and acrobat performances, magic shows, music and dancing creations, etc. A contest for the most beautiful mask takes place every year. There are lots of places to taste wines of special types and restaurants offer special carnival menus.

Enthusiasts who would like to play a more active role in the festival activities can lease an original costume. The festival usually lasts until Ash Wednesday, a symbol of the Lent season.
