When to Go to Prague

Visit Prague in the spring when the weather is mild with temperatures averaging in the mid-50s. Tickets tend to be less expensive between March and April as fewer people travel to Prague. The winter months are much colder with heavy snowfall. Those willing to brave the chill of winter will be rewarded with fewer fellow sightseers, and will be able to witness the European city glittering under a layer of freshly fallen snow.
