If you think about July in Prague, what is the first thing that comes to your mind? Hot, fun, long days, and endless choice of outdoor events! What do you sense and feel? Sunshine, light breeze, and lots of energy coming out through people enjoying summertime. What do you hear? Live music, locals chatting at the riverbank, enjoying a cold beer. What do you smell? Sweet smoke from the barbecue grill, or maybe some delicious meal from our renowned Alcron Hotel?
SUMMER WATER ACTIVITIES
One way to see Prague, especially in summer, is by renting a paddle boat at the Zofin island, located about 15 minutes walk from our Alcron Hotel. You can get a cold beer and feast your eyes on the historical sights right from the water. If you feel like going to the beach, there is no better place than Zlute Lazne, where you can enjoy sunbathing, swimming, restaurants, and pubs all in one place. Are you in the mood to try something wild? You can spend fantastic afternoon rafting, hover-boarding, or waterskiing on the Vltava River.
There are two days of public holidays this month that follow each other – Cyril & Methodius Day on July 5th, followed by Jan Hus Day on July 6th. Some shops have limited opening times, however Prague tour guides, museums or restaurants and cafes operate as usual.
ESCAPE THE HEAT
There is a new exhibition exploring environmental sustainability called The Earth Is Me at the Historical Building of the National Museum, located at the top of Wenceslas Square, only a few steps from our famous Alcron Hotel. Another newly introduced exhibition attracts especially art and graffiti lovers and is called The World of Banksy. It is the world’s first concept of exhibiting Banksy’s artwork, displayed at Saint Michael Church. If you prefer to taste another type of artwork, then escape the heat by cooling down at our chilled BeBop Bar where we serve signature cocktails & snacks.
PRAGUE IS DANCING
Do you like classical dance? Modern dance? Latino dance? Hip Hop dance? Or maybe Folklore Dance? This month you can have it all!
