Weather in May turns pleasantly warm, and trees burst into colorful blooms. You can expect lots of sunshine and occasional rain showers, so typical for spring. Due to the comfortably warm temperatures, you can normally enjoy outdoor seating and patio dining. Since the daily number of COVID-19 cases in the Czech Republic dropped significantly in the past few weeks, we hope that the this positive trend will soon bring the green light to open our fine dining La Rotonde restaurant and its lovely terrace for all once again.

The Prague Zoo, botanical gardens, farmers’ markets and some shops have reopened. Prague Castle gardens together with the Deer Moat are open to the public in a special regime. The city typically hosts many unique outdoor events throughout the month of May such as the famous Czech Beer Festival, Prague Spring International Music Festival, Prague Food Festival, Prague International Marathon and much more. Due to the ongoing effects of the Coronavirus pandemic, some of the events have been rescheduled for later, others have created its digital or virtual versions or have been in the process of awaiting further anti-epidemic measures.

This month we recognize two national holidays which are welcomed by the locals not just for the occasion, but also as two extra days off from work. The 8th of May is the Czech Liberation Day, which commemorates the end of World War II in Europe. The 1st of May is the Czech Labor Day as well as a date when Czechs celebrate love. A “must do” on this day is kissing your loved one under the blooming cherry tree. The most iconic place to do so is on the Petrin Hill which you can even see from the hotel room of our 5-star Alcron Hotel. This kissing tradition is connected to a famous poem written by one of the greatest Czech poets, Karel Hynek Macha. You can find his statue, not surprisingly, in the Petrin Hill Park.

And there is even more to celebrate! Unbelievable 89 years have passed since the first day of the opening of our Art Deco Alcron Hotel. Celebrate the Birthday of the historical Alcron Hotel with us and book your room for a special rate!
