‘If European Cities Were a Necklace, Prague Would Be The Diamond Among The Pearls’.
The Czech Republic has a centuries long history of being recognised for its famous Bohemian glass. Unlike other European cities, Prague has preserved its history and is like a Bohemian crystal among all the European cities. The city has a unique personality and September is the best month to feel it. Summer is slowly merging into autumn and the weather is cooling down which is greatly appreciated after the last two hot months of July and August. The same is happening with the atmosphere in Prague which is gradually calming down and becoming more peaceful and quite going hand in hand with the decreasing number of tourists and crowds. These are the main reasons making September one of the best and most favourite times to explore the beauty of our amazing Prague.
There are, of course, more reasons to visit Prague that will inspire you to start planning your trip. Are you a wine lover? Have you ever heard of “burcak”? Burcak is a young, sweet and low-alcohol type of wine that can only be drunk fresh and you can find it in the streets of Prague. September is the wine season and the month of so called “vinobrani” which is a traditional grape harvest festival most popular among locals from the Moravian region. There are many wine festivals in Prague during this month taking place at several Prague locations such as Troja (Sept 14), Prague Castle (Sept 14 – 15), Wenceslas square (Sept 27 – 28) and Vila Richter (Sept 28). Our concierge can arrange winery tours and tastings even outside of Prague where you will get the unique opportunity to enjoy regional foods, folk music and dance.
Would you rather go for more luxury experiences such as fine-dining and wine tasting? Then there is nothing better than booking a table at our famous Alcron restaurant. Have a look at our 7-course degustation menu with wine pairing. Alcron restaurant has unique event for the 18th of September. Starting with welcome drinks at our BeBop Bar, we will move the Alcron to the rooftop of our hotel which is normally not accessible for the public where we will serve you delicious amuse bouche before the actual dinner at Alcron restaurant.
How about meeting our renowned chefs Roman Paulus and Jakub Cerny even outside the hotel? Would you like to taste street food prepared by one of the best chefs of Prague while enjoying the amazing views of the Old Town? Check this special event taking place on the rooftop of Lucerna on the 16th of September. This time we will move our Alcron restaurant next door to Lucerna building just across the street from our luxury hotel. The event starts at 5 pm and lasts until the amazing sunset that you will watch with our chefs from the rooftop of Lucerna while tasting the most delicious food of local and international cuisine.
Our loyal guests and fans of La Rotonde restaurant’s brunches will be happy to make reservation for our famous weekend brunches. The first brunch after the summer break starts on Saturday, 31st of August. You are more than welcome to bring your children who will be looked after at the dedicated play area. Our courteous staff are looking forward to seeing you again in our fine-dinning La Rotonde restaurant where you can try the most delicious dishes such as beef and Salmon Carpaccio or Black Forest Ham, through Roast Duck with Cabbage with a selection of dumplings or seafood and selected fish, up to desserts of Chocolate Mousse or Crème Brûlée.
If you prefer having a burger, then stop by at our BeBop Bar and order the Be Bop Classic Burger together with some of the unique cocktails created by our talented bar tenders. For more drinks and burger choices you can go to the Burgerfest on 7th and 8th of September at Krizik’s fountain Exhibition grounds organized by Jack Daniel’s. Restaurants compete with each other to prepare the best burger. There will be also drinks stalls and live music.
If you feel guilty after consuming too much food and wine, burn off all these calories at the final major running event of the season, Birell Prague Grand Prix. It is a 10km evening running race for people of all levels that you can attend on the 7th of September.
Another important event for the Czech Republic is the 28th of September, the Day of the Czech Statehood which is the public holiday in Prague commemorating St. Wenceslas, patron saint of the Czech Republic. Some shops will have limited opening hours, but you can still do your shopping at the St. Wenceslas Market which will take over the Wenceslas Square located only 2 minutes by walk from our 5-star hotel. This market will feature wooden huts and stalls selling Czech beer, wines, sausages, local food as well as traditional Czech handcrafts, glassware, wooden toys, puppet and ceramics.
Culturally wise, September has also so much to offer. We will be happy to book your tickets for the Prague opera, ballet, classical or modern concerts. Our artists of the National Theatre are back from their summer breaks and keen to perform again in magnificent opera houses, stunning concert halls or the beautiful ambience of The National Theatre. Furthermore, we highly recommend going for one of the concerts celebrating the famous Czech composer Antonin Dvorak. Dvorak’s series of concerts are performed by Czech and international orchestras in Rudolfinum from 9th until the 23rd of September. Another highly recommended music festival devoted to Johann Sebastian Bach called “Bach for All 2019”runs from 27th through the 30th of September. We also suggest attending Michael Bublé’s concert on 17th of September at the O2 Arena which you may find to be one of the greatest September events in Prague.
And there are many more things and events that you will enjoy in September. It is very easy to fall in love with Prague and for lots of our guests their first time in Prague is not their last time. We will be very happy if you become one of them!
