Prague Easter Markets

If you went during these days into the centre of Prague, you couldn’t have missed them. The 2007 Easter Markets, which started on March 26, and will last until April 15, take place at the Old Town Square, and Wenceslas square. The both are very similar to each other, and they offer almost identical commodities. Namely, Easter stalls offer a large selection of handcrafted goods, metal and wooden, candles, puppets, painted Easter eggs, etc.

What I didn’t expect were couple of sheep, a goat, and rabbits, they were quite tame, it was easy to feed them, and stinky, of course. About these eggs, you can have your text painted on it! Also, there is a good offer of traditional food and drinks. During Passion Week, a special Easter menu will be offered. That is roast rack of lamb, spinach pancakes, parsley filling, or mead. When the Easter comes, singing and dancing take place on a stage at the Old Town Square. The stalls are open from 9 to 19, but the food is often served until midnight.

Yesterday I went for a shopping and I run into another Easter markets, at Andel (Smichov area). They were offering similar stuff, the cultural program is different, though. Now I strongly expect, there are Easter markets in different parts of Prague, too. Does anyone know where?
