This weekend, you can enjoy the traditional St. Martin’s Day feast, visit the Old Town Hall after dark, or attend musical events of different kinds.
According to the weather forecast, it seems that this year the Czech weather lore about Martin arriving on a white horse might be fulfilled after many years. This is because it is supposed to snow, at least in the mountains, but even Prague might see some snowflakes (early in the morning or at night).
On Saturday, the temperatures will vary between 1°C (33,8°F) and 3°C (37,4°F) during the day and may drop to -1°C (30,2°F) after dark. On Sunday, it should be a little warmer. All weekend, we should expect cloudy skies and mild winds.

St. Martin´s Day Feast
GASTRONOMY EVENTOUR TIP St. Martin’s Day is, of course, on the 11th of November, so this year we celebrate it on Friday. Thus, if you do not want to wait for the weekend to start enjoying yourselves, you have some opportunities to enjoy yourself on Friday. In the traditional way, you can celebrate St Martin’s Day, for example, in The Wine Bar in “Arbesovo náměstí” square. Here, (not only) Martins are meeting up to drink this year’s young wines and taste roasted goose, other goose delicacies, and traditional Czech pies. Or, if you would like to try something new and enjoy your goose for lunch, the restaurant MaSa by Hervé Rodriguez has prepared a special goose menu, with, for example, goose foie grass, goose confit with red cabbage sauce, lokshe, and liver. They also offer a rather original dessert – disassembled tarte tatin with onion.
On Saturday, you can still enjoy St. Martin’s feast with the young wine at the farmers markets on the embankment of the Vltava river. This event takes place from 10 a.m. – 9 p.m. Address: Rašínovo nábřeží, Prague 2. There is no entrance fee. Find more information on the Facebook Event page.
