Prague Easter Markets to be Inspired by Famous Czech Drawer

LinkedIn Pinterest +

This year, as usual, Easter in Prague will be mainly focused on great Easter markets. The largest ones, at the Old Town Square and Wenceslas Square, will be inspired by drawings of one of the most famous Czech artists, Josef Lada, in 2016.

Josef Lada’s timeless drawings and illustrations are very specific and unmistakable, and you would hardly find a Czech (regardless of age) who is not familiar with them. And the name of Lada even became a new adjective in the Czech terminology: “Ladovský” means poetic, yet simple, full of peace, pictorial, and evocative of tradition. So the Easter markets will charm their visitors, among other things, with typical fairy-tale-esque drawings at the wooden huts signs or fun photo-booths, in which you can turn into figures from Lada’s pictures.

Furthermore, apart from the traditional offer of local handicrafts and various foods and drinks, you can for example try out handicraft stalls this year at Prague’s Easter markets. Paint your own Easter egg or create a traditional Czech braided whip made from pussy willow twig. “We focus on promoting Czech traditions,” the organizers say, and explain that Josef Lada and his works are an inseparable and beloved part of those.

The celebrations of the most important Christian holiday start on the 12th of March and will last till the 3rd of April.
