Beer festival

6 Comments Prague

As it turns out there is a beer festival going on right when we’re in Prague, the Český pivní festival. We had no idea about this when we booked our trip so we just got lucky. 🙂

It’s the fifth year this annual beer festival is held and it goes on for 17 (!) days from May 17 to June 2. The festival offers a great selection of local beers from many breweries, Czech food and live music. The festival is located in the Vystaviste Praha Holesovice park in Prague 7 area of the city.

The festival has the largest beer tent ever built in the Czech Republic with a total seating capacity of 10 000 offering many different types of beers (over 70 brands) from many large and micro breweries from all over the Czech Republic. Food and drinks are served by waiters and waitresses dressed in traditional Czech national costumes. The festival has a special currency for paying for your food and beer called the Tolar.  One Tolar is worth 1.8 EUR and two of them will get you one 1 l beer. Sounds good to me and not that I think you have doubts but just to clarify, of course we’ll be going there!

    I tried to comment at the first post about Prague but it didnt seem to work.. so I try here instead..

    How nice to go to Prague! 🙂 I was there for a weekend with friends back in 2010.
    I can recommend going to the Zizkov suburb to look at the TV tower with climbing babies (!).. There are also cheap beer places there. The Lennon wall is also worth a visit.

    Here are some photos from my trip that will give you some more ideas on things to see and do:
