The St. Matthew’s Fair Begins

We at Bohemia Apartments Prague provide information on Prague attractions, news and accommodation. This time you want to draw attention to St. Matthew’s Fair which has a tradition in Prague since 1963 and is the largest and most visited pilgrimage in Czech Republic.

The St. Matthew’s Fair became famous because it was the first spring fair in Prague and at the same time the celebration of St. Matthew (24th February) – the patron of craftsmen, confectioners, butchers and tailors. In Bohemia they say that St. Matthew breaks the ice, so it means that the spring is approaching. Let it therefore welcome to St. Matthew’s Fair.
