The Prague Easter Markets
One of the highlights of our trip, so far, have been meandering through The Prague Easter markets. These run daily from 20 March to 11 April 2010 at the Old Town Square and Wenceslas Square. Over 100 stalls sell hand crafted products, such as wooden toys, Czech crystal and glass, candles, jewelry, metal-ware, embroidered cloth, and beautifully dressed puppets and dolls. The most common sight is the brightly colored, hand-painted Easter eggs, which Czech ladies dressed in traditional costume will even personalize for you, painting on a name or special message.
