What to Wear in Prague During March?


March is a transition month but for the most part remains cold so you should pack a few sweaters and at least one medium-weight coat.

Warm shoes or boots and a couple of warm pairs of socks will also come in handy when exploring Prague on foot.  Also consider a lighter-weight jacket for the few warmer afternoons and don’t forget a good pair of walking shoes as well. 


Things to Do in Prague in March

With spring just around the corner, this would be a great time to take a pay-what-you-wish walking tour in Prague or see some of the most notable sites such as Prague Castle and the Old Town Square.

There are also usually at least a few great concerts to attend this month, as well as some fun theatrical productions for the colder nights.

If you're visiting on a particularly nice day, consider taking a cruise down the Vltava River and seeing all the major landmarks from the water.
