Welcome to autumn! Summer sees some cultural activities slow down in Prague. Come September, the theaters that go dark in July and August flood their stages with new performances. Festivals are springing up everywhere and tourist numbers usually drop a bit. Enjoy the month, and these events!
On the occasion of Alphons Mucha’s 150th birthday, Obeční dům showcases a variety of his work. Mucha’s art focused on the themes of love and belonging, which is what this exhibition strives to portray. Really love Mucha? Visit his museum.
Now, don’t go all snoozy on us – this is quite fascinating. Every Thursday at 7pm through September 23, St. James Basilica fires up the ole pipes and world-renown organists get it on. Did we liven it up for you any? The organ in St. James is unbelievable, the acoustics perfect and the church a beautiful setting in which to absorb it all.
There’s nothing like attending a local sporting match to get a true picture of the local culture. Prague has two top flight teams, Sparta and Slavia. Matches are inexpensive, there’s lots of good stadium food and if the action on the pitch isn’t all that exciting, watch your fellow spectators. They are bound to be doing something crazy (like lighting off flares, which seems to be legal). Read more about catching a football match here.
