September in Prague is characterized by the return of the school days, locals are back from their country cottages and school trips flood the city with energized young tourists. The successful protection against COVID-19, means a safe environment to enjoy the outdoors and main attractions of the city.
Prague trees are starting to change to a yellowish colour, and locals and tourists are still enjoying the outdoors. Bars, beer gardens and restaurants are all very popular at any time of the day.
The morning is cool and fresh normally followed by a sunny and warm afternoon. Evenings can have a cold breeze. Dressing shorts for the day, jeans and a windbreaker for the evening would cover most of the situations September holds. Ah, have an umbrella in hands, just in case. Autumn in Prague may reserve some surprises.
But, WHAT CAN YOU DO IN PRAGUE IN SEPTEMBER:
