One of the three warmest months of the year in Prague, August is a month that sees quite a large touristic crowd in Prague. It is also the driest month in Prague, meaning that you won’t have to worry about a constant shower of rain. The weather in August could even become humid towards the end of the month, so you should be careful and pack accordingly.
The days also tend to become longer, with longer hours of daylight and shorter nights, and that is good if you wish to go sightseeing. The temperature range begins from 11 degrees Celsius and goes all the way until 23 degrees Celsius, meaning that the summer weather in Prague can be quite unpredictable. That’s why, packing only shorts is not recommended. Although there is a decrease in rainfall during the month of August, you should still pack an umbrella to be prepared for the sudden rain, and also pack a light jacket to shield against the sudden chilly winds. Additionally, in order to enjoy the tours to Prague, it is recommended to pack close-toed shoes, just in case it starts raining.
Sightseeing isn’t the only thing that one can do in Prague in the summer. There are festivals that you can attend too, such as the Venetian Nights, which begins in July and continues on until August, and the Festival of Italian Opera, which starts in August and ends in September. Additionally, you can also take advantage of the daylight hours and go on Prague river cruises, or plan a day out in the countryside. Prague’s countryside has quite a lot to offer to its visitors, as there are several different castles and chateaus, as well as many other fun places that are perfect for entertaining family activities. And the best part of it all, these places aren’t very far from Prague, so you won’t have to travel very long to get to your destination.
