Origins of the Easter Markets in Prague

The Prague Easter markets go back long before the communist era and were once deeply tied to religious festivities. Under communism though they suffered a demise, as religious aspects were banned and Easter celebrations were limited to the welcoming of spring. Since the fall of communism, Prague's Easter Markets have experienced a renaissance. Tourists and locals now flock to browse the stalls and enjoy the atmosphere.

Prague's Easter Markets are a major attraction for both locals and tourists in the two weeks running up to easter. This really is a bit of an undiscovered find.
