Normality (of sorts) returns to Prague and the Czech Republic

Today is a momentous one in the story of 2020. The next stage in the 'Great Reopening' is underway: pubs and restaurants can open fully, with seating now permitted both inside and outside; hotels, swimming pools and zoos are welcoming visitors once more; river cruises are sailing again; and many events can resume.

But the next big question.... when will the borders fully reopen?...

The city of Prague never sleeps! In Wenceslas Square, long-planned renovations are under way: by 2025 the famous square will have a new look, as shown on the photo below, with more space for pedestrians and more green space. There will be new paving, an extra line of lime trees will be planted, and tram tracks will be laid along the sides of the square. The centre of the square will be free for pedestrians and cyclists.
Wenceslas Square is 750 meters long and 60 meters wide, and was originally founded as the Prague horse market by King Charles IV in the fourteenth century.

Czech Pubs
28 April 2020

The Czech people are saving their pubs! These are sad times for pubs and restaurants, and many are struggling financially. Places that used to be full of life are now deserted. So Czech pub goers are supporting a project called 'Save your pub', which involves them buying vouchers for beer and food in their local, for use when the corona-crisis is over. In the last month alone vouchers to the value of 7 million Czech Crowns have been bought. The initiative was founded by the Czech Association of Breweries, and 2400 pubs have signed up so far, located all over the country.

Czech Baking

Forced to stay at home, Czech people have turned to the traditions of their grandmothers in order to feed the family, limit the need for shopping and to kill a bit of lockdown time. Everyone has started to bake! Bread, rolls, sweet buns, even burger buns - everything is home made these days, while flour and yeast are slowly becoming goods in short supply!

Sewing in Prague
18 April 2020

Sewing is the new national hobby in the Czech Republic. A shortage of face masks has led thousands of people to volunteer to sew face masks at home, to help combat the spread of coronavirus. Anyone who owns a sewing machine is helping out, sewing masks not just for their families and friends, but also joining forces with others to produce a huge number of masks for hospitals, the emergency services and retirement homes.
