Come and celebrate the spring time and learn more about the Czech Easter traditions. While visiting the Easter market in the historical heart of Prague, you will travel back in time and explore ancient manufacturing techniques of Easter decorations, such as hand-painting of Easter eggs, making of braided whips called "pomlázka" (from the verb "pomladit" which means "to rejuvenate") and other spring decorations.

In the past, the Easter pomlázka used to be very important for women. Whipping with the braided whip was supposed to bring health and youth. The whipped girls would then reward the boys and men with painted eggs. The ancient traditions have been preserved and to some extent are still practiced almost in the whole Czech Republic till the present days.
