Prague Weather

The average temperature for Prague is 5 degrees Celsius. In the three years that I have been here the hottest has been 32 degrees in August and -21 degrees in January. But these are extreme weather cases.

The Summer Weather

The summer is usually sunny and 20 degrees Celsius. If it rains, it is typically just for only a few minutes. Usually, you can hide away under an extended roof, or run into a church and wait it out. It will be a big dump of rain for five minutes and then will completly stop. The clouds part, the sun peaks through, and like a bunch of marbles spilling on the floor, people fill the street once more.

The Winter Weather

I spent most of my life in Canada. In the winter it could get as cold as -30 degrees. So I am used to the cold. But when I spent my first winter here I was surprised how cold it felt. The thermometer claimed that it was -15 but it felt like -30. That is when I found out that Prague is a moist city, so the cold feels really cold – cold that you feel in your bones, a cold that no amount of sweaters, hats, and gloves can remedy. You are cold on the inside. There is nothing you can do but bare it. Luckily, there are lots of restaurants offering warm onion soup. That helps.

Cloudy Days

In the winter Prague has many cloudy days. Weeks can go by without seeing the yellow ball in the sky. If you depend on the sun for your daily fill of energy then Prague is probably not the best place for you in the winter. I am a psychologically stable person, but even for me, two weeks without the sun can be depressing. Weather does affect mood.

Did I bring you pleasure? :)

I hope you find this website helpful. I created the website because I love Prague, I enjoy writing about it, and I get a weird kick out of helping you make your trip to Prague more enjoyable.

I wrote a book about local travel in Prague. The book is my pride, my joy, my unbiological offspring. It was written with a passionate heart. If you find this website helpful consider getting my book full of useful tips that will instil in you the confidence to wander the local streets of Prague. The book is included in the popular (proud to say over 1000 sold) Prague Local Explore Kit.
