Handling the Weather and What to Wear

prague-weather-chartThis largely depends on if we have an"Indian Summer"or not.The chart just shows averages.In an Indian summer you can still expect 20 degrees C but on average we'd expect 10-15 degrees C during the day dropping to 5-10 at night.So,much like March/April,you won't need cold weather gear but allow for a light sweatshirt/jumper and waterproof jacket.

Eating and Drinking

czech burcakIf you are a wine drinker and even if you are not then Prague in October still gives you a chance to try the first wine of the year.The really early wine is known as Burčák (pictured) and some places call it"wine cider".It can be either white or red and can come in many flavours but it should be a little sweet and yeasty as it has not finished fermenting.Expect to pay @CZK50 for a 0.2L glass.

Restaurants and cafes will be extending the use of any external areas by using space heaters but in general this is the month when outside eating will begin winding down.Still can be warm enough for aCzech Beer.On the menus the soups will be getting thicker and drinks menus will again be showing Mulled Wine and Grog (rum with hot water and lemon).Trdlo will return from it's summer form i.e.cold with ice-cream back to it's original form i.e.served hot just with a hint of cinnamon.Take a look at mytop six Czech food picksor for the more comprehensive guide,theCzech Food page.
