#1 Try new restaurants in Prague during Restaurant Week

Dozens of Prague restaurants are preparing special menus at set prices for Restaurant Week, which runs from March 6 to 24, 2024. The third local edition of the popular event, which began in 1992 and now runs worldwide, is held under the banner of Food Knows no Borders, and focuses on international cuisine and travel.

The event makes for the perfect opportunity to try a new restaurant in Prague. Participating venues consist of both old favorites and newly-opened locations, including Karlínská HolKa by the new footbridge in Karlín, Vietnamese bistro Rice Field in Vinohrady, New Town ceviche bar Meza Cruz, and much more.

#2 Celebrate International Women's Day

International Women’s Day, celebrated globally on March 8, initially honored working women in socialist and communist nations. It is now universally observed to acknowledge progress and, in some places, protest existing gender inequality.

Several events honoring women will take place across the Czech Republic throughout the week to celebrate women. See a full list of International Women's Day events in Prague here.

#3 Take a ride on Prague's new extra-long trolleybus

On March 6, special trolleybus line from Nádraží Veleslavín to Václav Havel Airport Prague will begin service. The new trolleybus line 59 will replace Prague’s bus line 119 and bring travelers to and from the airport.

The new trolleybus, touted as the longest in the Czech Republic, will enhance transport capacity by roughly a third compared to the current line of buses. Read more about the new extra-long trolleybuses here.

#4 Trade in an old read for a brand new adventure

Discover a new literary adventure during a book exchange at the Barrandov branch of Prague's Municipal Library. Bring your unwanted books and trade them for fresh reads: what's not your cup of tea might be someone else's treasure - and vice versa. The book exchange will take place from March 4 to March 8 at the Municipal Library in Barrandov.

#5 Get your last (legal) supply of HHC

A ban on sales of recreational cannabinoid HHC is expected to come into force during the middle of next week, and consumers are reportedly stocking up on supplies before it takes effect. The ban has been approved by the Ministry of Health and will take effect the day after it is signed into law, potentially on Tuesday.
