Prague Climate and Weather

Prague has a typically European continental climate with cold, snowy winters and warm (sometimes wet) summers. Winters (November to February) can get very chilly. January is the coldest month, with strong, cold winds, and daytime temperatures dropping far below zero. Snowfall can be heavy. Prague experiences average temperatures ranging from 25°F (-4°C) during winter, to 73°F (23°C) during summer. The best time to visit is from May to September, when days are warm and nights cool. The European summer (June to September) is the tourist high season, but spring and autumn can also be rewarding times to visit, particularly if visitors prefer to avoid the tourist crowds. Although the winters are cold, the landscape does look strikingly beautiful when it is snowy.
