Most Praguers are pretty style-conscious and take pleasure in looking good. Folk here still dress up for dinner, and as for going to the opera in anything but your best, well, you must be a tourist.
Pack layers of clothing – Prague's weather can be fickle, with thunderstorms and cool spells even in summer. In spring and autumn, a light trench jacket and a small umbrella will mean you’re prepared for the odd shower. In winter, bring a warm coat, hat and gloves to ward off the sub-zero temperatures, and footwear that can cope with snow and ice.
