    Weather | Dress

    The weather in May is the best Prague will see in a year. The weather is warm but not hot, and with flowers blooming everywhere the city is a wonder to be explored. The average afternoon temperature is a very comfortable 18 degrees Celsius, with an average low of 7 degrees. 

    We advise that you bring an umbrella or a rain coat as Prague sees an average of 77 millimeters of rain in May, and the weather can be highly changeable over a short period of time. Dress in layers to account for quickly changing conditions. Make sure to bring comfortable shoes as sightseeing requires a fair amount of walking.
