|Rostislav Maria Muller, founder of Prague Carnivale & Opera Barocca, invites you...|
|With regard to our lifelong love and passion for art, music and theatre, we decided some time ago to restore the almost forgotten nearly thousand-year old tradition of Carnival in Prague and return this phenomenon back to our calendar. Our intention was to recall the history and link of Prague carnivals, to revive the forgotten stories associated with this phenomenon in Bohemia, zoom in and highlight the social dimension and cultural influence of carnival on the development of individual artistic disciplines. Along with reminding of heritage the re-creation of traditional urban carnival, similar those which were celebrated in Prague and which are celebrated in many European and world cities today was our intention.|
Not much is happening during winter in Prague, but the two weeks of the Carnival festivities are simple the dates to be in! The splendid allegorical celebrations held in many worlds’ metropolises are always an exceptional culture-social phenomenon celebrating the joy of life, fantasy, talent, craft, and creativity. A Czech tradition which dates back over 700 years has been revived and the streets and palaces of our beautiful city are transformed into a multicolour whirl of masks and allegorical floats.
Coming with small or big group, your guests do not have to be spectators only they can become protagonists as well!And we have good news for those who would not fit with their event right into the dates of the Carnevale Prague, the producer of the festival can tailor unique programs with carnival themes at any time during the year. Ask our DMC or the organisor to come up with great ideas for just your event.

Carnival celebrations occupy the streets of Prague every winter season since 2007. Beside open air events, such as the opening of the city gates or the grand parade of masks it also includes many indoor events, like the miraculous Crystal Ball - the restoration of a baroque ball in masks, or the Cuisine D‘Alchimiste, a special carnival food block, which introduces Prague’s top restaurants presenting themselves with carnival menus.
This 12 days period is not only a colorful show of historical allegorical festivities, but also above all a laboratory of contemporary great ideas, unique skills, sophisticated tastes and splendid creativity.
