Matějská pouť 2015

March 1st, 2015 till April 30th, 2015

The Most Famous Czech Fair is Back in Prague - Matějská pouť (St. Matthews Fair)

The most famous and most visited fair in the Czech Republic is St. Matthew’s, held annually in the spring months on the site of the Prague Exhibition Grounds. Here you can try dozens of domestic and foreign attractions. The most famous include a roller coaster, ferris wheel, haunted mansion, house of laughter, chain carousel, countless swings and bouncy castles, old Bohemian shooting range and the ever popular bumper cars. Naturally there are fast food stalls, with oriental sweets and gingerbread hearts being the usual souvenir from St. Matthew’s Fair.

St. Matthews Fair is the very first spring fair in Europe. The tradition of the fair has been archived in the Czech National Library since all the way back in 1595. It was originally held in front of the church and was directly associated with the feast of St. Matthew. But the area was insufficient and therefore the stands and merry-go-rounds slowly shifted to different places in the city. In 1963, it moved to the neighborhood of Stromovka Park.

You can visit the fair on weekdays from Tuesday to Friday between 2pm and 9pm, on weekends and public holidays it is open from 10 am to 10 pm. The price of admission for adults is 25 crowns, for children 10 crowns. The prices for the attractions range from 40 crowns for a children's train to 200 crowns for large foreign attractions.
