The annual Prague Pride event is one of the highlights of the city’s Gay Calendar and is embraced by the entire city with full support from the Mayor’s office.
This year Prague Pride will take place from August 13th to 19th. The main parade will take place on Saturday the 18th of August followed by a series of special concerts.
This is one of the most colorful pride parades you are likely to see in Eastern Europe. And while it has a strong political element, there is also a great party atmosphere.
