Hromnice 2012

by Jeff on February 2, 2012 · 0 comments

Today is Hromnice, which is an important day for Czech weather-related folklore. It falls on the same day as Groundhog Day because both are based on the same ancient Celtic tradition. Today was sunny and clear in Prague, so we expect winter to linger.

Ravens at the End of October

by Dana on October 31, 2010 · 1 comment

It is October 31, the fall colors are fading and November is upon us. The Daylight Saving Time ended today in the Czech Republic and we are now officially on our way to winter. They say it is going to be a harsh one, judging by the early arrival of ravens and, as some Czech press playfully writes, by the fact that the meteorologists in Brno-Žabovřesky are adding insulation to their building (let’s remember that the Czech government’s Green Savings Programme is in full swing and styrofoam-clad buildings can be spotted quite easily these days).

We like to bring you pictures and here are a few taken recently by Jeff.

Happy Halloween!

We went to Střelecký ostrov and Petřín over the weekend and we were surprised to find the trees turning color and shedding leaves already. With the wind and slight chill in the air, it really felt like fall.
