Lesser Town and Hradčany Masopust Carnival @ Kampa

“Masopust” comes from the Old Czech and means “meat fast”.

People dress up in costumes, celebrate the start of spring, fertility and give farewell to winter.

Hundreds of people attend the procession with live music and masks every year. It begins at Loretánské Square and finishes in Kampa. Masked participants meet at 13:00 in front of the pub U Černého vola in Loretánská street.

Come and enjoy a pig roast, slivovitz, mulled wine, and many other mouthwatering delicacies!
