Prague in February
Weather in Prague in February incl. tips on things to do in Prague in February
February is another of the colder months, during which Prague's streets can be covered with a dusting of snow, and occasionally drifts. And believe us, the sight of snowy Prague is really worth it! At the same time, taking a trip to Prague this month brings with it some significant advantages, such as smaller crowds - you'll have even the most popular sights more or less to yourself. Even with school spring break, Prague residents like to get out of the city and into the mountains, and it's a rather less touristy month. However, that certainly doesn't mean there's nothing to do in Prague. On the contrary! Whether you want to visit Prague as an activity or as a cultural trip, there are plenty of options.
Weather in Prague in February
In the Czech Republic, the February weather is associated with a lot of folk proverbs (weather wisdoms) that mention frost or snow. And that's no coincidence - the down coats are far from coming off. Although it's officially the last month of winter, the weather in Prague in February is not much different from the previous January. Temperatures hover around zero and often drop into the minus degrees, humidity is about 82 percent, and snowfall is no exception. Although the snow usually doesn't last and melts right away. Especially near the Vltava River, the cold is more intense and "creeps under the skin". That's why it's not a bad idea to pack functional underwear, warm tights and gloves with a hat. But you probably won't need an umbrella. The weather in February in Prague is the driest of the whole year, according to statistics it rains just over five days a month. And as the days get longer, so does the sunshine! The sun rises around 7.30am and sets around 5pm, an hour later at the end of the month.

Take advantage of the low tourist season and head to the grounds of Prague Castle and climb the tower of St. Vitus Cathedral. Continue along Nerudova Street to Lesser Town Square and on to Charles Bridge. Stop at the Lennon Wall, in the adjacent Kampa Park with the lowest street, Čertovka Street. Then head back to the bridge and end your trip in Old Town Square, perhaps in one of the pleasant cafés.
