Czech Spring Traditions

Easter is traditionally a public holiday in the Czech Republic, and this year it is celebrated from March 30 to April 2.

Everything however starts the day before. Czech girls decorate Easter eggs to give them to boys on Easter Monday and the boys make a special handmade whip from twigs, in Czech called pomlazka, and decorate it with colored ribbons at the end.

On Easter Monday morning, boys walk from door to door to spank the girls on the legs with their whip. It is to say, that the whipping is rather symbolic. It is believed that the freshness, youth and strength of the twigs is passed to the women on this day. Every woman thus wants to be whipped in order to keep her health and beauty during the whole next year!

To make it even more memorable for our guests, the St. Thomas church, which is connected to the hotel also offers Easter masses for those who are religious. However, just to visit this 14th century work of art on Easter Sunday is simply breathtaking. Please contact our concierge for additional information!
