With a central position in Europe, Prague is affected by weather patterns from both the east (Siberia) and west (Atlantic). July and August tend to be the warmest months, though the weather can be changeable with a fair number of rainy days mixed in with the sunnier periods. The weather stays reasonably mild during September and early October but gets noticeably colder after that (indeed early mornings can be pretty chilly during autumn months). Winters in Prague will often bring snow along with plenty of rain!
Summer clothing is not too much of a concern, but being appropriately dressed for winter is more important. Good quality clothing is readily available in Prague and it is possible to purchase everything you need once you arrive, however we recommend that you bring vital items with you. Shopping can sometimes be more of a chore than a joy when arriving in a new country. A warm coat, hat, gloves and boots are essential.
