Get a Taste of India in Prague

The Czech Republic probably isn’t the first place that you think of when it comes to Indian culture, but in July the streets of Prague will certainly have an Indian flavour to them.

Ratha-Yatra is a vibrant festival of Indian culture that will take place in the Old City on Sunday July 20th. If you’re staying in a hotel in Prague at this time, you’ll catch aromas of spices wafting on the air, hear the gentle sounds of Indian music and see colourful flashes of saris among the crowds.

The highlight of the festival is the parade, which winds its way through Prague’s streets, showcasing Indian dancing, incredibly intricate costumes and traditional music as it does so. 

Ratha-Yatra is not only celebrated in the Czech capital, though, it is actually marked by Indian communities all over the world. The festival is dedicated to Lord Krishna, with the figures of several Hindu deities typically being showcased on floats during the parade.
