The beginning of spring is said to come with St Matthew's Day who is believed to break the ice. This event is one of the most popular fairs in Prague—a huge celebration is organized annually in Prague. The festival, also known as Matějská pouť, has a long history dating back to the 16th century. This annual fair has been attracting whole families for more than 400 years.
The festival grounds have around 120 attractions including roller coasters, houses of horror, carousels, waterfalls, cannonballs, a water world, a ferris wheel, and much more. This is not just for kids, but adults as well. There are lots of adrenaline-pumping attractions as well. The festival opens in late February and lasts until mid-April. This is all about fun and excitement.
