Throughout the year, several public holidays are specific to the Czech Republic so we thought it might be interesting to give you a detailed list of them!
Ten public holidays during 2019 fall on weekdays.
This year, there are two four-day weekends: late March – early April (March 30 to April 2), and then in July (July 5 to 8). This means that over the course of the year there will be just 251 working days.
Holidays on July 6 (Jan Hus), September 28 (Czech Statehood), and November 17 (Struggle for Freedom Day) are, unfortunately, all on weekends.
