Four Long Weekends Await Us. What About Public Holidays in 2024?

2024 will offer Czech citizens several “long weekends” with public holidays falling on a Friday or Monday.

January 1st coincides with New Year’s Day and the commemoration of the Restoration Day of the Independent Czech State. This Monday celebration, coupled with the preceding weekend, grants us a delightful three-day break.

Looking ahead, the next long weekend in 2024 aligns with the Easter holidays, starting on Good Friday, March 29.

State Holidays Calendar for 2024: Mark Your Long Weekends

  • January 1: Day of the Restoration of the Independent Czech State (Monday)
  • May 8: Victory Day (Wednesday)
  • July 5: Day of the Slavic Saints Cyril and Methodius (Friday)
  • July 6: Jan Hus day (Saturday)
  • September 28: Czech Statehood Day (Saturday)
  • October 28: Statehood Day (Monday)
  • November 17: Day of the Struggle for Freedom and Democracy (Sunday)

Much like the Easter holidays, Labour Day, falling on a Wednesday according to the calendar, offers a day of rest. A week later, Czechia comes together to celebrate Victory Day as a national holiday.

The third long weekend of the year unfolds during the summer holidays. On July 5, Czechs honor the arrival of Cyril and Methodius, followed by the remembrance of Jan Hus’s day.
