Winter is coming- Film festivals in Prague

Türkçe yazı için buraya tıklayabilirsiniz.

Winter is knocking the door… This is a sign of the film festivals in Prague.

Before I moved here I had no clue about what to do in the cold winter season. Last year I experienced freezing weather and also how to spend time during these months. Film festivals are one of them, it’s amazing how people come together and fill up huge cinema halls like Lucerna or Světozor. You can always enjoy Czech aperitifs after the films or if it’s an Iranian or Indian film festival you can taste the local food from different countries right before entering to the cinema.

Kino Lucerna is one of the venues for Prague film festivals
