I booked a weekend trip to Prague from may 24th until the 26th and just discovered that there will be a running event like a marathon. Will the city be accessible? And if not, what are the best places to visit on such a day? Our hotel is near the center of Mala Strana.

Which running event would that be? I looked at several event calendars for Prague, and they all list only a marathon on May 11th.

In any case, I wouldn't be concerned; you're in walking distance of lots of sights, and the metro shouldn't be affected by such events anyway.

  • It's called the Mattoni Karlovy Vary half marathon

  • @TomDoes: here's a video of that event last year: youtube.com/watch?v=DYNz7C7oVec - looks like neither the number of runners nor of spectators would make the city inaccessible and you could cross the track without problems in most places Apr 20, 2014 at 19:52
