Mardi Gras celebrations open in Prague

Revelers have taken to the streets for a Mardi Gras carnival in Prague. Most of the events planned over the next few days will take place in the Lesser Town and on Prague’s old Town Square where people will be able to enjoy the performances of clowns, acrobats and revelers in masks and carnival dress. There will be concerts of baroque music and dancing and crazy competitions. Some restaurants in the city centre are offering special Mardi Gras menus.
