Tips for travellers with a disability

People with a disability often experience problems when travelling. However, in many cases these problems are not directly related to their disability, but rather discrimination. Some of the most common forms of discrimination are denied boarding, degrading treatment, poor assistance, additional charges to receive assistance and loss or damage to mobility equipment and assistive devices.

Christmas and New Year in Prague

Christmas is one of the nicest times of the year to visit Prague. Markets where you can buy typical Christmas food, crafts and sweets are set up in Old Town Square and this is also where the city Christmas tree stands dominating the area.

In Peace Square you can buy candles, incense, Christmas decorations and crafts. Mulled wine is also served adding to the Christmas cheer.

Easter

The most important religious event on the Christian calendar is Easter. The date on which Easter falls changes every year, but it is usually sometime between the end of March and April.

Good Friday is held three days before Easter Sunday and it commemorates Jesus' death by crucifixion at Calvary. Easter Sunday celebrates Jesus' resurrection from the dead after being crucified only three days before.

Mother's Day

 

Mother's Day is celebrated three weeks before Easter Sunday. This originally Christian tradition dates back to the 16th century when mothers would visit their former churches to see their children and spend time with them.

Today, the Christian origins of Mother's Day have somewhat disappeared and it is simply an opportunity for children to show appreciation for their mothers. On this day, children usually give flowers or a gift to their mothers.
