Masopust in Prague (Mardi Gras)

Masopust is the traditional Czech carnival celebration. The word “masopust” comes from the Old Czech and means “meat fast”. People wear masks, dress up in costumes, celebrate the start of spring, fertility and give farewell to winter. Masopust is a moveable feast day and the last chance to feast before Easter Lent.
