I always go on winter holidays Thialand, Cape Verde, Mexico to name a few but the other half wants to go to Prague this time just wondering do I need a coat or will my usual budge smugglers be warm enough?

What are these 'budges' you want to smuggle?

You won't need a coat. It's very warm in Prague in December. Enjoy.

A mankini and a smile will be enough.

(Or rainydaygrey's biscuit covering your nethers).

The average high in Prague is 2 degrees C and average low is -2.... It's 'Eastern Europe' you need a coat.

You mean budgies as in budgie smuggler swimming pants.
No, these will not be warm enough, pack your winter woolies.
It's colder than here, hope that answers your question.
My ds is due to go in December.

It is bloody freezing in Prague in December

I went in December about 5 years ago, it was lovely and warm. Definitely all you need is a swimsuit and maybe some flip flops. And don't forget the sunscreen.

Is this a serious question?

Intradental Sun 15-Nov-15 17:27:25

Yes, there is a microclimate in that region, and forcasts are often wrong. My meteorologist friend actually advised me to take the average predicted temperature in the Canaries as a better indicator for Prague at that time of year (something complicated to do with equivalent latitudes and longitudes and pressure systems...)

I found it a little nippy in my bikini in the snow. I do feel the cold though. Sure you'll be fine.

It'll be scorchio in Prague in December. Always is.

You might be a bit warm in swimwear, i'd try to find a nudist place

Manopaws Sun 15-Nov-15 19:19:03

Thanks all that's made it nice and clear ?? sorry about the spelling that will be that dislexseea thing getting it wrong again

NewLife4Me Sun 15-Nov-15 22:24:49

Sorry for correcting you OP, the budgie is important grin
Also dyslexic, hope I didn't offend.

I wouldn't travel anywhere without a coat. Even just one of those lightweight Primark £15 jackets you can pack into a tiny bag. I have the more expensive down version and it comes everywhere.

You might not need a jacket in Prague...but what about when you land in the uk???

Lweji Sat 21-Nov-15 09:19:03

I don't think a jacket will help much when you are in deep snow.

Don't you check weather forecasts? Did you book thinking it was a tropical climate?
Is this some weird stealth boast?
I do hope you're not for real.

Hmm now I am not sure whether to enter into this discussion as you cannot be serious about not needing a coat in Prague in December. I visited in May and spent my time looking for somewhere to buy a vest (!) It is Eastern Europe. It will be colder than UK.

CrazyOldBagLady Sat 21-Nov-15 19:11:03

Don't wear a coat in December in Prague, you will stick out as a tourist and get mugged. A light jacket and open toed shoes will suffice.

Thatrabbittrickedme Sat 21-Nov-15 19:23:24

If you have hairy hands, that should keep you warm... Hth

Djelibeyb Sat 21-Nov-15 19:46:19

No need for a coat. You can keep warm from the flames...

Prague also has lots of lovely bridges.
