Joining to Prague in January for 3 nights, hand luggage only. just looked at weather and it's going to be very cold!!
Ideas of what to pack and what cost and boots would be best.
Hate bulky jackets or anything woollen or itchy confused

Thermo layers

What's the warmest you have? Pack that! Doesn't need to be wool, but thermal and layers. Have you got warm boots and socks? Cold feet always make the rest of me freeze. And a hat and scarf. Sorry, I'll stop there, I'm beginning to sound like my mother!

WRT packing, probably just your undies, make up and a few changes of top, you'll be wearing everything else!
So grab your warmest coat, scarf, hat and gloves. Then for your feet walking boots or something else with a good grip and thermal socks. (Lots of cobbles)
Most coats seemed to be the puffa/down type, lots of black. Thin people had them belted grin

Leggings or fleece tights to wear under your trousers. Warm, waterproof, flat boots.

Thermals and layers. Gloves/hat. Comfy footwear (cobbles). A brolly. Sunglasses.

Fantastic place. Enjoy!

Littlelondoner Wed 29-Nov-17 21:20:47

Defo fleece lined tights-were a revelation when watching eldest play rugby for hours on freezing pitch. Wear under jeans etc and you can always take off and stick quite compactly in your bag if you go to warm restaurant etc.

I was there in Feb a few years ago and it was utterly freezing, lots of snow around. Wrap up warm! Great city though, would love to go back at some point.

I would raid the Uniqlo Heattech section!


The tops are very soft.

Then maybe a down jacket? Or a parka?

RemusLupinsBiggestGroupie Thu 30-Nov-17 18:57:15

We were there in December a few years ago. Lowest recorded temperature whilst we were there was -12. I recommend plenty of hot chocolate stops!

Snow boots...the short,practical, insulated type, for keeping your feet warm and dry.
Gloves with proper linings or double layered and a hat with a proper fleece layer inside it so the wind doesn't whip through it.

My last visit there was Easter a couple of years ago. I had at least 4 layers, long coat, hat, etc. I look freezing in every picture

It doesn’t feel as cold as it is. Layers, merino wool is good, sealing the layers by tucking in, proper hat.

jelliedeel Thu 30-Nov-17 21:27:27

I second the Uniqlo heattech stuff too...ultra warm tights for under trousers and the layering tops.

I've been before in February when snow is on the ground, it was cold but not as expected... it was snowing in the UK at the time, which felt much colder due to wind chill... so was quite comfortable over there with what I was wearing on a cold day here in the UK. Top tip... ensure you validate tram tickets (couldn't get to one due to a busy tram and ended up with a fine angry)
