While for most of the year Prague concert halls offer dozens of concerts every week, in the summer months, when people leave for their holidays most concerts are aimed at foreign tourists but this year because of Corona Virus it’s generaly for expats and locals. from classical music to jazz, crossover and old music to world music come to this Prague festival in autum.
