The Prague Spring Music Festival in May, running concurrent with the city?s Prague Khamora gypsy festival, make Prague on of the most popular tourist destinations this spring.

Prague, Czech Republic – April 27, 2007 – The staff at ( say that tourism in Prague has increased dramatically over the last several years based on their observation of a growing percentage of interest in Prague hotels. With the start of two important festivals in May, the company’s web stats show that interest in Prague hotels has reached an all-time high for 2007.

The Prague Spring Music Festival, held between May 12th and June 3rd, is considered by many to be the most important classical music festival in the world. Starting on May 28th and ending around the same time, is the 8th annual Prague Khamora, an elaborate 5 day festival bringing together vibrant gypsy music and culture from around Europe in the heart of the Czech capital.

“The Prague Khamora is an especially popular event that celebrates the history of Europe’s traveling people, the Romaneis [gypsies]. The gypsy culture is one of color, music, dance and freedom—a concentrated dose of the things that most travelers are seeking from a travel adventure,” says co-owner Marcel Stillekens.

The two concurrent popular festivals mean a high demand for Prague hotels. With nearly 4 weeks until the start of the Prague Spring Music Festival, 62% of the city’s 343 hotels are already unavailable. Stillekens encourages those who plan on attending either of the festivals to book Prague hotels early in order to secure a room in a good location and in close proximity to the events.

Over the past several decades, Prague, the capital city for Czech Republic, has become an increasingly popular city not only for tourists, but also for expatriates who are attracted by the low cost of living, cultural diversity, and elaborate centuries-old architecture.

“Many people consider Prague to be one of the most beautiful cities in Europe – some call it magical,” says Stillekens. “We receive many positive reviews from travelers who say that they have never experienced a city so rich in culture, art, and diversity.”

The two concurrent springtime festivals; one that celebrating music and the other the colorful nomadic gypsy culture, are a reflection of the culture-rich city itself. “May is one of the very best times of the year to visit Prague because of the moderate climate and the occurrence of the two festivals that quite literally set the city buzzing with energy.”

Stillekens points those who wish to book remaining hotels to's Prague hotels portal located at
