On the night of April 30th to May 1st, it is the Witches Night in the Czech Republic. It is believed that boundaries between the worlds are erased at this time, and evil forces come to the human world.

During the celebration, one can dress in a witch costume, try flying on a broomstick and participate in other interesting games. Many Czech towns hold witch processions ending with the symbolic burning of a stuffed witch. Easter is widely celebrated in the Czech Republic.
