                              Easter breaks full of character

Discover the most beautiful cities in Central and Eastern Europe with the special Easter
      offers for singles, couples and families by Mamaison Hotels & Residences.

Spring has finally come – the best thing to do is to pack your suitcase and to get away from it all
over Easter. If you choose a short break in one of the major Central or Eastern European cities,
you can celebrate Easter differently from back home, but still in a traditional way, and be
pampered in one of the unique Mamaison Hotels and Residences ( In
Prague, Budapest and Warsaw, Easter markets and classical concerts, historic sights and
museums ensure a wealth of new impressions. Mamaison Hotels & Residences provide city
centre accommodation with a pleasant atmosphere and have put together a comprehensive
package with many extras for Easter travellers – including an Easter gift, Easter Sunday brunch
and a visit to an Easter concert or a performance.

Prague Spring

It is a well-known fact that Prague is at its most beautiful in the spring. In streets and parks,
people make the most of the first rays of warm sunshine. The traditional Easter markets on Old
Town Square and Wenceslas Square bustle with life: Easter eggs are decorated and willow
switches plaited, glass blowers and woodcarvers demonstrate their ancient crafts. Folk groups
from all over the country provide musical entertainment. From 20 March to 11 April, “Pražsky
velikonoční trh”, the Easter Market in the heart of Prague's historic Old Town, has every
decoration on offer that you may ever need – and culinary delights hardly compatible with the
traditional idea of Lent. Grilled pork knuckles, hearty fare from frying pans and cooking ranges,
but also delicious cakes and pastries entice visitors to the stalls.

The Mamaison Hotel Riverside Prague ( in the modern
Prague quarter of Smíchov is only a short distance from the colourful market. The Boutique
Hotel provides stylish accommodation in an historic ambience. Friendly and attentive staff
ensures the wellbeing of all guests who also enjoy the benefit of free entry to the sauna and gym
at a nearby sports club.

Guests at the Mamaison Business & Conference Hotel Imperial Ostrava
( in Northern Moravia are no less spoilt. The upper midscale hotel
is located in the heart of Ostrava city centre with its pedestrian zone leading through a beautiful
old town with prestigious town palaces and many stylish coffee houses. Only recently, Czech
President Vaclav Klaus was a guest in the Mamaison Hotel Imperial and dined in the hotel
restaurant which enjoys an international reputation for its outstanding Moravian cuisine – the
perfect location for a delicious Easter feast.

Musical Easter days in Budapest and Warsaw

Over the Easter period, Budapest is host to Hungary's largest cultural festival. From 19 March to
5 April, the 10th Budapest Spring Festival presents more than 200 concerts of classical music, jazz
and pop as well as theatre performances and film screening in more than 50 locations. On Good
Friday, the National Opera will perform Wagner's "Parsifal", while Easter Saturday will see the
performance of Guiseppe Verdi's magnificent "Requiem" in the Palace of Art. In Budapest, too,
the scene would not be complete without an Easter market – alongside traditional crafts, you will
find hearty local delicacies such as langos, pörkölt, filled cabbage rolls and sausages. A trip to
Hadas in the Easter period is most rewarding. There you find an art and craft market with
demonstrations of traditional crafts, the blessing of the traditional Easter fare and other Easter
customs. Folk dance groups from Mezőkövesd and the surrounding region entertain visitors on
Easter Monday.

The Mamaison Hotel Andrássy Budapest ( is located right in
the city's historic centre. This unique 1937 building in the Bauhaus style provides top
accommodation at a very reasonable price. The interior design is modern, and neither the
catering nor the service leave anything to be desired. The Mamaison Residence Izabella
Budapest ( provides ideal accommodation for families in a central
location with spacious rooms and suites. The Residence spoils its guests with its warm and cosy

Warsaw, the city on the Vistula, offers a highlight for friends of classical music with the 14th
