Take a relaxing winter holiday to Prague this year and wander through the enchanting Christmas markets, the perfect place to stock up on traditional Christmas trinkets or find a wonderful gift for friends and family back home!
If you holiday in Prague in late November or December, visiting the charming Christmas markets is simply a must. There are a number of markets to choose from, all within a few minutes walk of each other. The most popular Christmas stalls to visit are located in the lovely squares of Wenceslas and the Old Town, with smaller markets to be found at Namesti Republiky and Hevelske Trziste. From the brightly coloured traditional handmade toys, ornaments and gifts to the delicate glass baubles and sparkling Christmas decorations, there is plenty to explore. Czech glassware is a popular purchase in the destination, with high quality crystal making a very special gift for a loved one back home.
As well as the numerous gift stalls, Prague Christmas Markets have many different food vendors to choose from. Indulge with a sample of traditional Czech cuisine; whether you’re looking for a quick dinner or a delicious snack, there are lots to choose from. Local breads, sausages and cheese are worth a try, accompanied with a hot glass of mulled wine. As you treat your taste buds, sit back and pamper all your senses as you take in the magnificent Prague architecture and listen to the sounds of the street performers, carol singers of orchestras who take to the streets. Take a photo in front of the huge Old Town Square Christmas tree and look at the nativity scenes which are on display.
Prague has many other attractions to enjoy if you get tired of the market place though, from the huge historic castle to many designer shops and boutiques. A city break to Prague can be very romantic; if you’re visiting with your partner take a river cruise, cross the Charles Bridge or spend an evening at the opera.
