Christmas Markets in Prague

Christmas markets in Old Town Square Keeping the tradition in, this year’s the biggest Christmas markets start on Saturday, Dec 2, and will last for a month. As usual, this event will take place at the Old Town Square and Wenceslas Square. The Christmas Tree in the Old Town Square (over a hundred years old pine tree from Krkonose) will be lit on Dec 2 at 18 o’clock.

Alike every year, visitors may expect Czech traditions, folk, products in the stalls that will be open daily from 9 to 19, and one hour longer during weekends. There will be a contest for the finest mask of Santa, an angel, and the devil. This year, the city of Prague is the organizer of the project Bridges among towns, a project for kids from different towns to get to know each other, and performing together an appearance for people.

The one thing I really like about these markets, is the vibes and the feeling of Christmas. When I went there last year, I remember it was snowing, people were smiling as they were drinking their glass of traditional mulled wine and watching the concerts on the stage. What more, this year this hot wine will be sold in special cups which everyone can take home as a souvenir.
