Visiting Prague

Nov 07, 2006 00:51 | Robert

I am thinking of visiting Prague in January 2007. Is this the best time to see the city? Are major attractions such as the street markets closed at this time of the year? Where is the best area of the city to look for hotels?

Hope someone can help.

Many thanks

So, if you like winter it is nice to see Prague even in winter. And if the winter will be as nice as last year you can see Prague cover by snow what is definitely wonderful.

The most of Prague attractions are open even in January, only the opening hours are reduced.

The Christmas markets in Old Town Square and Wenceslas Square are over but there are all year run street markets like Havelska Market in Prague. My tip, do not forget to try hot wine when walking through Prague.

The best areas to stay in Prague are two. One is Lesser Town – on the left bank of Vltava River between Prague Castle and Charles Bridge. The second is Prague Old Town – on the right bank of Vltava River between Charles Bridge and Wenceslas Square.

Thanks winter season, there are less people and less crowds in Prague and also prices for accommodation are the smallest through all year.
