Christmas in Prague is a wonderful time of the year. The city is transformed into a winter wonderland offering something for every visitor.
The main attractions are the Christmas markets located all around the city. Two of the largest markets, Old Town Square and Wenceslas Square, are located just around the corner from each other and offer a variety of stands with homemade crafts, hot mulled wine and delicious treats. Stop by Old Town Square and grab a hot drink and enjoy the beautiful decorations. If you have a sweet tooth and enjoy cinnamon rolls, try a local traditional pastry, Trdelnik, that is made over open hot coal.
If you enjoy being active, take a stroll through the city. Prague is gorgeous, but a covering of snow brings even more magic to the city. When you get too cold to continue exploring the city, hop into one of the many cafés and grab a hot chocolate, coffee or tea.
For those who love ice skating, do not forget to check out the local outdoor rinks that pop up in the winter time. You can find these in various locations such as: Wenceslas Square and Žižkov – located under the TV tower.
These are only a few suggestions for activities during the holiday season here in Prague, the list is endless. Get out and enjoy one of the best times of the year. Oh, and do not forget December 5th is St. Nicholas Eve, you will see Mikulas and his angel and devil roaming the city passing out candy to children.
