You Must Not Miss the Christmas Markets
There are plenty of Christmas markets in Prague and all of them extremely sparkly and magical. An excellent advantage to the Prague Christmas Markets is that they actually continue in January, into advent season. The Old Town Square market is right in the center of the city and it is the most popular one of all. The Wenceslas Square is a lot smaller than the Old Town, but still very beautiful and charming. You should also visit the Peace Square market and the Christmas Market at Prague Castle. Once you arrive here prepare to get mulled wine-drunk at these amazing markets. Just make sure you wear very warm clothes and boots as the temperatures in Prague in December are very low.
Celebrate Christmas Traditions in Prague
If you decide to visit Prague in December then we recommend you to kick off the lovely Christmas season on St. Nicholas Eve. In the city’s Old Town Square, Mikulas, and his sidekicks, a devil and an angel, will prowl the visitors candy and treats, and the whole atmosphere is indeed magical.
Warm Up with a Delicious Czech Beer
