Prague Christmas Markets

Prague's traditional Christmas markets are a highlight on the country's winter calendar, and tempt passersby with the tantalising aromas of gingerbread, sausages and hot mulled wine. Czech handicrafts such as candles, puppets and wooden toys are for sale at brightly decorated wooden huts, drawing souvenir hunters this way and that while local and international choirs perform stirring Christmas songs in Old Town Square. Other attractions include an open-air ice rink, an enormous Christmas tree ablaze with colourful lights, and a recreation of the Bethlehem manger scene at a wooden stable with live animals.
Venue: Old Town Square, Wenceslas Square
Date: 2 December 2019 to 6 January 2020
