And the magical Christmas front runner is… Look Prague just gets Christmas okay? Some might say that Prague is eternally Christmassy with its cobbled streets, quaint town buildings and twinkling lights. Dreaming of a white Christmas? Prague might be just the place – the temperatures in December are often below freezing so snow is always possible! In fact, here’s what to pack if you’re heading for a winter trip.
The Christmas markets in Prague are phenomenal, with the main ones held at Wenceslas Square and the Old Town Square (just a 5-minute walk from each other). In the Old Town Square, you’ll also find the mighty Christmas tree – from the forests of the Liberec region in the Czech Republic, of course. The lights are switched on at 4.30pm every day and it’s an amazing sight against the stark, Gothic skyline, which makes Prague one of the best places to visit in December, as well. With so many attractions and events going on, there’s always something to do in Prague for Christmas.
December often attracts a crowd as more of us are catching on that Prague’s Christmas market is one of Europe’s best! So, plan in advance and try to stay somewhere near Old Town Square, so you can easily stroll to the Christmas market.
