Enjoy the charming atmosphere in Prague during Advent and Christmas time. Christmas markets in Prague are among the best known in Europe. Old Town Square, Wenceslas Square and Republic Square these are the places where Prague celebrates Advent and Christmas. Let yourself be drawn into tradition, a rich cultural encounter, a glittering atmosphere and taste typical Christmas gastronomic specialties. You will find plenty of stalls selling Christmas decorations and ornaments, candles, candy, gingerbread, and small gifts. The Old Town Square Christmas market is the prettiest and busiest one in Prague. Little stalls are nestled around the Jan Hus statue and surrounded by centuries old Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque architecture.

A 'winter wonderland' awaits you at the Prague Christmas Markets, which run daily throughout the Christmas season. The main markets are held at the Old Town Square and Wenceslas Square, with smaller ones at Republic Square and Havel's market. All are within a few minutes walk of each other. The Prague Christmas markets consist of brightly decorated wooden huts selling traditional Czech products from handicrafts and hot food (sausages, corn on the cob, pastries and local specialties), to cool Czech beers and warm drinks. Outdoor Christmas shopping is so much nicer with a cup of hot wine (svařené víno or svařák) in your hand!

The Christmas markets (Vanocni trhy) are a key ingredient of the festive magic in the Czech Republic. They light up the city, bringing locals and tourists together in a true 'winter wonderland' setting. The Prague Christmas markets are open every day from 01 December 2018 to 06 January 2019, including on Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and New Year's Day. The main markets are held at the Old Town Square and Wenceslas Square (just a 5 minutes walk from each other). There are also markets held at Republic Square, at Havel's Market, on Kampa Island, and on the square in front of St. George's Basilica at Prague Castle.
