Prague’s annual Christmas markets are traditionally held in Old Town Square and Wenceslas Square. This year they will be opened on the 26th of November, which is also the beginning of the advent season. At the same time, a huge Christmas tree will be erected, which will decorate Prague city until January. This tree, over 22 metres high and set against a dark gothic skyline, will be lit up on the Old Town Square during the opening of the Christmas market and will stay there until it finishes on 1st January. At Wenceslas Square, the market will stay open until the 8th of January. On weekdays, the markets will be open from 9 am till 7 pm, and during the weekends, they will stay open until 8 pm (food stands until midnight). Prague Christmas markets are part of everyone’s visit to Prague during this time. It is a wonderful treat to enjoy various shows, taste traditional Czech food, grab a warm drink, soak up the atmosphere, and buy handmade souvenirs and crafts.
