Do You Igloo? Holiday Time in Style at Prague’s Manifesto Markets

Already redesigned for an all-weather cozy experience, Manifesto Markets in Smichov and Florenc created a magical holiday experience.

Winter holiday-styled market will be inaugurated on November 20th at both locations, complete with Christmas trees, lights and aromatic traditional drinks and food. The remaining weeks until the end of this year are the last opportunity to explore Manifesto Smichov, covered recently by Dezeen for its design and architectural qualities.

At Smichov, six igloos will be surrounded by containers decorated with ribbon, turning them into giant “gift boxes”. On January 2nd, Manifesto Smichov will close at its current location, as originally planned. At Manifesto Florenc, the designers are adding vintage chandeliers above its iconic long communal table, covered with a fabric roof. As a gift to the visitors, Manifesto will host several free concerts and music nights.

A five-meter tree from Czech countryside will be lit-up for the first time on Wednesday Nov 20th, at both locations, and powered by renewable energy from Nano Energies.

Visitors can book cozy transparent igloos on GoOut.

Czech-made red-white porcelain cups adorned with Manifesto’s iconic design replace single-use cups for enjoying mulled wine and drinks.

To help navigate the new seasonal menus, visitors can scan QR codes on each table and get inspired by the most popular and recommended meals. Manifesto remains open Wed-Sun 11am-10pm, through November and December.

“The winter redesign will take more than three weeks to be ready for guests on November 20th. Manifesto Winter Market will be open for six weeks, bringing people and families together until the end of the year. From DATE Manifesto Florenc will be taking on a ski break and Manifesto Smichov pop-up will close at its current location. In the city, you don’t have to go to the mountains to have winter fun. We’ve created a unique environment to enjoy fresh air in the city,” explains Martin Barry, founder of the food and culture market drawing on his experience of designing year-round public spaces in Canada and other cold-weather countries.

What’s new: our picks

At both markets, heated domes – igloos – can be booked on GoOut. Newly this season, you can wrap yourself in brand new Manifesto blankets and some igloos come together with a chilled bottle of Veuve Clicquot champagne.

On the culture side, Manifesto Smichov will present live music and DJs on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays and Manifesto Florenc will continue to host Friday Nightmarket with live music, on top of special highlights of the Fall season. Events line-up is available at the new website
