Great news for Christmas lovers – the famous Prague Christmas Markets are set to make their return this year.
The markets will officially be open to the public on Wenceslas Square and Old Town Square from Saturday 27 November to Thursday 6 January.
Last year’s markets in 2020 were, unfortunately, cancelled due to the pandemic that put all our lives on hold.
“We are glad that this year we will be able to offer Praguers and tourists to the traditional Advent celebrations in the center of Prague, and thus contribute to the rebirth of tourism in the capital,” said Libor Votruba, board chairman of Taiko, which organizes markets.
“People will just want to get together in a safe way. We’ll make sure that it’s safe – and just enjoy being human again and enjoying Christmas,” added Votruba.
Christmas markets (Vánoční trhy) are a key ingredient of the festive magic in the Czech Republic, and the Prague markets are the most impressive in the country.
You can find goods such as handmade soaps and lotions, jewelry, wooden toys, ceramic decorations, crystals, scarves and so on.
Food stands are offering grilled meat or sausages; please your sweet tooth with apple strudel, gingerbread, cookies, waffles, roasted almonds, cotton candy.
