Prague is spectacular at any time of the year, but particularly during winter when temperature drops and city is much quieter than during the rest of the year – ideal time to visit and enjoy traditional Christmas markets.

Christmas markets in Prague are usually happening from December, 3 to December, 24. You can find several markets around the city. The principal ones are in the beautiful Old Town Square and Wenceslas Square. They are close to each other and you can get there easily using public transportation. To get to Old Town Square we recommend to use metro line A to get to the stop – Staroměstská and from the station follow Kaprova street and literally in 5 minutes you will be there. Getting at Wenceslas Square you can take Lines A and C and stop at Muzeum metro station. Alternatively, you can also take Lines A and B and stop at Mustek metro station. In one of the side streets you can also find tram stop Václavské Náměstí, which is serving a lot of trams.
WHAT TO DO AT PRAGUE CHRISTMAS MARKET?
Since they are markets, you can buy unusual glassware and ceramics made in Czechia as a gifts, but the biggest draw is the food. You can try spit-roasted ham, czech beer, mulled wine, medovníky – pastries made with honey, medovina – honeyed wine, barbecued sausage and sauerkraut. But be sure not to miss trdelník – a rolled cake cooked over an open flame and then coated in sugar and ground walnuts.
