While visiting Prague in early December (2010), I visited the Christmas market at Wenceslas Square, and made my way eventually to the (larger) Christmas market at Old Town Square (Vánoční trhy na Staroměstském náměstí).
Prague’s Old Town Square is one of the oldest parts in Prague where the original charter or incorporation as the city we know today was created. The present-day version of Old Town Square is one of the most important public areas in the city. Regardless of the time of year, no festival is too large to be held in this beautiful historical square.
It might be cold at this time of year, but everyone’s out having a good time with some svařené víno (mulled wine), klobása (sausage), or pečené kaštany (roasted chestnuts). If the wine’s too much, there’s always punč (punch) or čaj (tea) to sip on and stay warm.
So grab a drink, walk around, and have a look at the lights and fixtures at the Christmas market in Prague’s Old Town Square.
