In some of these parts of the city, almost causing us to believe we’ve gone back in time hundreds of years ago.

Four weekends before Christmas are installed throughout the city’s Christmas markets, where we can go buy all food and drink typical of the Czech region as well as all kinds of gift items (glass, toys, mugs, scarves, etc …) remain installed until early January.

The most popular markets are in the Old Town Square and Wenceslas Square, where they sell Christmas items distributed from 70 to 80 stands. The smaller ones are found at Namesti Republiky and Namesti Miru Havelská Trziste and are all easily accessible by subway. All of them are usually open from 9:00 to 19:00.

Like if you do not plan to buy anything, it is recommended as a spin just to see the decoration, especially in the Old Town Square, where they put the Christmas tree say involves 100,000 light bulbs, a sight to behold, especially since the backdrop is the Tyn Church, offering a whole one of the best views of the city.
