Christmas Markets in Prague

I am not the biggest fan of the winter, but the Prague around Christmas time is just magical. Prague Christmas markets belong rightfully among the best in Europe! If you are visiting Prague at this time of the year, check my list of Christmas Markets. If you have any questions, feel free to send me message or let me know in the comment section 🙂

Christmas Markets in Prague:

⋆ Old Town Square ⋆

Christmas Market in Old Town Square is the most famous and popular one. You can recognize it easily from a number of people visiting it every day 🙂 Therefore, for somebody who hates crowds (like me) it might be a quite stressful experience. But at least once in a Christmas time every year, I am going to visit it. The reason why I am going there every year is that the Christmas tree is always so beautiful and worth to see (and suffer from the crowds).

Directions: Nearest tram stop is “Staroměstská” (same as nearest metro station, line A)

Dates for the upcoming season: 2nd December 2017 – 6th January 2018, 10 a.m. – 10 p.m.

⋆ Wenceslas Square ⋆

The market in Wenceslas Square is smaller than the one in the Old Town Square. This iconic Prague long square looks so nice when the trees are covered with Christmas lights! Wenceslas Square is to me most beautiful at this time of the year. After enjoying the market atmosphere I can recommend you to stop to my most favourite cafe in this area: Styl&Interiér.

Directions: Nearest tram stop is “Václavské náměstí”, nearest metro station “Můstek” – line A & B

Dates for the upcoming season: 2nd December 2017 – 6th January 2018, 10 a.m. – 10 p.m.

⋆ Republic Square ⋆

Every year you can find markets also in Republic Square, right in front of shopping mall Palladium (which is quite handy if you need to do also some Christmas gifts shopping 🙂 – although this shopping centre is due to its central location always overcrowded and in Christmas time is quite crazy there I dare to say. If you search for some less stressful shopping venues check the malls in outskirts of Prague. My favourite one is shopping mall called “OC Černý Most” – easily accessible with metro B to the station Černý Most).

Directions: Nearest tram stop is “Náměstí Republiky” (same as nearest metro station, line B)

Dates for the upcoming season: 2nd December 2017 – 6th January 2018, 10 a.m. – 10 p.m.

⋆ Peace Square ⋆

Christmas markets in Piece Square are for sure my most favourite ones. Is it a place where most of the locals hang out. It has so nice atmosphere. Just imagine, little square with stunning neo-gothic basilica, huge Christmas tree, nicely decorated stalls, lots of Christmas lights and smell of mulled wine. This is just (Prague) Christmas perfection.

Directions: Nearest tram stop is “Náměstí Míru” (same as nearest metro station, line A)

Dates for the upcoming season: 20th November – 24th December 2017, 10 a.m. – 7 p.m.

So these are the main Chrismas markets in Prague, but you can find other, smaller, all over the city. You can check for example those in Prague Castle, Tyl Square, Jiřího z Poděbrad Square or the one in Anděl. I hope you will enjoy Prague Christmas Markets as much as I do. Do not forget to get a cup of mulled wine and piece of Trdelník (sweet pastry made from rolled dough).

    Naprosto nádherný fotky, úplně “to” na mě dejchlo! 🙂 Letos konečně trhy v Praze stihnu, jedeme tam pár dní před Štědrým dnem. Už se nemůžu dočkat! Ale asi tam bude dost přelidněno… :))

      Moc děkuji, Terko! 🙂 Moc si užij trhy, ano, bude tam přelidněno, ale jednou za rok se to dá přežít, za tu atmosféru to stojí 🙂

    I would love to be able to make it to Europe for all of the Christmas markets. I’m not a big fan of the cold, so I really don’t know how I would do. Have to take it in small doses I guess. LOL. I love how the Prague booths seem to look so natural with their decorations. Just lovely. Thanks for posting, I’ll be saving it for later.
