In Prague Christmas Markets go on for the whole month of December, giving tourists and residents a “Wonderland” winter to remeber. Thousand of visitors come every year to breathe the magical atmosphere of this unique city, strolling around the stalls and relieving their spirit with Christmas songs, food and mulled wine.
Christmas Markets (Váno?ní) are an essential ingredient for the Feast. The lights of markets lighten up the Old Town Square and Venceslao Square, whereas some stalls also reach the areas of Havelské Trziste & Namesti Republiky (just a 10 minute walk from one to the other).
Christmas Markets in Prague are made up by wooden colourful mountain huts, where typical products of the Czeckish craftsmanship, warm dishes (corns, sausages and local specialties), beers and warm drinks like the sva?ené víno and sva?ák are sold.
Among the most valuable craftsman products, worthy of mention are the Bohemian crystals, the wooden toys, traditional puppets, scented candels, pottery, handmade jewels, hats, scarfs and Christmas decorations.
Children and adulta can admire farm animals like sheep and goats in the Old Town Square, and even a lama!
