Hey. Let me introduce you to the lovely Christmas Prague.
The main Christmas tree is at Prague’s astronomical clock square. The center of it all is an enormous three you can see in the photo above. Right in front of the tree is an elevated platform that has incredible views over both Christmas trees and whole markets – but good luck getting there as it’s always so crowded. Don’t get me wrong I totally get those people who spend hours on the platform – if I had such a prestige spot I would not want to move from there either.
I visited Christmas markets in 2018 just once. I and my friend wandered over the markets and bought only alcohol – money well spent. Also, it’s served in so cute cups you can see in the photo below. Otherwise, you can buy a shit ton of food like sausages, baked chestnuts, sweets but the alcohol stands outmatched them all. There are many toys, accessories and souvenirs stalls as well that are just so pretty to look at.
When the sun went down – around 5 o’clock the Christmas tree show program started.
The tree starts to sing traditional Czech Christmas songs that bring so many nostalgic feelings in me. The light show goes on for around 5 minutes and it’s really beautiful. This show plays every day so you can catch it whenever.
In my humble opinion the Christmas three this year is not as pretty as it used to be the years before. I feel like it’s kind of crooked and poorly decorated in comparison with previous years.
I visited Prague Christmas markets for 2 years before and I must say I liked the 2017 Christmas markets the most.
That time I enjoyed the decorations so much, it’s just super cute and huge so it could be seen from everywhere, and here is the photo evidence:
2016 Christmas markets were beautiful as well and it was my first Christmas Prague visit and it will always be special for me. That time I was so sick but our friend comes to visit us from Slovakia. Me and my roommate from back then wanted to show her something pretty but I’ve been stomach sick for a week. I sucked it up and went on this trip anyway. At the end of the day, I ended up throwing up on a train and being sick for another week.
Fun memorable times.
Prague is a spectacular place for a whole year but it’s even more special during Christmas time. Christmas mood begins around the end of November and goes on through the whole of December. Lots of tourists visit Prague during this time. You’ll need to brace yourself for lots of tourists but the final sight will be worth it.
Thank you for your attention
