Christmas Markets come to Prague every winter, usually when the snow covers the street and the walks around Prague are even more romantic thanks to earlier dark. This year - one of the hottest over a long period of time acress whole Europe - the snow has not come yet. But the markets arrived on time, four weeks ahead the Christmas Eve, on 2 Dec 2006. And the walks by Prague do not lost the romance!

Markets belong to the Czech festive magic and you wil find them on the Old Town Square and the Wenceslas Square. But there are also smaller ones: you can find them around Prague, for example on the Namesti Republiky, Havelske Trziste, or Namesti Miru.

The central point of the Old Town Square now is the Christmas Tree, decorated with hundreds of lights, 22 meters tall and more than 100 years old, was officially lit on ceremonial opening.

There are lots of news on the Squares this year. The Christmas stalls got entirely new design and were arranged to make the Old Town Square easily to pass through. The organizers also promised wider range of refreshments, from non-alcoholic drinks to popular punch and mull wine or warm honey liquor.

In the afternoons you can listen to the choir music related to Christmas time (on the Old Town Square).
