As Czech Republic’s capital city, Prague has much to offer all-year round. The landscape consists of stunning architecture, historical buildings including the largest ancient castle in the world, breathtaking natural elements and more.
But something magical happens each time during winter. The city turns into a fairytale snow-covered architecture where a blanket of white covers the gorgeous structures all around. The enchanting city comes alive with an aura of mystery with romantic vibes, but the festivities and excitement from locals and tourists also balance that charm nicely for a perfect traveling experience.
Everywhere you go during winter time, especially December to early January, there will be Christmas markets everywhere. And Prague’s Christmas markets are considered as some of the best ones in the whole of Europe.
Take a stroll around the Old Town Square or other areas, and you won't be able to escape these heart-warming town activities. Expect to see giant Christmas tree decked in the most spectacular lightings and decorations. Performances are ready to entertain on the center stage, be it from children choir to light shows, while food stalls serving warm Czech stews or gravy soup.
The best thing about being a tourist during winter in Prague doesn’t just stop at the Christmas scene or the events. It is also considered low season ( except for the time near Christmas or 3rd week of December), so you can expect fewer crowds and cheaper accommodation. Most of the prices are still half the price of half season!
So, if you’re looking to spend the best winter holiday ever. It’s no exaggeration to say that Prague is one of the most worthy destination ever. Wake up to a Gothic architecture in the distance while the glistening snow and gentle fog enveloped your view with mystery, it’s going to a holiday treat that’ll stay with you forever.
