There is plenty of tasty food available from the Christmas market stalls, but it is important to know that the famous Prague ham, roasted to perfection over an open fire, is sold by weight and not at a fixed price per portion.
1. Old Town Square
The largest of all the Christmas markets in Prague, right in the heart of the city, is on Old Town Square and features live music and an enormous Christmas tree. Make sure to be at the full hour near the Astronomical clock to hear its sweet tune and see the famous figurines moving.
2. Prague Castle
What better place to experience the magic of Christmas than in the grounds of the largest castle in Europe? Buy handmade Christmas decorations and sip mulled wine whilst gazing over the city. For the best view go to the west end of the castle complex.
3. Náměstí Republiky
This square, close to the metro station of the same name, is easily reached by metro or tram. It features a petting zoo and is a favorite with families. It is less crowded and prices here tend to be more moderate, making it the preferred Christmas market in Prague for many thrifty Czechs.
