City Breaks in Prague
For many decades during the Gothic and Renaissance eras, Prague was the permanent seat of two Holy Roman Emperors and thus was also the capital of the Holy Roman Empire.
Situated on the Vltava River in central Bohemia, Prague has been the political, cultural and economic centre of the Czech state for more than 1100 years. Since 1992, the extensive historic centre of Prague has been included in the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites, making this city a really popular destination. This is a great destination for a cultural visit, a Christmas Market..... a great place to take the family to a water park and you can also do a cycling tour from here.
Our City breaks can be offered for 2 nights with transfers from the airport - there is an excellent network of flights from the UK into Prague - if you would like us to send the flight options for your area - contact us from here providing details as to dates, group size and from where you can fly
Christmas Market in Prague
The largest Christmas market in Prague is located in the central square of the Old Town. There is also a traditional Christmas Market on Wenceslas Square.
There are numerous stalls that open from 1 December 2012 - 6 January 2013 late in November and run into the New Year - they remain open on Christmas eve, Christmas day and New years day.
The markets consist of brightly decorated, wooden huts selling a variety of traditional handcrafted Czech products, such as wooden toys, jewellery, embroidery, ceramic plates and mugs, scented candles, hats, gloves and scarves, puppets and dolls, and of course Christmas tree ornaments. We are confident this will resolve any Christmas presents needed.
Alongside the sparkling rows of decorated stalls you’ll find Christmas concerts and festive plays as well as a live nativity scene with donkeys, sheep and goats!
Of course there is also the usual fayre of food and drink and often you can see the large hams roasting on spits.
