The Enchanting Prague Christmas Market
If you’re up for a trip across the Channel, then the chocolate box fantasy of Prague and its Christmas Market is not to be missed.
During the festive season, the Czech Republic’s capital becomes home to some of Europe’s best Christmas markets with colourful, twinkling light displays and breathtaking Christmas trees.
Prague already boasts a reputation as a beautiful city with its picturesque Old Town and enchanting buildings, however there’s something particularly magical about it at Christmas.
If you’ve ever enjoyed belting out a good Christmas carol, you’ll probably be familiar with the verse; “Good King Wenceslas last looked out on the feast of Stephen. Where the snow lay round about, deep and crisp and even”.
The square named after this royal legend is the location of the dazzling Christmas Market.
