Christmas markets hold a special place in Europeans’ hearts. Maybe it’s the Old City lit up by lamplight and Christmas lights, and the wooden stands showcasing handmade goods and homemade goodies. Maybe it’s the tranquil vibe emanating from the market area, despite all the bustle. Or maybe it’s the smell of roasted nuts, a properly spiced mulled wine, gingerbread, and cut pine. All of these add something unique to an already intriguing city, so let’s navigate with you through oft-missed parts of Prague — with a few treats along the way!
