Reasons to visit Prague in Winter

There are a ton of reasons why winter is the best season to visit Prague. Crowds are smaller, and snow settles on the various historic landmarks which simply adds to the beauty of the City of a Hundred Spires. It goes without saying that the Christmas markets are a must-see, but you'll also want to visit Prague Castle, resembling something of a wintry magic kingdom during the chillier months! Take a lamplight-lit evening walk down Charles Bridge, or take to the skates on a frosty Vltava River.

What to buy at Prague Christmas Markets

There's no better place to get that warm and fuzzy feeling during the holiday season than at a Christmas market, and the city of Prague certainly knows how to entertain at these! Browse through the wooden chalets selling local handcrafts, ceramics and jewellery (perfect for gifting!), or fill your stomachs with barbecued sausages, sweet dumplings and pancakes - our mouths are watering just at the thought! Wash it all down with a famous Czech beer, mulled wine or hot chocolate, and we can see why they call it the most wonderful time of the year.
