I’ll greet you at the meeting point on Wenceslas Square and from there it will be a leisurely tour as follows:
With a 3pm start we begin in the daylight and go off the beaten path into one of the passages on the square to see some modern art.
When we come back onto Wenceslas Square it’ll be getting darker and I’ll show you what to expect from the markets including souvenirs, food/drink and the “Czech” Christmas Day. Here you’ll learn what to look out for and how “pay-by-weight” works.
We’ll stay off the beaten path to get over to our next Christmas Market but not before you’ve had a chance to see one of Prague’s hidden artistic masterpieces.
At Republic Square we’ll stop for your choice of food and drink from the street stalls which is included in the price. The choice of food and drink is from any stall at Republic Square. Old Prague Ham (200g), Hot Dog, Bramborák, Langoše, Halušky (200g), potato twirls, corn-on-the-cob, toasted almonds etc. The drink choice will include hot or cold beverage, alcoholic or non-alcoholic, beer (0.5L), mulled wine (0.2L), cider (0.2L) or medovina (0.2L).
Then we’ll explore parts of the Jewish Quarter before making our way onto the Old Town Square to learn about the Christmas Tree, see it in all it’s glory and arrive in time for the sound/light show if we time it right.
Throughout the tour you’ll be learning about some of our local Christmas traditions. Like the sound of it? Use the Calendar below to Select Date, Select Time and the required tickets.
