Prague is always a great place to be in December the festive season gets of to a great start with the opening of the traditional Christmas markets. The main markets in Wencelas Square and Old Town Square are a must for anyone spending time here in December; other smaller markets in Namesti Repuliky and Namest Miru are also worth a look and a perfect opportunity to get a glass of hot wine and some delicious roast ham.
Markets are open until Christmas Eve, the Christmas tree at Old Town Square is lit up every night at 5pm and carols are sung daily by choirs from the early afternoon until the evening. All very festive!
