Prague: Christmas Celebrations

Prague is a bustling city with lots to see and do

Prague is abuzz with Christmas-themed activity this time of year. From foods to timing of Christmas tree decorating, public events and celebrations of Christmas Mass, there are many traditions to explore when you’re in the capital city of the Czech Republic over the holidays.

Traditional Foods

Fried carp is a traditional Christmas meal in Prague. You’ll be able to buy fresh carp in the markets of Prague from Dec. 20-23. Tradition says that the carp for the Christmas meal has historically been purchased the week prior to the holiday and kept alive until Christmas, when it will be served. Many restaurants serve special menus on Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and on Dec. 26, but you have to get a reservation early for many of these places.

Christmas Markets

The Christmas Markets in Prague are an impressive, festive component of the holiday season. These markets run from late November through early January. The main markets are open at the Old Town Square, Wenceslas Square and at Havel’s Market, three locations throughout the city. These bustling markets are engaging opportunities for sightseeing and experiencing Czech culture; they are open from Nov. 30, 2013 through Jan. 12, 2014.

At Wenceslas Square, choirs of school children dress in traditional holiday costumes and travel from around the country to present holiday concerts at the Christmas Markets.

At the Christmas markets, you’ll find handcrafted glassware, jewelry, wooden toys, Christmas ornaments and dolls clad in traditional costumes. Not only that, but the markets are a great place to observe when vendors make traditional holiday meals or Czech snacks. Grab a robust Czech beer to wash it all down. Children can create Christmas decorations, watch puppet theater and even explore the Bethlehem scene and animals.
