Events in Prague in December

For many people, December is all about Christmas markets and shopping. All of us are looking forward to this time of the year when everything glows and even the smallest corner of the city feels festive.  The biggest Christmas market takes place at Old Town Square (2nd of December 2017 – 6th of January 2018). Beautifully decorated Christmas tree and Christmas crib attract the attention of both children and adults. Besides the variety of food such as sausages, traditional Czech sweets or mulled wine, visitors can enjoy a continuous program composed in Christmas style.


If you can't get enough of the Christmas atmosphere, you can just wander around the city and you definitely find many more markets everywhere. One of the best is at Prague Castle (26th November 2017 – 6th January 2018). We love this one not only for its venue but also because you can easily leave the crowds behind and undisturbedly immerse yourself in the holiday atmosphere.

Do you admire the fragile beauty of ballerinas? So you have a perfect opportunity to visit one of the best world's ballets. Everybody knows the famous story of princess Odette and brave prince Siegfried. Swan Lake from Russian composer Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky is a classic piece that can't disappoint anyone. And if it is presented by Moscow City Ballet Group in Prague Congress Centre, it is a guarantee of a great evening just before Christmas Eve. So don't hesitate and save the date 22nd of December for this experience of a lifetime.

Romantic December in Prague

If you want to escape from the crowds of the city centre and get a view of Advent Prague from a different perspective, don't forget to book a Vltava river cruise. Relax on a festively decorated boat while watching the breathtaking sceneries of winter Prague. Together with mulled wine, delicious sweets and traditional Czech Christmas carols, it is the best way how to make the most of your stay in Prague.

Active December in Prague

Are you coming to Prague with kids or you just want to enjoy romantic moments with your loved ones while ice-skating? You will find many open-air ice skating rinks around Prague every winter. There is always one at Ovocný trh which is in the very center of Prague. It´s for free, you just pay for the skates rental. Another interesting place where to ice-skate is under the Žižkov Tv Tower. The entrance fee is 250 CZK for the whole family plus 50 CZK for the skate rental. If you get cold, you can warm up with some hot drink in the Miminoo restaurant which is just beside the ice rink. Or you can take 736 steps up the TV Tower (there is a lift for lazy ones) and have some warm drink or a snack in the cafe on the top of the tower. Easy to reach by the public transport is the ice skating rink at Letná. It is located opposite the Sparta football stadium. If you want to escape from the crowds in the center, there are more ice rinks outside the center of Prague, e.g. Na Františku (behind the Old Town hospital) or on the rooftop of the shopping mall Harfa.
