Remembering Christmas

If you come to Prague right after New Year's Eve, you can still breath in some of Prague's Christmas atmosphere.The Christmas markets will be on their traditional spots - at Old Town Square or the Prague Castle - till the 6th of January, so there is still time to taste mulled wine or the legendary roasted Prague ham from one of the picturesque stands.

Want to add a little physical activity to Prague's winter atmosphere? There are also many ice skating opportunities around Prague, the most known is the skating rink constructed every Christmas at Ovocný trh near Wenceslas Square.

Prague cultural events in January

After the most packed cultural season in December, filled with Christmas concerts and requiems, in January the cultural scene reboots for yet another year filled up with theatre performances, operas, festivals and shows. If you've never seen a burlesque show, we recommend you to check out the Royal club with its regular titillating performances.

The chilly weather is also ideal to visit some museums and galeries - the DOX Centre for Contemporary Art hosts the most innovative exhibitions, but if you want to check out some time-proven art, visit the House of the Black Madonna with great art deco interiors and specialized expositions. Fans of photography also have the last chance to go through the Czech Press Photo exhibition held every year from October till the end of January at the Old Town Hall.

In Prague, it doesn't matter if it's summer or winter - you can enjoy a wide range of sporting activities all year round. For example the indoor surfing arena gives you the chance to tame the waves and learn some new tricks in the middle of winter, the skydiving simulator lets you experience the feeling of a free fall and flight simulators invite you into the cockpit of jumbo jets and fighter planes.
