The Prague Christmas is undoubtedly the winter’s main event. The markets consist of brightly decorated wooden huts selling traditional handicrafts such as glassware, embroidered lace, wooden toys, ceramics, candles, Christmas tree decorations, hats, gloves and scarves, puppets and dolls which are dressed in traditional costumes. All these sounds, scents, and sights of the season focus on the Old Town Square, where an annual market, complete with decorations prides on. Shops, people watching and enjoying holiday pastries and hot wine, listening to Christmas carols, and also taking photographs – everything belongs to the Prague Christmas Market.

Prague Nativity Scenes
Nativity scenes can be live or crafted out of wood, straw, or other materials. These nativity scenes form a part of the Prague winter landscape and are especially popular with children. The biggest exhibition of Nativity scenes in Prague (it is thirty years old) can be found in the Bethlehem Chapel (which is a place where Jan Hus used to preach). This was prepared by some enthusiasts who were working the project from its start. Visitors can see mainly contemporary Nativity scenes, such as the Old Town one, together with pieces carved from wood and other materials.
