Christmas in Prague 2023

Prague is a lovely city to spend Christmas in, when it offers even more romantic charm than normal. And there is plenty of sightseeing and entertainment to enjoy.

The Prague Christmas Markets are open every day.

There are fine restaurants and pubs to dine in, and festive performances to attend at the grand concert halls, opera houses and beautiful churches.

With fewer people around, the 24th December is a wonderfully peaceful day to stroll around the city.

On the 25th-26th December, the tourist attractions are open, river cruises are running, and visitors and locals come together to revel in the festive spirit.
