Christmas in Prague 2024

Prague is a lovely city to spend Christmas in, when it offers even more romantic charm than normal.

The Prague Christmas Markets are open every day, there is plenty of entertainment and sightseeing to join in with, and there are lots of cosy pubs and fine restaurants to dine in.

Plus, visitors can choose from a range of festive performances in the grand concert halls, ornate opera houses, and beautiful historic 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, all the river cruises are running, and visitors and locals come together to revel in the festive spirit.
