The market in the breathtaking Vorosmarty Square is stunning. Take a stroll around the stalls and peruse the hand produced gifts and decorations on offer, while indulging in some strudel and a steaming mug of mulled wine.


The city has an impressive six markets to choose from, here are the top three:

Neumarkt is the oldest, most traditional market.

Alter Markt is the most attractive market, situated in front of the town hall. It’s great for kids with a nostalgic roundabout, puppet theatre and Santa’s Grotto.

Cathedral Market has 160 attractively designed wooden pavilions in front of the awesome cathedral.


The main market fills the Rynek square and is fantastic for bargain gifts and decorations, from woollen slippers to amber jewellery. Don’t miss the delicious sausages and fried oscypek cheese.


Prague ’s Christmas market bustles with shoppers eager to bag some Christmas bargains. In the cobbled square of the Old Town you will find scented candles, intricate glasswork, corn on the cob and some amazing puppets.


This market is an unforgettable experience where the smell of punch, roasted almonds and baked apples will entice you to indulge your taste buds. With a soundtrack of carolling concerts this market offers decorations, toys, cosy winter jumpers and much more.

Get booking your cheap flight to these great destinations and experience a magical start to the Christmas season!
