A silver Christmas in Prague
Dearest friends, Christmas is almost here and I don’t know about you, but I simply can’t wait! The time to celebrate and feel like a child again is almost here and I love every single little aspect, from the air of peace that seems to fill everyone to the colorful boisterous (though allegedly pagan traditions of the season.
Christmas is also a time to dream and reminisce with a cup of coffee, so today I’d like to invite you on tour of one of Europe’s most beautiful and romantic cities. Let’s dream of a silver Christmas in Prague!
The capital city of the Czech Republic, as I am sure you remember we discussed, is one gem among cities, with medieval architecture, magical cruises along the Vltava River and lively markets with traditional products. You can enjoy all the attractions of this town dipped in history if you plan your winter holidays here.
If you are indeed considering travelling to Prague, you may want to take warm clothes with you, since temperatures go well below 0 degrees Celsius in December here and there are always chances of snow.
If it is snowing, however, don’t be frightened by the cold and damp, but take the chance to visit one of the coffee shops and bars in town. Of course, you can stop by the (already) legendary Mala Strana Prague, the favorite abode of Soldier Svejk. But there are also plenty of other options, small pastry shops where you can taste traditional pies and taste the sweet Pilsner beer.
Christmas Markets are also great here, and we recommend visiting at least the biggest ones, in the Old Town Square and also in Wenceslas Square. They are open until January 6th, so you’ve got plenty of time to travel around Prague and spend silver Christmas here!
