Prague’s famous Christmas markets will be open soon – majestic Christmas trees, a stage-set nativity scenes, daily performances by choirs and folk bands, the aroma of freshly baked trdelník and the Old Town Square filled with thousands of lights; Christmas time in Prague begins November 26, 2016.
“Christmas in Prague is simply magical. The cobblestoned streets and roofs covered with snow are so romantic. Winter is one of my favourite times in Prague also because it is not as busy with visitors as in other seasons. Concerts, exhibitions, Christmas markets, roasted chestnuts, mulled wine and more – that’s what I imagine when thinking of perfect winter getaway in Prague,” says Petr Zezula, Chef Concierge at Four Seasons Hotel Prague and President of Les Clefs d’Or for the Czech Republic.
For this festive season, Four Seasons Hotel Prague has created a Prague Christmas Markets package including luxurious accommodations, a horse-drawn carriage ride around the city centre of Prague with roasted chestnuts and mulled wine prepared by the CottoCrudo kitchen team, and an afternoon coffee or tea with a selection of delicious traditional Czech Christmas cookies served in the Hotel Lobby or CottoCrudo bar.
Zezula adds: “The carriage ride ends at the Old Town Square Christmas market, where our guests are free to shop and explore Czech festive traditions. Prague Christmas markets are known as among the most beautiful in Europe, definitely a highlight of our city when visiting in December.”
In addition, Four Seasons Hotel Prague has recently open the new AVA spa, featuring water and mineral rich products, exclusive facial and body treatments, enhanced with state-of-the-art traditional Czech-inspired thermal baths menu, ideal for winter pampering.
