Wondering where to go for a Christmas Holiday? Choose Prague
If Christmas is important to you, and you like to travel to a location that features the true spirit of the holiday season, then you need to book a trip to Prague, this Christmas. Not only will you visit one of the most beautiful Christmas markets, in all of Europe, but you will get to discover the magic that resides on every street of that city, which will remind you of the fairy tales that your mother or father used to read to you, when you were a kid.
Spend Time at the Prague Christmas Market
Chances are that you have probably seen a picture of Staromestske namesti, the historical city centre square, which dates back all the way to around the year 1300. On it you will have seen the Baroque Church of St Nicholas, as it looks over the square with its dark towers. But if the picture was taken in winter, it is probable that it was featuring the Prague Christmas Market. You would have noticed the extra-large Christmas tree and the lines of boutiques, packed-up on the square. But no photograph will ever reflect the sensation that you will find, once you enter Staromestske namesti, and discover the site, live, from your own two eyes. If you are fortunate, snow will be falling from the sky, and the whole sight will cause your heart to skip a beat, at such beauty. That is how amazing the Prague Christmas Market looks.
Roam through the Streets of Old Town
When you pack your suitcase, make sure that you bring warm clothes, as it can get cold. That is especially true, once the sun as gone down. Include gloves and a hat, if you have one, because you won’t want to stop roaming the city streets, even when darkness comes. The lights shining will only enhance the magic that you will find, hidden at each street corner and inside the walls of the buildings, as well. To call Prague a city of fairy tales would be a great description. There is a fascinating darkness that the architecture creates. You will understand it best, as you cross the Charles Bridge, as you head towards the Prague Castle. The life that is found inside the statues that you cross, will be a memory that you will cherish forever, when you go back home.
Enter into Another World inside the Prague Castle
You need to take the time to visit the Prague Castle. It is one of the largest ones in Europe, and it contains a world made of the past, but also of present days, as the government leader still lives there, today. There is so much to see, from a torture room where you will discover all the objects that were used, back in the days, to make people tell their secrets, to others where you will discover how royalty and nobles dressed, in that period of time. You will also get to see another Christmas tree. That is because the spirit of the holiday season lives in Prague, everywhere you go.
