How to celebrate Christmas in the Czech Republic – Prague and provinces

Probably, if you go to the Czech Republic, then in the winter before Christmas. Or already in summer when it’s warm and everything is green. For me, this is the 2 best periods. for the trip. In the summer I will just go, but before Christmas as was recently. I’ll try to tell you how it was, the more I visited not only in Prague, but also in several cities, including very small.

My trip was part of a blog tour, where I and more several people from other countries officially invited from Ministry of Tourism of the Czech Republic. All the details on the link are very an interesting journey out.

Christmas in Prague

Probably Christmas in Prague is the most trivial thing that can happen. you happen when traveling to europe. Well, you know, some travelers say “fu” when it comes to Prague. Like, too touristy, not real, and Christmas markets are no match German. There are even trips to Dresden from Prague, where all should be more Christmas, more colorful, more “toy”. I do not argue, Germany is so, very often her towns, as from a box. However, Prague will also appeal to many. Do not listen to others, go and see for yourself whether it comes to you or not. I think it is always worth checking everything out in your own experience, otherwise it’s all listen, so generally you can stay at home.

I recommend to go to Christmas Prague, however as well as to any another city, 3 weeks before Christmas. The city will be already decorated markets are all deployed, New Year’s atmosphere is present, and people not so much yet. As an option, do not hang out in the center on central square, and choose the markets a little further away. But I noticed such a thing that if walking in the center not at the weekend, then at the beginning and mid December is quite normal. Apparently on the weekends themselves local are chosen (or, for example, tourists from Germany come) and people dark.

Christmas in Brno

Brno is the second largest city in the Czech Republic. Less populous, less tourist, more spacious, and deprived of the attention of Russian tourists (if it is important to whom). But you know, he seemed to me personally. less elegant or something, and in general, some more simple. Architecture not as a whole, as many would like to see. Whether the old city much smaller in size, or in general more buildings in the style functionalism instead of baroque.

Christmas in Liberec

This city is even smaller than Brno. And so the old city can get around 30 minutes. If you are not interested in sights, then 1-2 days is enough for the eyes. But all small towns have their own charm. And in Liberec, I would recommend climbing at least to Ještěd, this is a mountain such a tower, in which there is a restaurant and a hotel for several numbers. From there, the views are good and the architecture of the tower unusual. I will write later about it separately. Romantic hotel where it makes sense to spend the night at least one day.

Christmas in Valasske Klobouki

And lovers of something authentic, calm, and not at all tourist, worth visiting in very small towns, almost townships. For me, Valašské Klobouky has become such a city, still the name can not utter without prompting. Lives there about 5000 inhabitants in total. I do not think that there are often tourists especially Russians. But on Christmas there are going to a lot of local people. surrounding villages and cities to the fair (essentially Christmas market). There was not a single tourist. It seemed to me that even the Czech there were no tourists, but rather residents. But there were a lot of people square.

Streakwood, various souvenirs, blacksmith shoeing a horse, devils in different funny costumes. Well, and, of course, everything is so small, not pretentious. I personally really enjoyed this trip, given that there we rode on a real steam train from the museum. He walks once a year. this route. I was told that in other provinces too steam locomotives, but how to find out specifics and buy tickets, no one knows
