Prague’s Wenceslas Square plays host to a pretty decent Christmas market, but an even better market can be found in the city’s Old Town Square. Really, where would you rather go? To a market located along a street flanked with shops like Sephora and H & M or a market set amidst architectural marvels like St. Nicholas Church or the Church of Our Lady before Týn? I don’t know about you but I’d choose the latter …
I’ve already talked about how special Christmas markets are to me, but I have to admit that I’m starting to experience a certain amount of fatigue with them. It seems the same formula can be applied to Christmas Markets everywhere … hot wine, street meat, stalls full of junk (errr, underwear!), music, big crowds and carnival rides.
Despite this, I love Christmastime in Europe and will continue to visit them whenever possible. The only difference between me one year ago and me today? I no longer have the desire to attend every single one out there and will only head to really nice markets in amazing locations such as the one in Berlin’s Schloss Charlottenburg.
So in Prague’s battle of Christmas markets, the one set in Old Town Square wins.
So you know how I mentioned that stalls at Christmas markets are full of junk. Check out this video for further proof …
