Prague's Christmas markets are the bomb
Out of all the markets on offer at this time of year, Prague has to be one of my favourites, not least because it stays relatively quiet for the time the stalls there, which - let me assure you - does not mean that it offers products that are inferior in quality. Quite the opposite and travel search engine nowfly.co.uk agrees with me. According to Easier Travel, the company says that the market's less hectic atmosphere means that it is much more pleasant for browsing around the different shops.
And, once the purchasing bug has been well and truly sated (or you've run out of money), gorging yourself on sausages and corn on the cob, as well as locally produced mulled wine (known as sva¬_ene vino) is surely an inevitability. If you plan your trip well, you'll get to see the big tree that takes up residence there each year have its lights switched on. It's brought out of the mountains in the north every December and gets lit up daily at around 17:00 local time.
Even better, World-first.co.uk recently reported that Prague is a great place to go if bargain hunting is your bag as there are lots of deals to be had, particularly in Parizska, which has lots of designer boutiques.
