We are slowly getting ready for Christmas, starting to think and choose the right ideas for Christmas gifts. Let’s see what else you can experience in Prague before Christmas. What to do in the Czech capital during November?
Strings of Autumn for Music Lovers
From the mid-October to the 13rd November, there will be the 23rd year of the international music festival Strings of Autumn. This year the festival presents such names as the legendary saxophonist Charles Lloyd, the jazz pianist Fredy Hersch, the cellist Jiří Bárta or De La Soul – one of the most famous and influential hip-hop bands, playing in various places across Prague.
Theatre Night 2019
The third Saturday of November traditionally belongs to a project that promotes the theatre world. On the 16th November, in addition to a rich programme of theatres, you will have a unique opportunity to look from a different perspective. Within the Theatre Night there has been prepared an interesting programme and tours to the backstage of the National Theatre. To be able to see the premises for technicians and actors, book your visit in advance.
Christmas markets in Prague
Prague gets into the Christmas spirit by the second half of November. The Christmas market on Náměstí Míru (literally “Peace Square” in Czech) opens the first and it already starts on the 20th November. Next market opens on the 23rd November on Náměstí Republiky (Republic Square).
The closest place where you will experience the Christmas atmosphere is at Dejvice Farmers Market. Experience the inexpressible atmosphere of this market on Vítězné Náměstí (Victory Square) every Saturday. During Advent, the market gets even more beautiful and offers a rich accompanying programme that will draw you into the pre-Christmas spirit.
The Prague Christmas Tree on the Old Town Square (Staroměstské Náměstí) will light up on November 30. Christmas decorations, Advent wreaths, handicrafts and painted tree decoration, candles and much more are available at traditional wooden kiosks. Some of them will attract you by the beauty of their goods, others by their delicious smell of Christmas cookies, gingerbread or mulled wine. There won’t be Christmas carols and live performances of not only children choirs missing.
The Christmas spirit will be also on Wenceslas Square or at the Christmas market at Prague Castle by St. George’s Basilica. The market at Prague Castle is open from Monday to Thursday 9 am – 6 pm or Friday + weekend 9 am – 7 pm.
Residence Břetislavka wishes you many lovely moments in the pre-Christmas Prague.
