Prague Christmas Markets 2007

2007-12-01 08:00:00

This year's traditional Prague Christmas Markets will run from Saturday, 1st December, 2007 to Tuesday, 1st January, 2008 on the Old Town Square and the Wenceslas Square.

Market is dominated by a Christmas tree adorned with hundreds of lights and is lit every evening at dusk. This year's Christmas tree is an 80-years old pine which is 22-meters tall and was brought to Prague from the East-Bohemian Krkonose Mountains. Christmas markets will also have a different colour scheme than a year ago, when the decorations and tree were set in blue and silver. This year's dominant colour scheme will consist of red, gold and silver.

The Christmas tree on the Old Town Square will be lit to officially mark the beginning of the Christmas Markets in Prague on Saturday, 1st December, at 5 PM.

Strolling around 80 stands with the traditional Czech handicraft products as Christmas ornaments, wooden toys, glass jewelry, ceramic beer mugs or scarves as well as food and drink stands with mpancakes pastries and other local Christmas favourites, visitors can enjoy Christmas concerts, choirs and various theatre or folclore shows on the main stage situated just besides the Christmas tree.

Mr. Libor Votruba, director of TAIKO, the company that organizes Prague Christmas Markets 2007, says: "The Christmas market will be almost the same as last year. We just added some new food stands with traditional Czech food since in previous years, visitors to the market recommended that we bring more Czech specialities like 'staroceske trdlo' and 'babiccina placka', and so on. So we brought more food of this kind. We also re-organized some of the stalls so that Old Town Square is more spacious for people to move around and feel more comfortable."
