The Christmas markets are open, the choirs are singing, and the Old Town Square is filled with thousands of lights; this is Christmas time in Prague.
“Christmas in Prague is simply magical. The cobblestoned streets and roofs covered with snow are so romantic. Winter is my favourite time in Prague also because it is not as busy with visitors as in other seasons. Concerts, exhibitions, Christmas markets, roasted chestnuts, mulled wine and more – that’s what I imagine when thinking of perfect winter getaway in Prague,” says Petr Zezula, chef concierge at Four Seasons Hotel Prague and president of Les Clefs d’Or for the Czech Republic.
For this festive season, Four Seasons Hotel Prague has created a Prague Christmas Markets package including luxurious accommodations, a horse-drawn carriage ride around the city centre of Prague with roasted chestnuts and mulled wine prepared by the CottoCrudo kitchen team, and an afternoon coffee or tea with a selection of delicious Christmas cupcakes served in the Hotel Lobby.
Zezula adds: “The carriage ride ends at the Old Town Square Christmas market, where our guests are free to shop and explore Czech festive traditions.” The package is based on minimum stay of two nights with rates starting at EUR 285.00 and is available from the end of November until January 6, 2014.
“Travel and Leisure and The Telegraph voted Prague’s Christmas markets one of the top in Europe and definitely worth a visit,” notes Zezula.
Four Seasons Hotel Prague has also prepared a wide variety of festivities including Christmas menus, live concerts in the Lobby and New Year’s Eve celebration for the season.
