Another new location opening for Green Motion!
Green Motion grows again!
Surely, there is nowhere prettier in the snow than Prague with its beautifully preserved antique streets - like a fairytale – and festive Christmas markets where cinnamon-scented rolls (known as Trdelník) and too much mulled wine (known as svařák) makes you purchase strange and quirky presents and way too many Christmas decorations. There are several Christmas markets in Prague, with the market in the Old Town Square being the largest and most well-known.
Although pretty, do be aware that Prague is also very cold in December, which only makes its richly decorated restaurants seem all the cosier. Sit in its Art Nouveau interior cafes or trendy underground bars where you can warm yourself with roast game and wine.
If you’re travelling with children, or are a big kid yourself, then we’d recommend that you spend some time at Prague Zoo (voted the 4th best zoo in the world). In winter, the zoo features a Christmas program which is great even without the kids, you just need to be an animal lover.
And if you’re in Prague on the 5th of December, don’t miss out on seeing St Nicholas (Mikuláš). St Nicholas, or Mikuláš, is usually accompanied by devils and angels who come to find children who have been naughty as well as children who deserve a treat. The Mikuláš tradition is usually staged in every square of the Christmas market where you can see them roaming the streets.
Lastly, what is a winter paradise without some ice-skating? Prague has a number of good ice-skating spots, such as the Ovocný trh which is usually less busy or head to Prague 3 where you can skate under the giant TV Tower.
Winter, specifically Christmas, in Prague is absolutely stunning, helping you to recapture the magic of the Christmas season.
