Manifesto Market reopens for the city’s first alternative Christmas Market.

Staroměstské náměstí (Old Town Square)

Through January 6
10:00 – 22:00, Food Stands stay open until Midnight

It’s no surprise that Old Town Square is home to Prague’s largest and most picturesque Christmas Market, complete with a towering Christmas tree, nativity scene and concert stage, and numerous food and gift vendors. Even if you aren’t looking to do some holiday shopping, the square is a must-see for the views alone and is continuously ranked as one of the top Christmas Markets in the world.

Náměstí Míru (Peace Square)

Through December 24
10:00 – 19:00

This romantic, intimate market is perhaps the only location frequented more by locals than tourists. These vendors offer handmade goods like soaps and lotions, authentic wooden toys and woven scarves and gloves over touristy gimmicks. The square’s stunning view of the neo-Gothic Church of St. Ludmila adds to the fairytale atmosphere of Prague’s first open market of the season.

Náplavka Market

December 1, 8, 15, 22
8:00 – 14:00
Náplavka Rašínovo nábřeží, Prague 2

If you’re planning on cooking your way through the holidays, Náplavka is the place to go. Known for its locally grown fresh produce and Czech goods, the market supports small high-quality producers from the Czech Republic. You can’t beat the vegetables and spices available here – you can even find live carp for a traditional Czech Christmas.

Václavské náměstí (Wenceslas Square)

Through January 6
10:00 – 22:00, Food Stands stay open until Midnight

The biggest market besides Old Town Square, this is the best place to get your entire holiday shopping list checked off. You can hop from vendor to vendor and then shop in the countless big name shops and department stores along the square.

Pražský hrad (Prague Castle)

Through January 6
Mo-Fri 9:00 – 18:00, Sa-Su 9:00 – 19:00
náměstí U Svatého Jiří (St. George’s Basilica Square), Prague 1

One of Prague’s newest markets, the backdrop of St. Vitus Cathedral and the massive Prague castle complex makes this one of the most unique locations. It’s the perfect way to visit two must-see sites at once.

Náměstí Republiky (Republic Square)

Through December 30

For visitors looking to take a break from the craziness of Old Town without traveling too far off the path, this market is the place. A smaller, less crowded version of Old Town Square’s markets, Náměstí Republiky hosts the vendors in front of the impressive Municipal House and Palladium shopping center. This is one of the best markets for traditional Czech meats, such as blood sausages and barbecued pork.
