Do you like the smell of mulled wine and baked goodies at pre-Christmas markets, the sights of traditional nativity scenes and the soothing sounds of Christmas carols? Or do you prefer a relaxing stroll through ancient Prague on a quiet, snowy night? Planning a romantic getaway for Valentine's Day? Prague offers all this in winter.
A little snow is all it takes to turn the historic heart of Prague into a place straight out of a romantic fairy tale. It will enchant its visitors with the charm of buildings with red roofs covered in shimmering white paint and, thanks to fewer tourists, it will provide a great opportunity to discover the charming cobbled streets almost on your own.
A stay at the Old Royal Post, our luxurious hotel in the centre of Prague, turns into a truly unique experience during the last season of the year. The pre-Christmas atmosphere begins with the annual tree lighting ceremony in Old Town Square and offers visitors the chance to attend Christmas concerts, exhibitions, Advent craft market workshops and the opportunity to sing carols in the open air.
But winter doesn't end at the end of the year. Go to Prague in February, for example, Valentine's Day invites you to spend a romantic stay in our hotel Old Royal Post. Just a few days later, the centre of Prague comes alive with carnival revelry, complete with the traditional parade of masks and celebrations of winter slowly coming to an end.
