Prague in winter - mist and snowflakes over the Vltava river

When winter is over the historic city and the first snowflakes fall, it becomes quiet in Prague. Where else the babble of tourists' voices resounds, the steps on the cobblestones now echo. The wintery Prague has its special attractions and can be explored in peace, especially in the cold months.

Enchanting angles
When strolling through the old town of Prague, the houses and churches and the 30 statues on the Charles Bridge are powdered white, you feel in the midst of the medieval backdrop as in the past set back. The view from the bridge over the Vltava River to the magnificent Prague Castle is an enchanting photo opportunity in winter. If you want to change the perspective, then a small descent into the Prague "underworld" is worthwhile. Approximately in the middle of the Charles Bridge, a few steps lead down and you enter the narrowest street in the world. A traffic light regulates the passage, because it is so narrow that only one person ever passes. At the other end, the listed Certovka restaurant awaits you on the banks of the Vltava River, with views up to Charles Bridge. A hidden, unknown corner of the city is the Nový Svet quarter behind the castle with its small streets and cozy cafés where you can warm up wonderfully.

Prague winter fairytale
It is not just the charming Christmas markets on the pretty Old Town Square with its traditional craft products, mulled wine and delicious Christmas cookies that immerse Prague in a magnificent winter setting. Even after the holidays, the colorful fruit market transforms the city into a winter wonderland. Nearby, at the Estates Theater, skating in the winter until late in the evening. In addition to culinary delights, you can also enjoy cultural events, such as atmospheric live concerts. Winter peace and tranquility can be found in Letná Park east of the castle.
