News & Such

Dec 2019

The Christmas season is here in full swing.  All of the Prague Christmas Markets are open.  The main ones are on Old Town Square and Wenceslas Square but there are many smaller Christmas Markets everywhere.  Basically, if there is open space anywhere in Prague, they set up a Christmas Market.  Probably the most representative "item" from the Czech Republic are the Christmas ornaments.  We make the prettiest!  Glass is a major industry here, as you surely know. 

Another major industry are the Bohemiam glass beads.  Perfect for the Christmas season, we offer glass angel necklaces not only for Christmas in Christmas colors but also the Chakra Prague Angels in the colors of the chakras.  Come and get yours at the Farmers Market at Kulatak.  Look for the stand "Prague Angels" or visit his website "www.Prague-Angel.com"

Farmers Market at Kulatak is open every Saturday from 8:00 am to 2:00 pm.  A Christmas theme is assured.  Local farmers bring their vegetables, flowers, honey, baked goods, homemade pasta and so much more, it is a culinary delight.  Lots of stalls offering street food as well, along with our wonderful beer.  Spiced wine - svarak, is a favorite "warm me up" staple here as well.  Just take the green metro line A to Dejvicka and once you get off, you can't miss it.  A large sign says "Farmarske Trhy" , farmers market.  We look forward to seeing you there!

For details, go to www.farmarske-trhy.cz

While you are there, taste the incredible delicious Christmas cookies grandmas used to make!  A real treat!

When you have experienced the Prague Christmas Markets, take a tour to Dresden, a city north of Prague in Germany.  Their Christmas Market is one of the prettiest in Europe.

InfoTweet of the week

Some of our clients take European boat cruises.  Although Prague is on a river, the Vltava, this river is not navigable for most ships.  Visitors to Prague are often cruising on the Danube, Main or Rhein Rivers , coming to Prague before or after their cruise.  Then they need a transfer to or from city, where their ship comes in or leaves from.  They often do not want to take advantage of the bus transfers offered by the cruise line but prefer a personal approach. 

We are happy to take you to your ship or pick you up there.  Please see the distances below as well as further details and prices

Also, should you want to visit another city in Europe from Prague, this is a helpful guide, letting you know how far the closest major European cities are from Prague.
