Old Town. What city do you think has the best Christmas atmosphere?
in all fairness all cities! Christmas time is great pretty much everywhere in Europe since most european countries really go "all-out" when it comes to the holidays. I'd say, though, Germany is the best spot to enjoy xmas because of the xmas markets and beautiful displays of nativity scenes that are sometimes with life-sized figures
I had never visited Prague but I want to celebrate 2012 Christmas in Prague. I hope I will arrange all the stuff regarding my plan.
Christmas markets in Prague
travel between December 1 and December 23 if you want to experience Prague Christmas markets. Even it's Xmas, sightseeing tours and tourist attractions operate as normal and so the bars, restaurants and shops are open. However, on December 24 (Christmas Eve) you may find many tourist attractions close, but as the city itself is the main attraction, the streets and squares are great to explore on foot.
It's difficult to choose just one city. I'd like to visit Prague during the holidays and also Tokyo with all the festive lights and Christmas trees. I'd also like to visit Germany for the holidays and during Oktoberfest.
A friend of mine says that Prague is worth to visit. Can you recommend me some places to visit?
The first fours things that come to mind are: Prague Castle, Old Town (Stare Mesto), St. Vitus Cathedral, and Hemingway Bar. What do you like to do?
