Christmas tree for Prague’s Old Town Square felled

The Christmas tree that will adorn Prague’s Old Town Square during the festive season, was felled by national champion lumberjack Jiří Vorlíček in the north Bohemian village of Pertoltice pod Ralskem on Saturday.

The 22-metre spruce, which is around 50 years old, will be lit on Saturday, December 2, marking the launch of the city’s Christmas markets, and remain in place until January 6.
