Prague Christmas market opens Saturday on Old Town Square
With the holiday season just around the corner, the traditional Prague Christmas market is due to open on Saturday in the historic centre of the Czech capital. Both visitors to Prague and locals can come to see what’s in store this year in Old Town Square and Wenceslas Square and sample some traditional Czech Christmas delicacies.
“The Christmas market will be almost the same as last year. We just added some new food stands with traditional Czech food since in previous years, visitors to the market recommended that we bring more Czech specialities like ‘staroceske trdlo’ and ‘babiccina placka’, and so on. So we brought more food of this kind. We also re-organized some of the stalls so that Old Town Square is more spacious for people to move around and feel more comfortable.”
“Because we are a company that is responsible for the collection and ecological recycling of lamps. We feel that the lighting of the Christmas tree is a good opportunity to spread our message to the Czech people. They should know that lamps and luminaires can be recycled ecologically, and we want to encourage people to put them into bins for recycling. ”
“I could guarantee that for the last three years since we started organizing the Christmas market. We measure the tree, and conduct the respective tests with it. We put weights on the sides of the tree, and below, there is a 21-ton weight holding it.”
