Come to Pilsen to Enjoy Christmas Atmosphere
Some of the days which are very lively in the historical centre of Pilsen are undoubtedly the days of the Advent period. The streets glow with Christmas decoration. The Republic Square is dominated by a giant Christmas tree around which the Christmas market takes place. Carols are played in the market to create the festive atmosphere. Every day you will meet a man on the night patrol who, according to an old Czech custom, blows on the horn and reports what the time is.
The Christmas market on the Republic Square is open every day from November 24th until December 23rd. From a varied range of handcrafted products, you will choose the right gift for your loved ones. Here you can also buy Christmas decorations. Moreover, traditional Czech Christmas sweets are served which create typical smell of every Czech home during the Christmas period. If you feel cold during your pre-Christmas Pilsen walk, surely the market is a great place to get warm again with a cup of hot wine or hot punch.
Events in St Bartholomew Cathedral
Every Sunday in the morning, you can go to the St. Bartholomew’s Cathedral to enjoy one of the Advent concerts or to watch the pre-Christmas atmosphere in the city of Pilsen from the top of the Pilsen tower.
