A magical location with a huge Christmas tree, manger and dozens of stalls where you can buy handmade Christmas gifts, such as jewellery, glassware and wooden toys. The Wenceslas Square Christmas market is another Christmas market in Prague that is a huge attraction for visitors with numerous stands with Christmas gifts and Czech delicacies.
