Five Reasons to visit Prague during the Winter Season

Prague Sightseeing Winter Tours 150x150 - Five Reasons to visit Prague during the Winter SeasonPrague is becoming one of the best spots in Europe for off season winter travelers. When it comes to winter fun in this small and wonderful country, it isn’t just about visiting Prague, you can ski and snowboard the beautiful Czech mountains in the ski resorts of Spindleruv Mlyn, Lipno, Plesivec, Klinovec, Pec pod Snezkou and many more. Take a day trip to our many skii resorts  or stay in Prague and take a nice private Winter tour of Prague. Here are 5 great reasons why you should visit Prague for your Winter holiday.

1: Best reason is hotels are  cheaper

The best thing about it is that its off season and hotels and private tours are  cheaper. Its easier to find the hotel or airbnb during off season in Prague except during the holidays of course.

2: The streets are empty and you can move around better

You can really walk the streets and absorb the feeling without bumping into thousands of people lost finding their way around. You don’t have to stand in long lines to get entry into a shop, into the theater or exhibition and getting seated in a restaurant is much easier.

3: The weather is the best during Fall and Winter

Prague is hot during the summer months. Most of the trams do not have air conditioning and buildings were designed in the old days when we didn’t need air conditioning.  Walking on the hot cobblestones in the hot sun can be grueling, so why not go skiing in the mountains of Czechia instead or take private winter walking tour.

4: Christmas and New Years Holidays in Prague are Amazing

Prague is the city of spires and during Christmas and New Years Prague really shines! “Literally” with beautiful lights and sounds, Christmas markets on every corner. Everyone is enjoying the season with hot wine and chestnuts. The Old Town Square and Prague Castle are breathtaking during Christmas and New Years celebration. Prague lights up with fireworks during New Years Eve celebration with parties everywhere. Prague is the place to be during Christmas.

Prague is the most unique city in Europe with its incredible mix of architecture not to mention the miraculous Charles Bridge and Prague Castle. In Winter Prague transforms into a wonderland of activities and sights with lots of things to do and see.
