The Christmas markets on the Old Town Square and Wenceslas Square are already known to everyone, with huge crowds of people every night. However, entrepreneurial young people have set up some alternatives, and so the city can offer residents and tourists a more modern Christmas market experience than those traditional markets that we already know about in the city centre.
The highly anticipated Manifesto Winter Market was opened on Thursday near Florenc. Manifesto celebrated great success in the summer months, selling delicious food from all over the world. This winter season, you can find twenty different food stalls here, and you can also buy gifts from dozens of local designers. You can enjoy your delicious food and drinks in heated igloos or beside special fireplaces, so you shouldn’t be put off by the cold weather. Entry to the Manifesto Market is free of charge.
Modern Christmas markets in non-traditional places are becoming more and more popular in the city. The next one will open on December 15th at DUP39. Here you can also buy special gifts from local designers. The DUP39 space is located behind the Quadrio department store.
Among the less traditional Christmas markets is the Dyzajn Market Winter, which will again take place on Václav Havel Square. It will be open from the 8th to the 9th of December, and then again from the 15th to the 16th of December. This is a selective sales exhibition of creative work. A total of 180 designers will showcase their goods, alongside bands, DJs, theatre performances, workshops, and of course, great food and drink.
