The Advent market on Old Town Square stands as an iconic symbol of the Christmas season, marked by the ceremonial lighting of the Christmas tree.

This tradition, central to the holiday spirit, continues this year with the winning tree selected from the Tree Search competition.

Experts will fell the tree for the Old Town Square market on Nov. 25 before transporting it overnight to Prague on November 27-28.

The eagerly anticipated lighting ceremony at Old Town Square is scheduled for Saturday, December 2, at 4 pm.

Attendees can expect the enchanting display of around forty angels, accompanied by four and a half kilometers of LED light chains.

Post the initial lighting, the tree will be lit regularly at 4:30 pm, 5:30 pm, 6:30 pm, 7:30 pm, 8:30 pm, and 9:30 pm, continuing to grace the square until January 6, 2024.

In 2022, the Old Town Market was named by CNN among the best to visit during that winter holiday season.

Yet, the spotlight won’t be reserved for a singular tree. Karlínské náměstí will illuminate its tree on November 27, followed by Petrské náměstí on December 3 from 5 pm.

St. Nicholas will make a grand entrance on December 5, ushering in a lighting ceremony on Kampa at 17:00 and on Malostranské náměstí at 18:15.
