Christmas markets in Czechia

For many Czechs, Christmas markets (“vánoční trhy” in Czech) are the best thing about winter. The markets are a popular place to visit with family or friends for a chat over a cup of hot mulled wine or a snack. As a rule there is an accompanying programme of entertainment in which Czech Christmas carols always play a big part.
