But since this time I ended up in Prague just before Christmas I was looking forward to visiting its holidays market. I could picture myself slowly wandering around stalls selling Christmas goodies, listening to Christmas carolls, drinking mulled wine. Sadly the reality was a little bit different… Every Christmas market I’ve visited was full of Asian or Russian tourists. Most of the stalls were selling souvenirs made in China, only very few had typical Czech products (such as krteks mascots or gingerbread hearts). The food was overpriced and the Christmas spirit was just not there! Too bad, I was really hoping these markets could have gotten me in a jolly Christmas mood. So after all I spent very little time there and well, headed back to Zizkov to hang out there. At least there I could see the real Prague.
