Nothing says European Christmas like a festive market, and each December seasons greetings are everywhere to be seen in České Budějovice — but nowhere more so than in the main square. Here, rows and rows of wooden stalls are set up for the annual Christmas markets with plenty of traditional merchants selling their wares. Browse wooden toys, ceramics, wreaths, candles, and plenty of handcrafted Christmas decorations. You’ll be serenaded by carolers and able to watch dance and theatre performances. A small ice rink is set up for skaters, and there’s a ritual lighting of the tree ceremony. Of course, there’s also mulled wine to keep you warm, and plenty of delicious festive food on offer too. České Budějovice’s Christmas markets run through December, ending on Christmas Eve.
