Feasting in a Prague Christmas Market
Day or night, it’s easy to get sucked into the Christmas Market in Old Town Square, Staroměstské Naměsti, in Prague. So grab a cup of hot honey wine and stroll through the lively festivities including angelic children’s choir groups and folk dancing troupes; metal-workers showing off their skills making hand-made door bells; and stall after stall of regional street food favorites like Trdelnik, the cuff-shaped fried dough covered in cinnamon sugar; homemade spiral potato chips; and Halušky, the mouth-watering mixture of miniature potato dumplings, cheese, cabbage, and bacon. Keep your eyes peeled and you might just happen upon the jolliest of pork slicers sharing the roast of the day. Pork is definitely the meat of choice and pride here in Prague, so go ahead and indulge.
