3) Enjoy a Theatre Performance

Blacklight theatre, and telling stories through visuals and body language, has become a staple in Prague’s theatre community.

These performances are great for audiences of all ages and nationalities, as they are nonverbal and therefore without a language barrier.

There will be multiple performances throughout the month of November.

You can purchase tickets online or at the box office daily. Prices are 580 CZK for adults, 400 CZK for children, and a 2 adult + 2 child ticket is 1740 CZK.

() Warm Up with Traditional Czech Food

November means colder weather, more layers, and searching out some warm comfort food. Czech cuisine can definitely deliver on that last point.

Find a  local pub for some delicious roasted pork, locally known as vepro knedlo zelo, or cesnecka – garlic soup topped with a raw egg.

 

 

If you’re in Prague at the end of November, be sure to check out the warm, sweet treats on sale at the Christmas markets.


5) Go Sightseeing

One of the easiest ways of learning all about the city and its history is by taking a sightseeing tour. That is why the hop-on-hop-off bus tours of Prague are such a popular option. 

 

 

Other interesting ways of seeing Prague are to take a cruise down the Vltava River or a pay-what-you-like walking tour.

While it does get chilly at night, the wintry atmosphere of November makes this Ghost and Legends tour of Old Town perfectly spooky!


6) Go to a Christmas Market

It isn’t quite Christmastime, but the Christmas Market at Prague Castle opens on November 23, 2019, and runs through the first week of January 2020.

And if you’re in town the last weekend of the month, the rest of the city’s Christmas Markets will open for business then, too. 

 

 

You’ll be able to find the two main spaces in the Castle market.

One holds the food and beverage vendors – we recommend trying the warm mead or hot chocolate to keep fend off the cold temperatures as you browse the other stalls of handmade souvenirs and festive decorations.
