There is always something happening at Namesti Svobody in Brno.
Even in the cold weather of December, the center of Brno is still entertaining its citizens and visitors.
Brno Christmas Markets
Every year around the holidays opens the Brno Christmas Markets.
This is a great place to buy your friends and family some Christmas gifts from Brno.
At the markets you can find decorations, gifts, trinkets, souvenirs, all natural cosmetics, traditional handcrafted products, and more.
Of course the Christmas Markets are not just about shopping.
You can also see a large nativity scenes, drink wine, and eat some delicious Czech cuisine – all while you listen to Christmas carolers, and watch performances put on by muscians, dancers, and more.
The Christmas Markets open on November 30th and close at the end of the day on Christmas Eve.
