Christmas Markets in the Olomouc Region

The widest range of sortiment and the richest cultural programme of Christmas markets can be traditionally found in Olomouc. At the interconnected Upper and Lower Square there are more than a hundred of stalls offering products connected with Christmas and winter, refreshments, and the renowned punch. The visitors can also enjoy varied programme filled with popular music perfomers of all genres, theater for kids and adults, advent customs, period attractions, carved nativity scene, and Christmas carols singing. On the Lower Square, an ice-rink is open every day until the end of the year. The markets commenced on 23th November with the festive lighting of the Christmas tree, and will last until the Christmas Eve. The advent markets in Olomouc have become a staple of the winter season, and thanks to their incredible and magical atmosphere, attract visitors both domestic and foreign.

From the 30th November on, people visiting Central Moravia can also head to Přerov for the town's Christmas Market. It offers concerts, theater, live nativity scenes, and regular screenings of movies and fairytales on a large screen.

For ice-skating fans, another ice-rink is prepared in the centre of Prostějov, together with an advent programme for both children and adults. The advent programme in Prostějov starts on December 3rd.

The main square in Šternberk then comes alive with a rich programme for the whole family every advent Sunday. This year's novelty will be a show with Austrian devils. The town also organizes special tours of Šternberk Castle, Christmas exhibitions at Expozice času (Time Exhibition) and at the Information Center, as well as concerts in the Cultural House and local church.
