Praha→11 Things to do in Prague in Winter
1. ICE SKATING
Plenty of ice-rinks appear during winter months all around the city. Rent the skates on place and enjoy the atmosphere! We recommend the one on Ovocný trh in the Old Town or the ice-rink on the rooftop of Galerie Harfa.
2.The Prague Christmas Markets: Shopping, Sweets, and Music
The lovely smell of mulled wine, cinnamon and spices. Heat emanating from the grills where roasting chestnuts are crackling away. Thousands of glittering lights. Choirs at every street corner. You are definitely amidst a Prague Christmas market. And with a bit of luck, a few snowflakes drift down from overhead to complete this magical tableau of Advent time in an exceptional city where the Christmas period remains one of the best times of the year to plan your visit.

4. GO TO THE SAUNA
Saunas are quite popular in the Czech Republic, maybe under the influence of slavic brothers, so it should be easy to find one. The one we'll try today is Sauna Spot with the river view http://www.saunaspot.cz/
5. VISIT A MUSEUM
Except many buildings of National Museum such as its New Building or Czech Museum of Music (www.nm.cz/Visit-Us/), admirers of science might be interested also in visiting National Technical Museum (www.ntm.cz/en). Worth visiting is also a museum dedicated to famous czech Art Nouveau artist Alfons Mucha (www.mucha.cz)
6. GO TO THE RESTAURANT FOR A GOOD CZECH CUISINE
Czech traditional food is mostly really heavy, but visiting a restaurant which serves Czech food can be a perfect ending of a winter afternoon, especially if you spent the day sighseeing in the city.
If you prefer a bit lighter lunch, get inspired by locals and try one of brand new small bistros in the city. The food is always homemade, often vegetarian or vegan and the menu changes every day.
Together with exploring Letna Park try Bistro 8 http://www.bistro8.cz
Enjoy the best burgers in the city in Dish Burger Bistro http://www.dish.cz
In the heart of the Old Town (and across the street from VIOLET, KLARA and KAROLINA) is Bistro & Obchod No. 19 https://www.facebook.com/bistro19
8.ENJOY A CAFÉ
In past two years, Prague experienced a boom of new cafés finally comparable to those in London or Berlin. So except traditional ones such as Kavárna Slavie or Café Louvre, you can try Saturday brunch in Café Neustadt or a dessert in Cukrkávalimonáda close to Charles Bridge, enjoy an amazing coffee in EMA espresso bar or Café Lounge or escape from a touristic center and hang out with locals in wonderful Vinohrady district in Moment Café, Monolok or Bio Zahrada.
9. LISTEN TO A JAZZ CONCERT
10. MODERN ART EXHIBITION IN DOX
DOX centre for contemporary art, architecture and design is one of the most progressive artistic institutions in Czech Republic and always offers an interesting exhibition worth to see.
