Thousands of people wanted to see the Christmas tree

The Lord Mayer of Prague, Pavel Bem, lit up the Christmas tree in the middle of Old Town Square on Saturday and officially started the Christmas markets on this well-known square.

The play of lights took two minutes before the Christmas tree was lit completely. However, the Christmas atmosphere was spoiled a bit when thousands of people in Old Town Square were stacked with crowds of people in side streets who still wanted to see the Christmas tree. It took several minutes before the people could move from their places.

Another Christmas tree was also lit in Prague Castle by Livia Klausova, the wife of the President of the Czech Republic. She also started the charity collection for children in children’s houses. Today at 17:00 a Christmas tree will be lit in Kampa near the Charles Bridge.
