Prague Mayor lighting up the Christmas tree

About fifteen thousand people came this Saturday evening to see the ‘tree lighting ceremony’ on the Old Town Square. The pine tree wasn’t switched on all at once, Prague mayor Pavel Bem, with assistance of children, lighted it up slowly, step by step. Small red light bulbs at the bottom of the tree were the first, followed by golden ones. Larger silver lights were the last.

After the light performance the Old Town square vibrated with noels. The next day in the morning, festival markets opened.

The markets are traditionally at Wenceslas square and Old Town square until the 1st January.
