Christmas tree goes up at Old Town Square

A 22-metre tall spruce felled near Křivoklat, South Bohemia, has gone up on Prague’s Old Town Square for Christmas. This year’s Christmas tree on the square grew for 66 years.

It will be decorated and illuminated for the first time on Saturday, December 2, to mark the opening of the Christmas market. Last year, the ceremony was seen by 12,000 people.
