Afterwards, get your first taste of Polish old-world charm with a walk around the magnificent Cloth Hall in the Market Square. Wrapped in romantic gabled townhouses and Gothic spires, the festive Christmas Market stalls are a Disneyesque dream, offering all sorts of delicacies and delights – from Highland woollen slippers to amber jewellery from the Baltic.

Then cross the former Jewish Quarter of Kazimierz to Old Podgórze, the Old Town, to see Ghetto Square and remains of the Ghetto Wall. The rest of the day is at leisure and allows you to explore the traditional Christmas Market located in the Old Town’s historic district.

Rated as one of the finest in Europe, Wrocław’s Christmas Market offers a delightful, fairy-tale charm.

Cross the Czech border and head for Kutná Hora, a town that flourished during the Middle Ages thanks to vast deposits of silver.

Then, down at the Old Town Square, Prague’s colourful Christmas Market contrasts with the Gothic skyline.
