During winter there are several possibilities to spend your time in the capital of the Czech Republic. One of the most popular event in the city during the winter period is the Christmas market and the other outdoor activity ice skating.
In Prague there are several ice rinks all around the city when the weather gets chilly and we will write about the most visited and biggest ice rink in Prague. This ice rink in the city takes place at Ovocny trh which is a square located just right at Estates Theatre in the Old Town. It is one of the best programs for everyone from tourists to locals as well. The annual ice rink and the Christmas market together attract every year more and more people to the city.
If your are tired of sightseeing and you want to do some fun and you love speed, ice and skating then this is the perfect activity for you. The ice rink opens its gates this year from 6th December until 31st January next year. The ice rink is free for everyone during the whole time and you can also hire skates for 50 CZK. Every day the ice rink is open from 10 in the morning until 9.30 in the evening. The ice rink in Prague is held at Ovocny trh just behind the Estates Theatre, Old Town, Prague 1.
[stbpro id=”warning” caption=”This information is not correct!!!”]Unfortunately this ice rink does not exist after all. The local government decide not to open the ice rink after all in 2014/2015, so if you visit this area in the described period you will find nothing here at all. If you really want to go ice skating you can do so at for example Veřejné hřiště Na Františku, Kozí, 110 00 Praha 1.[/stbpro]

I looked for it today (17/12/2014) and was told that the new government can’t afford it, so it’s not there!
Hey there Eric, thanks for writing! I am not sure what has happened, but if that is what they told you, I guess you are correct. Will still look into it to see if I can find out some more on this topic!
Just updated the article now, because it is really true that there is not ice rink there this year because the local government for some reason decided to cancel this arrangement. Thanks a lot for writing Eric, and sorry about the wrong information that was here on this page!
