Budapest Christmas Fair, Budapest, Hungary
Every holiday season, Budapest's Vorosmarty Square transforms into Hungary's largest Christmas market, draped with twinkling lights and filled with vendors selling traditional Hungarian Christmas decorations and crafts.
In addition to shopping at more than 120 stalls, visitors enjoy jazz and world music concerts, dance performances, and puppet shows for children.
Warm your spirits and belly with traditional Hungarian treats, including Kurtoskalacs, or Chimney Cakes, stuffed cabbage, roasted goose thigh and pork knuckle. Grab a mug of hot, mulled wine, and watch the "light painting" on the square's historic buildings, an event held each evening of the fair.
