Christmas is coming sooner and sooner every year, at least in the decoration, the Christmas sale and the Christmas markets. The biggest fair of Budapest is now open – sooner than ever before: the Christmas tree is set, the booths are ready, and the fair opened at Vörösmarty square.

The market has the same things to do and eat as in the previous years: the well-known gastronomic offer of mulled wine, sausage and gingerbread, concerts, folk crafts and many other things to buy. And as usual, Joulupukki, the real Santa Claus, will also be visiting the event on December 6.
