Advent fair at the Basilica among top 20 Christmas markets in Europe
Posted by Mia Balogh · Dec 11, 2018

The beautiful Christmas fair at the Basilica still has the chance to become the best Christmas market in Europe.

“Festive lights, ice skating and cultural programs” – one of the most beautiful Christmas markets of Budapest, located at St. Stephen’s Basilica is characterized like this in a contest by the website European Best Destinations.

By clicking to this webpage, we all can vote for our favourite Christmas market in Europe (one vote per one IP address is accepted) but yes, we know that it’s not easy to choose because there are 20 fantastic European cities in the competition with amazing Advent fairs…

Well, for us it’s not even a question that the one at the Basilica is the most beautiful one, and the folks of the internet seems to agree with us: last year, in the same competition, this Christmas market was chosen 4th best in Europe.

In the last three years, it was always Zagreb’s Christmas fair that managed to triumph – this year, they are not among the top 20 but the organizers promise that the Croatian capital will return to the contest very soon.

Like and share our article, if you think that the Advent fair at the Basilica deserves to be among the best ones this year, as well. ;)
