The famous Christmas market of Budapest on Vörösmarty Square opened last Friday and already welcomed hundreds of visitors.
We wrote earlier that there was a significant price rise compared to last year. However, Budapest’s most illustrious Christmas fair is still very popular among mostly foreign visitors and tourists.
Bigseventravel.com selected the Vörösmarty Square Christmas market as the 21st best in the world. The market precedes several Austrian, Canadian, American and Swiss fairs but even the Christmas markets in Tokyo and Amsterdam as well as the Winter Wonderland in London.
The website writes that more than 800,000 people attended the fair and it had 747,200 TikTok views.
About the market they wrote the following:
“Vörösmarty Square is at its most enchanting at Christmas when it comes alive with twinkling lights and tinkling market stalls. Over 100 traders set up in the square for more than a month, selling local trinkets, delicious sausages, stews and funnel cakes. There’s always a dizzying calendar of events to enjoy too, from craft workshops to children’s puppet shows.”
