Let Budapest Christmas Feast be Europe’s best!
The Christmas Feast at the Basilica has a great chance this year to be Europe’s best Cristmas market. Last year it won the classy 4th place, and from now on for ten days you can vote for it as the only Hungarian venue amongst the nominees.
The Advent Basilica opened its gates at the last weekend of November for the 8th time but this year as the 4th best Chirstmas market of Europe. It is also remarkable that by the public voting of European Best Destination the Feast climbed from the 9th to the 4th place just missing the stage only by 200 votes behind Wien last year.
So in the long run the organisers are proud to be among the TOP 5 Christmas Markets of Europe and this year they are waiting with an exrtremely warm and gently treat for people coming here to keep the cosy athmosphere of this magical community space.
Lightened up with three-mile long warm white light you can find fairy tale-houses on the square and along the streets offering unique contemporary crafts and of course you can warm up your heart with special hot Christmas drinks at every corner or have a bite of delicious meals no matter you are vegan or eat without gluten. Getting deep into this amazing hive you find adults enjoying smells and flavours and children skating on the free community icerink all amased by the 3D lightpainting on the Basilika which is truely unique in Europe.
Amongst the visuals and the atmosphere interesting kids programs, workshops, flashmobs and other surprises boost your experience. Not only gastro and craftshops entertain you but also local theater and dance groups.
So the time has come to attract attention for the Hungarian Capital in this touristical peak season using the chance the public voting of European Best Destination travel portal gave us. Last year more than 300 thousand visitors traveled to Budapest from abroad and most of them from Europe. This year we would like to host even more.
Everyone can participate to get the Advent Feast at the Basilica a nice place at the 2018. competition. You can vote 10 days from 30th November on www.europeanbestdestinations.com/christmas-markets
