Budapest is offering two special programs. If you look at these, you are guaranteed to feel the Christmas spirit. Check out the magical light painting at Vörösmarty Square or discover the Christmas Street of Hungarian Flavours at Millenáris.
The street of Hungarian Flavours is preparing a real speciality for the week before Christmas. At the Millenáris event, gastronomy fairs and family programs await those interested. You can taste special stuffed cabbages, such as a 17th-century recipe, or even a Transylvanian version.
Hungary’s winner bejglis of 2021 will also be available at the fair.
So, you can also taste the bejgli made by Trattoria di Sophia, the winner in the walnut category, or the poppy seed winner presented by Szurgent Craft Ice Cream and Confectionery. The organisers are preparing with not only gastronomic but also family programs. A nativity scene, giant puppets, musicians, and a dance house will also entertain the audience, writes turizmus.com. On the 19th of December, you can watch a family traffic safety program. The event is free, but you need to register.
You can also find a special program at the Vörösmarty Square Christmas Fair where
visitors can admire a light painting.
The special light painting will be projected onto the wall of the Gerbeaud House until 26 December. After dark, a light painting will await you every day at the Christmas market on Vörösmarty Square. It is one of the popular attractions of Christmas fairs and was started this year, writes enbudapestem. In previous years, the Gerbeaud House building had a giant Advent calendar and was accompanied by music. This festive mood will return again this year. Winter scenes and urban moments will alternate on the wall.
The highlight of the light painting are the caleidoscope-like Christmas motifs.
You can see the light painting every half hour from 5 p.m. Between two displays, Christmas-style patterns will be alternating on the building. In addition, a counter will let you know when the next screening will begin. You can visit the fair with a vaccination card, but you can also see the light painting outside the fair.
