To fill the big cities of the holiday mood, there are two things that are essential. The first is the mulled wine, and the second is the Christmas market. The latter not only in Budapest or Gyor can find it, but even in the neighboring countries metropolis. Vienna can be targeted or even Kassa, but we can have a good time in the Czech capital, Prague, as well.
In late November, Gyor again wrapped in Christmas lights. The leadership of the city has been great as usual and colourful schemes in store for the holiday. The light dresses decorated downtown, the pedestrian is filled with the mulled wine and roasted chestnuts delicious smell. On The Szechenyi Square , set up everyone’s Christmas tree and nativity scene the great delight of the children and even the reindeers turn up. At the opening, switching on the city's festive decorative lighting within limits.

The second largest city of Slovakia is Kassa (Kosice) from 5th of December until 23th permeates all the way to the anticipation of Christmas. The main street going through hot chocolate in your hand to be had in Christmas fairy tale. A great atmosphere with honey cakes and mulled wine also takes care of this city. The carved long street view of the main sights: the St. Elizabeth's Cathedral, the Urban Tower, or the National Theatre.

It cannot stay out of the line the famous Austrian fair, which is a traditional centre of none other than Vienna. The Austrian capital we almost can find a fair at every turn, but one by one they all have their own charm, which is most commonly lint on the subject. The streets emanates from the table with fruit, honey cakes and Christmas punch and roasted chestnuts scent of which, if we wanted to, we could not resist. If we are in Austria, we also can check the Schönbrunn castle, which is also can find a Christmas vendor.
Geographically is a bit farer can find Prague (Praha), like other countries where the Christmas markets have a tradition. The Czech capital is worth a visit between December 1 and January 1, because then nine o'clock in the morning until eight at night markets can experience fever. The old town square named - Staromestská námestie - Christmas tree set up in the Czech Republic and curiosities attract tourists.
In the weeks before Christmas, Advent,the most cities are beautifully decorated in Europe. This is true for Krakow and for the Polish Tatra’s capital Zakopanere, too!

Last but not least walk through the market and select between the local handicrafts, leather goods and woodcarvings are worked out nicely! One of the curiosities of the fair is the inhabitants of the home-made cheese, after tasting from which you can buy.
