Budapest Christmas 2007

By: www.budapestinfo.hu

Budapest Christmas has just begun on Vorosmarty square for the 9th time!

The main attraction will be the traditional Christmas Market on Vorosmarty Square in the heart of Pest. This well established event - one of the largest of its type in Europe - has become an indispensable part of the build-up to the festive season. It is the capital's largest public event outside the main tourist season, and is enduringly popular with locals and visitors alike. Indeed, many visitors make the trip to Budapest specifically to come to the Market.

Budapest Christmas 29th November to 24th december, 2007 Vorosmarty square

The Market is located in one of Budapest's most beautiful squares, and each year its organizers aim to stage a high quality event that is also a fitting way to prepare for Christmas. Thus the goods on sale include tasteful hand-made gifts and folk-inspired traditional arts and crafts: here there is no room for the garish or the mass-produced. It is thanks to this careful attention to the quality of the wares, along with the broadening over the years of the scope of the other attractions and entertainment on offer, that has ensured the event has gained the outstanding international reputation it has.

There will be 150 great stage shows , including puppet theatre, folk music and folk dancing. Visitors of all ages will be given a free hand in the heated marquee to make their own seasonal decorations. During the time the fair lasts, a Nativity scene made by the folk wood carver will be observable, inside it the statues showing the Sacred Family, and at the same time, for this year we also plan the exhibition of Betlehem cribs ade by students of primary school of arts.
