Christmas Market in your city

Christmas time is coming and due to these significant holidays many European cities organize Christmas markets as an inviting attraction for inhabitants of city and for tourists, which can enjoy christmas atmosphere and relish the traditional delicacies or just buy some handmade souvenir. So let's show us how your city is expecting Christmas on its squares

Bratislava Christmas Markets ( Vianočné trhy) aren't big and ostentatious, but precendency is homy and affable atmosphere. History of Bratislava Christmas Market is not so long, they are organized every winter since 90's, but during this time they get big popularity. Offer of market is relatively simple but adequate, mostly of offered foods are from grill like sausages, various meat and then also traditional lokše ( simply dough with lard and many other various fillings), bread with goose fat and onion and of course traditional decorated gingerbreads. Unfortunately, there is no big choice of homey pastries and candies unlike in Vienna, most of offered food are greasy flesh. Mulled wine or punch are inherent part of the markets, but they are served in plastic cup and quality is sometimes disputable.
Drawback of Bratislava Christmas markets is little space and a big crowd, which sometimes may be inconvenient, but on the other hand, big advantage are low and reasonable prices.

Toronto holds a Christmas Market in the Distillery District, the largest preserved collection of Victorian buildings in North America.
