One of the most pleasurable pursuits in Budapest is to wander around the Christmas fairs dotted around the city in the Advent season, as is sampling scrumptious food and buying small gifts for loved ones, obviously.

The Budapest Advent and Christmas Fair at Vörösmarty Square has been an unmissable winter event in the capital for decades. It is hard to say where the best place to start looking around is, so why not grab a mug of mulled wine to kick off the stroll? Once your hands are warmed through and your spirits high, there is no need to rush: take your time and check out the beautiful craft products. For years, the stalls have offered only artisan products carefully selected by a professional panel, so no matter what takes your fancy, you can be sure that the gift is a high-quality Hungarian artisan craft product. Open until 1st January 2019, the Fair also presents the best of Hungarian gastronomy; you can taste goulash, grilled sausages and blood pudding, delicious roasts and of course chimney cake for dessert. The Advent fair also offers concerts and family programmes, presentations of folk crafts and trades, and over the weekends you can learn about Hungarian folk traditions.
