Every year millions of tourists go to Budapest during the winter festivals. This is why the city is a bit crowded and it can be quite hard for you to find a proper place to stay. Let me tell you my story…I decided that I want to visit this amazing city 3 years ago during Christmas and this is why I started to plan everything sooner. To tell you the truth, I took the right decision because as I mentioned above it was kind of hard to find decent Budapest apartment, plus the prices were constantly going up…if you make a research you will see that because of the amazing Christmas market there you will be able to find Wroclaw accommodation and Poznan apartments for less money. But anyway, my personal opinion is that it’s definitely worth to spend a little bit more money and accommodate in Budapest because the Christmas market is a must see.
As far as I remember it opens on 18th of November and closes on 30th of December. You should definitely go there because you will surprise both yourself and your loved ones. The place is truly amazing. This market takes place on the Vorosmarty Squre and it will be really easy to be found because after all…it is in the heart of Budapest. The opening hours are from 10 to 20 and it works every day without a stop. This is why you will be able to visit it whenever you want and as many times as you want. Plus there are many hotels which were situated nearby but my personal recommendation is to take a Budapest apartment.
Definitely the things you are going to find there can’t be found anywhere else in the world. You will have the chance to buy different goods that will make a good memory and every time you look at them you will remember about the special time you had in Budapest. Just one last advice – pay attention to opening and closing hour because I made a few times the mistake to go there earlier and since the weather was quite cold it wasn’t much of a pleasant experience to stay there and wait. Plus pay attention to all of the shops because sometimes there are similar goods at different prices…and make sure that you choose the best one.
Anyway, Budapest id definitely a great place to spend your winter vacation. It is really cool and the market is stunning. You will definitely have a good time. Not only that you will experience the amazing atmosphere of Budapest during winter but also have the chance to buy presents for your loved ones. And believe me, the diversity of Christmas presents is so big there that it may take you a whole day to choose something. I also forgot to mention that if you are not alone you’d better stick together since the place can be really crowded and people get lost really easily.
