What Christmas Markets to visit in Poland this Holiday season? Posted by on Nov 30, 2021 in Holidays, Places to visit, Traditions

One of the best things I remember about Christmas when I lived in Poland was visiting Christmas Markets! So many big cities and small towns have their markets during Holiday season. While some of the markets are perhaps more attractive than others, each of them is unique and worth visiting.

Wrocław Christmas Market is definitely worth visiting, especially if you are a fan of Fairy Tale! This theme shows signs in many decorations and activities at the market. There is a  fairy tale forest, gnomes, and much more. Additionally, there are tons of activities and events to choose from, such as Christmas-themed rides and parades. The picture above is shoving a small street, but the Market is actually huge and mostly located in the main Market Square.

This year’s dates are November 19th, 2021 – December 31, 2021! Enjoy!

Another market I would recommend would be definitely Kraków! Such a popular tourist destination and it looks absolutely amazing and magical during Christmas! Although I have to admit, Kraków Market Square (Rynek Główny) looks like a Holiday Market pretty much year around! You will be able to do some Christmas shopping, try delicious food, listen to the music and of course checkout Christmas Cribs, the most refined forms, the most opulent and beautiful ornamentation – these are the distinctive features of Szopki Krakowskie. They have been made by Cracow masters of carpentry and stone – masonry since the mid 19th century.
