Enjoy Romanian Christmas!
Bucharest started to become more and more famous for its Christmas Markets. The tour will take you to visit three markets, one indoor and two outdoors, that include traditional gifts, homemade food and of course traditional drinks.
From our meeting point, we will take a nice walk on the boulevard to admire the wonderful decorations, and trust us that regarding the opulence of the decoration, Bucharest is one of the top cities in Europe. The first visited market will be indoors, a place where you can find Romanian handmade gifts and not only, also sweets, jewelry and other objects that are normally given as gifts on Christmas night.
From there on, we will continue to the second market, this time outdoors where, if you are bold enough, you will receive a traditional mulled wine or tea (your choice, but our treat). You can admire decorations and handmade gifts made by Romanian artisans.
What tour is it without the magnificent Old Town?
Strolling through its narrow streets, the guide will tell you the story of Christmas celebration in past times, from medieval age to communism and explain how our traditions changed. You will be surprised on how interesting and sometimes weird our Christmas traditions are.
Exiting the Old Town, we will go to our third and biggest market, found exactly in front of our biggest building: the Palace of Parliament. Here you will receive as a compliment from us a traditional food sampling and another mulled wine of course, while the guide will explain you about what is normally included in our Christmas menu (be prepared to be amazed by the number of traditional dishes that we cook especially for this celebration). In most evenings, this markets also hosts concerts, so prepare for an interesting evening.
