We can admire the new face of Budapest at night as the city also dresses up in Christmas lights by the lighting of the candle.
As visitors may have already got used to it, only quality domestic products are available at the stands of Vörösmarty Square.
It is with the experience of long decades and from the most exquisite materials that Hungarian artisans create those special objects that may become the ornaments of our homes or that may make our loved ones happy when presented as real unique souvenirs.
In addition to traditional festive foods and drinks, the stands of our flavour artisans offer gastro specialties to the empty-stomached fair visitor. So, it’s really worth exploring the fair and pick something from the ample selection!
