Budapest's Advent Feast at Basilica Voted Best Christmas Market in Europe
Budapest’s Advent Feast at the Basilica, the annual Christmas market in front of St Stephen’s Basilica, has been voted the best market of its kind in Europe for the second time in three years.

The Christmas market topped the European Best Destinations travel website’s poll with some 25,000 votes from 163 countries, the company told MTI.

A total of 173,620 votes were cast in the ten-day poll, with the Advent Feast at the Basilica even topping the votes from the United Kingdom and the United States.

The Basilica Christmas market came second in last year’s poll after being voted the best European Christmas market for the first time in 2019.

The 11th annual Advent Feast at the Basilica is open to visitors until Jan. 1.

It features a photo exhibition, an ice rink, a selfie spot, a 3D light show projected onto the facade of St Stephen’s Basilica and around 100 arts and crafts and culinary exhibitors.

Visitors are required to present their Covid immunity cards before entering.
