    Poland diseno-sin-titulo-57

The Christmas market in Krakow takes place every year on the city’s huge central square, Rynek Glowny, in the middle of the Old Town historic district. It’s hard to trace the origin of this long tradition because the square has always been the major venue for diverse trade and the business naturally switched to Christmas-related merchandise with the approach of the festive season.

Nowadays the Krakow Christmas market materializes in late November, in the shape of scores of wooden stalls. They sell a wide range of varied Christmas decorations, gifts, toys, sweets and other foods, cards, etc. Besides shopping one can savor hot, nutritious dishes alfresco and/or help oneself to mulled wine. Another attraction is the occasional free entertainment, usually provided by children ensembles and village artists performing carols. Also local artisans, such as blacksmiths and carvers, present their crafts.

It’s a great city if you want to escape the mulled wine and roasted chestnut frenzy that most other cities offer at Christmas, as Lisbon is where you can enjoy cherry liqueur, honey cakes and egg custard tarts instead. Don’t have to mentioning the huge number of Erasmus people leaving there.

    Spaindiseno-sin-titulo-61

A truly unique Spanish Christmas tradition is Hogueras de Navidad, a pagan fire ritual celebrated primarily in Granada and Jaen on December 21st. According to folklore, people who jump over fires in the shortest day of the year (winter solstice) will be protected from illness, so that’s exactly what they do. This custom can only be seen in Spain and is a really exciting show to watch.

Having spent the weeks prior to Christmas wandering amongst its streets, it is clear that Barcelona has a lot to offer at this time of year. The old buildings, narrow streets of the old town and friendly atmosphere make it a atmospheric winter destination. Also, Spain is well-known from its high temperatures during this period of the year.
