Merry Christmas in Budapest

Nativity scenes at the Christmas Market.

Shopping in the market - all handcrafted items!
Langos, a Hungarian specialty is baked in this dome shaped oven, and topped with onions, bacon, and sour cream!

Another annual Christmas tradition is to visit the Christmas market in Budapest. This is held in Vorosmarty Square and is a series of outdoor booths, filled with handcrafted gifts, toys, ornaments, and special foods (sausages, kabobs, langos, gingerbread cookies, hot tea, and mulled wine). They also have a live advent calendar displayed in the surrounding buildings' windows. There were numerous nativity displays that were also very beautiful. We were very glad to find free parking by the Danube River and the weather was sunny when we visited!
