Christmas Market

In Europe at Christmas time many cities, towns and villages hold a Christmas market.  Warsaw is no exception.  People come to set up stalls with their wares. Typically you can buy traditional foods and handicrafts- whatever the country is famous for.  In Poland when it is cold the beer and wine can be served mulled- nothing like sipping a warm, spiced beer while walking around the old town!

Here are a few photos on our journey.

This is the presidential palace with a light show lit on the elevation.

Our walk down Nowy Swiat towards the old town—notice there is no snow!!

The Bristol hotel.

Some of the market stalls with the Old Town square in the background.

Loads of people at Place Zamkowy.

However…..I still want snow!!
