Vörösmarty square Christmas market moves to the internet
The biggest annual Christmas market of Budapest, which has been chosen to be one of the best Christmas markets of Europe several times, was cancelled a couple of weeks ago due to the still rising number of Covid-19 cases in Hungary. The market has been organized for more than 20 years and annually about 800.000 people visit it. This year, they decided to make a website for craftsman and artisans that usually sell their products on the Vörösmarty square in Novembers and Decembers. This website is a page that collects the circa 50 craftsmen that participate in the program and introduce them and their products with pictures and links, so it is not exactly a web shop where you can buy their products, too. Here is the website, if you would like to have a look: https://budapestikaracsony.hu/
