Warsaw’s Christmas market will enchant visitors from 24. November 2018 – 6. January 2019, and is one of the most beautiful festive markets in Poland. During the festive season you will find an abundance of Christmas Markets in Warsaw, and for five weeks you will be able to enjoy the aromas and flavours of mulled wine, beer and liqueurs after the traditional Christmas pastries and delicacies. The market square, “Rynek”, in the centre is filled with stalls selling festive cloths, hand painted glass Christmas tree ornaments, ceramics, jewelry, candles, amber, books, slippers, dolls, and carved wood decorations,a selection of gifts and wonderfully flavoursome Polish foods, which include the likes of deli meats, regional cheese, unpasteurized beer, hot chocolate, grilled sausages, rustic bread and sweets. Also look out for the wonderfully decorated Christmas tree located in Aleje Jerozolimskie at Plac Defilad, in front of the Palace of Culture and Science. Mulled wine (grzaniec),which is served from huge wooden kegs, is the most popular drink of Polish Christmas markets, and can be found in the market stalls. The warm mugs, wafting the scents of cloves and cinnamon, are a great way to thaw out frozen hands on a chilly December evening.
