In addition to small Christmas markets in Lisbon, Stockholm, Bruges, Tallinn, and Innsbruck, only one city represents Hungary on the list: Debrecen.

The period at the end of November and December is all about preparing for Christmas, while cities also try to enchant their residents and visitors with a festive, intimate atmosphere. The Travelmag magazine took the most charming squares and fairs in Europe one by one and organized them into a list of 20, which included Debrecen and Debrecen Advent.

The newspaper described the weeks leading up to the Debrecen holiday as the second-largest city in Hungary really coming to its senses. Concerts, market stalls in front of the Great Church, hand-made ceramics, and special handicraft products await those interested. They praised the candle-lighting ceremony connected with the parade, as well as the rich program of the four weeks before Christmas. The 750-square-meter skating rink and the “mini Christmas village” created for children also confirmed for the authors of the article that the Debrecen fair deserves a place in the compilation.
