Meet these 5 European cities that are perfect for spending Christmas
The most pleasant days of the year are approaching, days when we can share with family, friends, and couples; days to end in the best way and where many people take the opportunity to visit new places before the end of the year.
Today we bring our selection of the five perfect European cities to spend Christmas.
Vienna: The capital of Austria is in the eastern part of the country on the Danube River. Its residents shaped its artistic and intellectual legacy, including Mozart, Beethoven, and Sigmund Freud. The city is also known for its imperial palaces and historical and contemporary buildings that display magnificent works.
Vienna at Christmas has many activities, including Christmas markets, lights on, skating rinks, and much more. Without a doubt a site that is worth it.
Prague: The capital of the Czech Republic is divided by the Vltava River. It is nicknamed the “City of a Hundred Towers” and is known for the Old Town Square, the core of its historic center, with colorful baroque buildings, Gothic churches, and the medieval Astronomical Clock.
Christmas has reflected in the streets like any Central European city thanks to the wooden Christmas stands that flood the squares. There are many, and they sell Christmas objects of all kinds, as well as food.
Witches: The capital of West Flanders in northwestern Belgium is distinguished by its canals, cobblestone streets, and medieval buildings. The history of Bruges dates back to the 9th century when the Vikings founded it. The name of Bruges (Brugge) is believed to derive from the old Scandinavian word “Brygga,” which means “harbor” or “mooring place.
The activities during the holidays can be varied, among them, walking through its dozens of Christmas markets, eating in the street, riding in a fairground attraction, skating on an ice rink, watching one of its light shows, making yourself a photo on a giant Christmas tree, drinking a glass of mulled wine, among others.
Budapest: Capital of Hungary, through which the Danube River crosses. Budapest is one of the most photogenic cities in Europe. Its spectacular skyline is dotted with architectural marvels from the 19th century that stretch along the banks of the Danube. Numerous medieval bridges connect the two sides of the city, Buda, and Pest.
When we talk about how to enjoy the Christmas holidays, many ideas arise, such as shopping at Christmas markets, witnessing the light show of the Basilica, relaxing in the thermal baths, getting on the Christmas tram, enjoying a Budapest concert at Christmas, or maybe take a cruise on the Danube river.
London: London, the capital of England and the United Kingdom, is a 21st-century city with a history dating back to Roman times. The imposing Palace of Parliament, the iconic “Big Ben” clock tower, and Westminster Abbey stand at its center.
Walking through the streets of London takes on a unique charm these days. Everything is lit up with festive decor, shops impress with super-arranged window displays, and special Christmas events and fairs are held throughout the city.
If you want to take a tour of the streets of London that each year stand out more for their Christmas decorations, you should include the following on your list: Oxford Street, Regent Street, and Bond Street. The different London streets are lit up every year with millions of Christmas lights. The inauguration of the set is carried out with a special show that always features prominent artists.
Inside Hyde Park, a huge event can be considered the very paradise for Christmas lovers, Winter Wonderland. Inside the enclosure, you can find the largest outdoor ice skating rink in London, two circuses, Santa’s village and house, carousels, and other rides for children.
