Strolling, choosing Christmas decorations, looking for original gifts, buy local products to share them at the Christmas table, and tasting typical snacks, accompanied by hot wine, beer, or with tea flavored with spices and fruits of the season – are some of the activities Poland offers during Christmas time. In many cities the markets also become attractive cultural spaces where carol concerts and exhibitions are held, or where you can admire beautiful nativity scenes.

At the end of our walk we will reach the Wawel Hill, where the Wawel Castle is located - the former headquarters of the Kings of Poland and the cathedral (with Sigismund Bell, the biggest in Poland). Krakow's Main Square, being one of the largest in Europe, dazzles with its Christmas display.

The rest of the day will be free to enjoy the Wroclaw Christmas Market consisting of 160 stalls, which occupy a large part of the Market Square. The walk through the market will be like a culinary trip around the world.

The Christmas market is not only a commercial event, but also a place for shows and presentations. One of the characters present during the evento is the dwarf: formerly a political and artistic symbol, today, a symbol of Wroclaw.
