Senate Square Christmas Market.

When we arrived here a lot of people told us the Christmas Markets were a must.  This picture is taken from the top of a huge set of stairs in front of a church. This is Senate square.
The booths are all in these small buildings, brought in for the temporary markets. There are other markets that are less well housed and are open all year, with more participating in better weather. 
Some people make crafts all year for their booths. Others are filled with commercial products. 
The old fashioned Merrygoround was a hit. 
The knit hats with yarn or fur poms are very popular here. 
This is a statue of Alexander the Second, often called the good czar because he allowed the them self rule during his reign, is a permanent feature of the square. 
Here he is shown with other market features.   It was fun to see a hay wagon ride being pulled through the streets too. 

It was a great outing.

  1. This is really unique and fantastic idea that people are promoting these products throughout the Christmas. Knit hats and handicrafts are really really nice and worth buying. Great post!
