Christmas fairs have become a huge tourist winter attraction all over Europe. Tourists travel from all over North America to many European countries primarily visiting Christmas markets . These tourists buy rather expensive tours whereby guides take them from city to towns in individual and even in varied countries visiting Christmas markets. it has become a very popular tourist destination.
Lviv too has a great Christmas market – called the ” YARMOROK” . It is composed of a series of Swiss – like wooden cabins where vendors sell absolutely everything under the sun as Christmas gifts. most of the items for sale are locally hand made – Beautiful hand woven scarves, tukes, slippers, and even parkas are brought in from the Carpathian mountains where sheep’s wool is plentiful. Pure bees- wax candles are also very big sellers .
There are many kiosks selling food from the traditional perigees and cabbage rolls to more contemporary fare like candies apples and pretzels. table and stools are strewn about so that the buying public can take a break and just soak in the atmosphere. here, local musicians serenade and costumed vendors add colour and drama.
We at Lviv Apartments believe that the markets in Lviv are far more unique and original than in other European centres as Lviv is still untouched by mass commercialism. Also, very important, the cost of items at the Lviv Christmas market are still very affordable.
Come enjoy the Lviv Christmas market before it becomes such a destination you will not be able to afford it.
