Christmas Market, Budpaest

What a treat.

Situated in the Vorosmarty Square on the Pest side of the Danube is the annual Budapest Christmas. With more than 100 stalls, it takes up the whole square and more, and there really is everything you could possibly wish to browse and possibly buy. There is a never ending array of food and drink and even in a week eating breakfast, lunch and dinner you'd be hard pressed to sample everything the market has to offer.

With drinks ranging from the usual suspects of mulled wine and warm milk with caramel to grog, different beers and spiced schnapps you're never a warm cupful away from comfort, not to mention the food options with a range from run of the mill roasted chestnuts to rooster testicle stew with every posible variation of sausage in between: liver, buffalo, pork, beef, and many more besides.

More an array of photos than anything else, so feast your eyes on some of these beauties.

It wasn't just food though of course so below are just a few snaps of some of the random tid-bits one could purchase for the festive period and beyond.
