Listening to the Choir in Budapest Christmas Market

It was another pleasant trip to this beautiful Hungarian capital. It was my third visit to this city and I still want to come back again in the future.  Of course,  if I am given the chance and finances to visit it again.

My recent trip was  quite a special  one  because I  was able to  witness its Christmas markets. There are actually a lot of Christmas markets scattered around the city.

Here are the list of its locations:

Christmas Market on Vorosmarty Square: Nov. 16, 2013 – Dec.  31, 2013 (crafts stalls until Dec 24)
Budapest Basilica Christmas Market : Dec. 1, 2013 – Jan 1, 2014 (crafts stalls until Dec 31)

Budapest Nutcracker Festival at the Budapest Opera House: Nov.  30, 2013 – Dec.  31, 2013

Christmas Market at  the  Basilica  Square in Budapest, Hungary.

There are a lot of activities held during this season. There are many concerts during the Advent period, choir concerts, chamber music concerts, organ concerts, world music, jazz, swing, etc. I am trying to guess some of the musicians got some of their musical instruments like a mouthpiece case at musicians friend. This is a good site to shop for all your musical gadgets and instruments.

During my visit in Budapest, I witnessed a group of choir singing at the Cathedral Square. I might not be able to understand their language but I know that some and probably most of their songs were especially Christmas carols.

I was happy and contented witnessing this event held in one of the joyful season of the year, the Christmas season.   The market is almost ending now. I believed tourists and guests who witnessed the Christmas markets in Budapest had an unforgettable and great time in this lovely capital of Hungary. Yes, I did!

Have a wonderful Christmas celebration to one and all!
