Kraków ranked among CNN’s world’s best Christmas markets

One of Poland’s Christmas markets has been ranked among the top 10 of CNN’s world’s best Christmas markets. The news portal reviewed Christmas markets from across the globe saying that due to usual snowfall around this time of the year, the market in Kraków is even more magical than some of the big name markets in western Europe.


The news portal CNN released their list of this year’s top destinations for fans of Christmas markets, reviewing markets from around the globe. Unsurprisingly, most of the destinations in the list are European with the Christmas market in Toronto being the only non-European one making it onto CNN’s list.

Ranking among the world’s best Christmas markets, this is what CNN said about Kraków – For anyone dreaming of a white Christmas, Krakow delivers. The city’s Christmas market, held in Rynek Glowny, the city’s huge main square, typically gets a heavy dusting of snow during December, making a visit here even more magical than some of the big name markets in western Europe. Hand-painted Christmas baubles are a local specialty, as are spiced nuts and boiled candies -.

The list of CNN’s world’s best Christmas markets included the following destinations:

Gendarmenmarkt, Berlin, Germany
Strasbourg, France
Viennese Christmas Market, Vienna, Austria
Grand Christmas Market, Montreal, Canada
Old Town Square and Wenceslas Square, Prague, Czech Republic
