Poland Christmas Markets Tour

Christmas Markets in Poland open at the end of November and end with the celebration of Epiphany on January 6th. It is a time full of joy and beautiful colorful lights that delightfully brighten both Krakow and Warsaw.  The two cities are very different, and they complement each other, offering you an unforgettable experience.

While in Krakow, you cannot miss the Nativity Scene tradition with a Christmas cribs contest as its highlight. The works are presented at the Market Square on first Thursday of December and later on in the Krakow Museum. The tradition is in the UNESCO List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity.

Warsaw is a great shopping destination. The main attractions are the Old Town market where you can find stalls full of souvenirs, art crafts and delicious local goodies. The highlight of the Christmas season is a marvelous Garden of Light in Royal Wilanow Gardens.

Travel to Poland for a winter holiday and experience a traditional Christmas season.
