Vote and help Novi Sad be named Europe's best Christmas Market
The Christmas market has been held since 2016 and has brought a big tourist boom to Novi Sad this time of year
The website European Best Destinations, which works with the European Commission, has ranked the Novi Sad Winterfest among the best Christmas markets on the Old Continent.
"The Winterfest in Novi Sad, the second largest city in Serbia and the capital of the province of Vojvodina, is the first and oldest Christmas market in this country. Since 2016, Winterfest has attracted a large number of visitors from other parts of Serbia and countries in the region."
The biggest attraction is a big Singing Christmas Tree where choirs of children and adults from all over Vojvodina perform daily. As a multicultural province, the choirs sing in 10 different languages (Serbian, Hungarian, Slovak, Ruthenian, Croatian, Ladino, Yiddish, English, German and Russian)," reports the site www.europeanbestdestinations.com
About 50 small wooden houses are located in the historical center of Novi Sad, on Freedom Square. There is also a 'Straw Playroom' where children play with natural materials. After 30 years, organizers of the Winterfest have returned carriages to the Novi Sad streets, the site concludes.
In addition, the site recommends hotel accommodations in Novi Sad, as well as tours around Vojvodina and Belgrade.
Advent in Zagreb has been the best European Christmas market for several years, picked by this site, which has brought a major tourist boom to the Croatian capital during this part of the year.
Voting for the title of "the Best European Christmas Market" at this link: https://www.europeanbestdestinations.com/christmas-markets/novi-sad lasts until December 10.
