2. Sibiu, Romania

When? 20th November - 26th November

Although only hosted for a few days, this is Romania's most vibrant Christmas market, located in the town's Grand Square, where the most gorgeous Baroque architecture provides the backdrop to stalls selling everything from roasted almonds and toffee apples to handmade presents. Decorated with more fairy lights than the Coca Cola truck, Sibui's market is a sight to behold at night.
