This year Tallinn became Best Christmas Market in Europe according to European Best Destinations
Following tradition, the Tallinn Christmas Market will open its stage and sales kiosks this year in order to make it possible for us to enjoy the Christmas spirited fairy tale land as long as possible. In the Town Hall Square, there is already erected a fluffy Christmas tree, the symbol of Christmas, which for the first time in the world was erected right here in 1441. The Tallinn Christmas Market delights everyone with its coziness, historical location, half a century old buildings and long traditions. In recent years, the Tallinn Christmas Market has become increasingly visible in the foreign media; it is has a number of times been elected as one of the best in the tens of thousands of Christmas markets.
This year, the glances are captured with the heart-shaped ornaments on the Christmas tree towering in the center of the Raekoja Square and on the stage. Heart-shaped decorations were chosen to decorate the Christmas Market for a number of reasons – the heart is a symbol of love, and Christmas is probably one of the most heartfelt holidays in general. But also Tallinn Old Town, the venue of Tallinn Christmas Marketplace, is heart-shaped when viewed from the air, and the City Center advertises itself as the heart of the city!
