“Bucharest's University Square becomes a winter wonderland at Christmas time. If you're lucky there'll be snow to lend an extra touch of magic,” reads Bucharest’s presentation on Msn.com.
France’s capital Paris opens the list, followed by Berlin (Germany), Bucharest (Romania), Budapest (Hungary), Copenhagen (Denmark), Krakow (Poland), Edinburgh (Scotland), Helsinki (Finland), London (England), Madrid (Spain), Prague (Czech Republic), Rome (Italy), Warsaw (Poland), and Moscow (Russia).
Bucharest mayor Gabriela Firea turned on the Christmas lights in the city and officially opened the Bucharest Christmas Market in Constitutiei Square on December 1, when Romania also celebrated the National Day. Thousands of people attended the event.
