When do Christmas markets open in Bulgaria this year?
While Christmas market tradition isn’t as huge in Bulgaria as central European countries like Germany, Switzerland, France, or Austria – this is beginning to change, with many towns hosting Christmas and New Year bazaars throughout the festive season.
Looking for specifics, along with where to find more information? That’s why we created this page for you, so you can peep the opening dates for Bulgaria’s Christmas and New Year Markets and events quickly and at a glance.
