The best crafts, treats and gifts – visit the Christmas markets!
Christmas is coming and the people in Finland are tuning to the Christmas spirit! The best way to explore the original feeling of Christmas is probably visiting different Christmas markets! Christmas markets can be found at least from Helsinki, Tampere, Turku, Porvoo, Jyväskylä, Oulu and an all-year-long market from Rovaniemi where you can meet the Santa Claus every day.
The feeling in the markets is unique and kind of old-fashioned. Typically you can find, for example, different food stations and mulled wine or glögi as we call it, treats like gingerbreads and chocolate, local arts and crafts, toys, candles or basically anything you could need for a Christmas gift shopping day. It’s also worth going there just to feel the atmosphere.
