Since winter holiday time is upon us the whole market square is being transformed into a Christmas market (Weihnachtsmarkt; jarmark bożonarodzeniowy) kind of a place. Every year it gets more and more festive. I was afraid it would be over the top and in-your-face but actually this year it was kind of neat. Me and my neighbors decided to take a stroll around the city center this one frosty night. I got off work early and met up with them by the city hall. The girls took some nice pictures and I decided to use them for my blog as well ;)
I believe the tradition of ice sculptures contests in Poznań started last year or so. I just love the way those works of arts are illuminated at night. As always, you can find a bunch of food stands surrounding the whole area. Definitely tourist friendly! I strongly urge you to try some grzaniec if you never had any, which makes the whole winter experience complete :)
