Europe’s cheapest Christmas market has been revealed according to fresh research – with one person saying it was “perfect”.
Christmas is just six weeks away, and in half that time the Romanian town of Sibiu, in Transylvania, will open its doors to its famous market.
The market, called Fair, has been labelled the cheapest in Europe by travel money specialists at eurochange.
Laura Evans, head of Digital and Engagement at eurochange, said the market was one of the best “if you’re looking for value for money and a truly authentic experience”.
The decision was made on factors like the local exchange rate, hotel and flight prices.

Evans revealed hotels can cost “less than £20 per person, per night”, and a mulled wine can be “less than £2” – something “pretty much unheard of in the UK”.
The pretty little Christmas market will play host to both an ice skating rink and a Ferris wheel, as well as lots of beautiful wooden huts selling gorgeous gifts and cakes like Romanian Panettone and chimney cakes.
Opening on November 17 until January 2 and free to enter, visitors can enjoy the magical festival lights and youngsters can meet Father Christmas.
The picturesque Christmas market garnered some favourable reviews on Tripadvisor too.
