Christmas Fair in Red Square
December 24, 2019 12:28


The largest winter fair of the year traditionally opens in the main square of Moscow in late November and runs until the end of February. Here you can not only purchase fancy things - from fashion clothes and souvenirs to delicious Christmas treats - but also ride a merry-go-round or go ice skating and take part in fun entertainment programs.
Colorful garlands, Christmas symbols and New Year's attributes, fairy-tale characters and colorful illumination create a festive atmosphere that embraces you from the very first minutes of visiting the fair.



In the malls you can find the most incredible things: delicacies and goodies for the Christmas feast from around the world, warm handmade scarves and mittens, Russian earflaps, samovars, Christmas tree decorations and toys, antique dishes and sculptures.
A significant place is also taken by handicrafts, which will make excellent home decorations and New Year's gifts: decorative dishes in the style of Gzhel or Khokhloma painting, wood carved spoons and toys, and certainly a rich variety of Matryoshkas, the famous Russian nesting dolls.



In outdoor cafes at the Christmas fair in the heart of Moscow you can taste Russian native drinks like mead and sbiten, as well as taste traditional local pies, pancakes and other mouth-watering delicacies of Russian cuisine.



To top it all, the fair running just next to Moscow Kremlin attracts both children and adults with an abundance of entertainments. Here you can go ice skating or ride on a merry-go-round, take part in contests and raffles, arrange a photo session against the backdrop of New Year's attributes in the festively decorated Red Square.



On holidays, clowns and musicians perform, and various master classes are held at the fair, not to mention engaging shows with Father Frost and Snow Maiden.

All comers are welcome to the magic Christmas fair in the heart of Moscow for free.
When: from November 30, 2019, to February 28, 2020.
Open hours: from 11 am to 10 pm on Monday through Thursday; from 10 am to 11 pm on Friday, Saturday, Sunday.
