German Christmas market in Sofia

A traditional German Christmas market has opened in Sofia near the Ivan Vazov National Theatre in the City Garden.

The market features mulled wine, sausages, roasted chestnuts, traditional German stollen and gingerbread.

To assist social causes, the organisers have made available two stalls to give various foundations the opportunity to present the initiatives for which they are raising funds.

The market will be open until December 21, daily from 11am to 9pm.
