The Sibiu Christmas market in Romania is one of the most visited in the country and is scheduled to open on November 26, according to Romania-Insider.
The event, a major tourist draw for the city, wasn’t held last year because of the pandemic and it will be open until January 2.
“The access will be made based on the Covid-19 pass. Under current regulations, there will be a limit on the number of people that can enter the market at a given time to prevent crowding,” the organizers said.
“There will be no concerts this year, but attractions such as the panoramic wheel, the skating rink and the video projections on the buildings in the city’s Grand Square (Piaţa Mare) will be available,” Andrei Drăgan Răduleț, the organizer of the fair, announced.
“We reduced the number of stalls by approximately 30% and increased the available area. Some elements, which took up a lot of space, like the children’s train, have been eliminated […] Some visitors will have less to see, but for the rest there will be more space available,” added Răduleț, quoted by Mediafax.
The Sibiu City Hall announced that the Sibiu fair also partnered with the City Hall for a Covid-19 vaccination campaign. Between November 12 and November 21, Santa’s House in the Grand Square turns into a vaccination centre.
In Bucharest, Mayor Nicuşor Dan said a Christmas Market would be organized in the University Square if the epidemiological situation allows for it.
