To market, to market to buy some glühwein...

European cities are known for their Christmas markets.  Some are better than others.  This year we hit up Prague, Dresden, and of course Budapest.

Prague, Czech Republic...
Most beautiful square,
Most made-in-China crap to buy,
Best place to hang out with friends,
Best beer,
Most picturesque.

Dresden, Germany...
Most medieval,
Best craftsmanship knick-knacks to buy,
Best rebuilt city (demolished during World War 2 by the Americans, but rebuilt to look like it did before),
Best place to get new mulled wine (glühwein) mugs - even got one from 2011 this year... Hmmm,
My favorite market so far.

Budapest, Hungary...
Best market to buy pottery,
Best market for mulled wine,
Or any wine,
Best place to go out with girlfriends during Christmas,
The market that now feels like home.
