Can anyone tell me if any cities besides Warsaw & Krakow have Christmas markets in the Rynek or Old Town Squares? I love the one in Krakow & the one in Warsaw this year is very nice. I have family visiting over the holidays & we wanted to see some other cities - Gdansk, Torun, Wroclaw......any thoughts?

Yes, Wroclaw has one... bigger than previous years.

Gdansk has one. It's not worth a visit.

I suppose all major cities in Poland hold such markets before Christmas.

I am trying to see the details of Krakow`s Market Square but it is too obscure. Have the stalls been set up already?

Ksysia, do you know that the tradition of a Christmas tree came to Poland from Austria and Germany in 18 century? :):):):)
