Where to buy a Christmas Tree in Krakow?

Where's the best place to buy them (in cities.. Krakow to be precise)?

I tried a market (Hala Targowa) earlier today but, quite frankly, it was rubbish.

What say you? Castorama?

(I hate those trees that have the top cut off and have that little piece of branch put in as a substitute... it shall not do!)

There must be lots of places, just have a drive around [or walk]. Nice buns by the way [in your profile picture].

Unfortunately I don't have a car. So They will have to be somewhere accessible by tram.

I bought mine yesterday (sunday's) on plac nowy where they have a small market from early morning till around noon.
Maybe it's not so helpfull for you, as next time will be on Sunday the day before Christmas.

I assume you are not going to be buying a particularly big one then? BTW did you misspell the word Christmas on purpose to be politically correct and not have the word Christ there or was it a simple typo? I am just curious. I assume the latter otherwise you probably would have written X.

@phtoa

It's nice to hear that you just bought yours with Christmas nearing. Where I live people have them up by the 1st of December. There seems to be popular belief in Britain [and the US too I am assuming] that December is Christmas. No, December is a month Christmas is in. Don't let the commercialisation of Christmas get you. If we listened to what the shops told us, Christmas would be a 3 month festival, beginning in October when Christmas themed stuff starts to get put out.

Typo.

I went to OBI today on Wielicka. They have loads at a reasonable price. I'm returning tonight with the better half - there were so many different types I got scared to talk to the sellers I ran away like a coward.

This INFURIATES me. I hate it when people put their tree up so early, by the time the celebrations begin the tree is dead! My mum always used to put the tree up on Christmas Eve. This was in the UK. Most of my friends thought it was ******* to do so. Got one over on my friends though... the angels used to bring ours when we had a nap.

Why do you need the tree ?

Might be because it's going to be Christmas soon? Just a thought.

Because Christmas is coming and we are celebrating Wigilia with my boyfriend's family at our flat. Wigilia needs a tree.

UPDATE:

I got an artificial one in the end. It looks nice though. I also managed to spend 200zl on decorations - the shame!. Basically if it glittered, I bought it. I'm *such* a magpie. Don't ever let me near anything shiny.

Yes but I mean what you actually celebrate then.

Oh....Here we go! Look I'm not going to discuss that here. Want to talk about it? Start your own thread.
