Kyiv is a popular winter vacation destination with holiday markets offering hot, fresh local food and drinks, outdoor concerts and beautiful holiday displays.

This year, as every year, across Ukraine locals and guests alike stream into central Kyiv  to enjoy the Christmas markets at various locations and to see what some have described as one of Europe’s most beautiful Christmas trees this year.

Along with the famed Christmas tree, Sofiivska Square hosts multiple live music shows for Christmas and New Year celebrations that  run through Jan. 13,(as most Ukrainians celebrate Christmas in January according to the Orthodox Christian calendar).
