Gdansk was the sole representative of Poland. Thanks to over 48.000 votes we finished second (several years later we also climbed the podium but one step lower). Now we can officially use the title of 2. Best Christmas Market 2023. We were beaten only by Budapest and barely (51.000 votes).

Behind us such amazing cities as: Brussels, Essen, Madrid, Vienna, Tallin, Edinburgh or Prague!

In general more then 374.000 votes were cast from 179 countries worldwide. Most of them came from UK (33%) and what might seem a little bizarre, USA (13,3%).

More about the competition can be found HERE.

Citizens of Gdansk have yet again proven that impossible is nothing. So a big thank you to all who voted for us and have a wonderful Christmas!
