From the 23rd of December to the 7th of January, the Strasbourg Fair is open for everyone on Manezhnaya square in Moscow. It is one of the most beautiful and largest Christmas fairs in Europe since 1570.
On the counters, there are various Christmas gifts and utensils. Besides, you can find here natural Christmas trees, Christmas-tree decorations and even French bakery. You can also participate in the master-classes for kids and grown-ups. At the fair, there are twenty wooden chalets, made in Strasbourg.
The master-classes can teach you how to make Christmas-tree decorations yourself.
