The tenth Christmas fair traditionally was in sunny Alanya. For the first time organizers were not limited to one day. The Holiday was during Saturday and Sunday from 10 o’clock in the morning to 8 o’clock in the evening. There was fun, joy and aromas of traditional food of different countries from the city hall to the harbor.
Those who couldn’t get past this far took a piece of baking and mulled wine. There are craft things from all over the world on every Christmas fair. This time tourists and local residents could purchase jewelry and souvenirs made by the hand of Turkish, Russian and European masters and school children and students from the resort town at an affordable price.
Christmas fair is a place where everyone can taste national snacks and treats from Germany, the Nordic countries, Poland and Baltic. The holiday, of cause, is rich in local candies which are difficult to resist. Every year Russian society in Alanya generously treats everybody Russian New Year’s dishes: Olivier salad, ‘Dressed Herring’ salad and caviar on toast.
Christmas fair also is famous for its full concert program where Turkish and other foreign teams are involved.
Tourists from all over the world love to come to Alanya during this period in order not miss one of the most large-scale holidays in the city. Note that all the money raised will go to the charity.
