Die Morina

Hot wine at the Christmas Market, or so-called End of the Year Market, has become a traditional tipple for shoppers and passers-by in Pristina over the festive period, and a favourite drink to consume after working hours or in the evening.

The market has a cozy atmosphere where, while browsing among the handcrafts and other gifts, sipping a cup of tea, a hot chocolate or a hot glass of wine is almost unavoidable.

The market is located in the main square of Pristina, where the New Year's Eve celebration is due to take place under the patronage of the municipality.

The Mayor of Pristina, Shpend Ahmeti, says that around 100 businesses have applied to be part of this market, promising that, taking this fact to consideration, they will try to have a more huts available for next year.
