All the square is full with the Christmas market. Very well organised and clean. There are a lot of Romanian typical products. For the cold days I recommend the mulled wine.

Really a good square to walk around, enjoy the scenaries, and get some food which is not over crowded There are many beautiful buildings around. I felt this is a place to spent on cold season.
