It’s basically impossible to travel to Europe in December without seeing a Christmas market — where wooden stalls serve mulled wine and warm food, and souvenirs or other trinkets are basically a seasonal rite of passage. Thing is, Ostrava’s Souznění takes it up a level and is an entire advent festival. As well as the iconic markets, the program includes events like film screenings, exhibits, and live music around the city. Performances of traditional and modern music are held inside churches and historical venues, and carolers perform in the city square. The celebration ends on a Sunday with a big gala concert and amazing performances. The festival takes place each December.
