Very nice and good. When you come here remember to bring lots of clothes and winter wear. It was so cold here!

Pathetic. Maybe coming from a country with world class theme parks makes one jaded. This place is less exciting and less Christmas themed then a pop up Christmas store in a shopping mall. Don’t bother.

I think it is alright for your kids. They will love meeting Santa and reindeers. However santa park might be even more attractive for them. It needs entrance fee. For me, i like santa village a lot.
