The small city of Trikala in Greece’s northwest hosts an annual smart Christmas market with autonomous vehicles and robots that deliver Santa’s letters, CGTN has reported.

The festive market attracts around 40,000 visitors every weekend.

“Here in the city of Trikala we have fully autonomous vehicles travelling around the city centre,” software engineer, Loukas Vavitsa, said about the market.

“We did this before in 2015, but back then the vehicles used dedicated bus lanes and now they’re part of normal traffic.”

The Christmas village also sends out ‘Santa’s helpers,’ which are small robots that deliver Santa’s letters to those who still write to him.
