Christmas markets

Bratislava is truly magical in the time before Christmas. If you are considering visiting the city before Christmas, you’ll be thrilled. The Christmas market in Bratislava has a long tradition and creates its own small city within a city. Each year, the markets can be found on Hlavné námestie, Hviezdoslavovo námestie, Františkánske námestie, Primaciálne námestie, Courtyard of the Old Town Hall and Námestie Milana R. Štefánika. The cute red and white stands attract visitors to get a taste of traditional Slovak delicacies and mulled wine from local winemakers. The Christmas atmosphere is perfectly complemented by traditional music programmes and ice rinks in the city centre.
