From November 23, the most beautiful part of Bratislava will turn into a fairytale Christmas market. Until December 22, the Old Town smells of various delicacies and sounds with Christmas carols. It fills with a lot of people and good cheer.

The Bratislava Christmas Fair has a long tradition and brings together a large number of Bratislava's inhabitants and visitors each year during the Advent and the Christmas season to spend cheerful moments together. To take a Christmas Tram is the best way how to get to the fair.

Pre-Christmas time in Bratislava is inherently connected with glowing streets, Christmas trees and stands full of goodies and craft products. The traditional Christmas market in Bratislava is a great place for people getting together for eating and drinking traditional dishes and drinks as well as maybe do some small shopping. It is always pretty crowded and having a great atmosphere. Around 100 booths are opened every year.

As tradition has it, the Main Square will serve as the centre of the Bratislava Christmas Fair, with a stage for cultural programmes, stands with refreshments, and stands with Christmas merchandise and delicacies for sale. The main attraction at Františkánske Square will be the ice rink with refreshments and traditional charity stands alongside it.

The Christmas Market is not only located at the Main Square and Hviezdoslav Square, it will also take place in other locations. In recent years, the Christmas Market have migrated to other places of the city center as well, such as the square in front of the Eurovea shopping center.
