Sounds of the coiner's hammer stamping coins, melting beeswax to make candles, scent of honey and fir-needles floating in the air - this is the Medieval Christmas Market, which invites you to enjoy the special magic of Christmas at the oldest fair in Trnava.
One weekend before Christmas
, the period craftsmen pitch a camp in the oldest square in Trnava - St. Nicolas Square
and create a medieval atmosphere. They offer their handmade products, untraditional culinary specialities or a hot period Christmas punch.

far away from frantic shopping and Christmas preparations. Drop by for a glass of hot Christmas punch served in traditional period jugs, taste poppy and nut English muffins with a fair portion of butter. Get to know the medieval crafts: handmade candles, coin mintage, arch production or smiths' skills and for the first time also artistry of leatherworkers.
A Christmas crib is not missing. But with live figures and animals. If you drop by they sing you a Christmas carol - Silent night. For the smallest ones there is a medieval carousel prepared driven by human power.

capital. If you are patient and wait till sun set, you will be pleased by the special, and even fabulous Christmas atmosphere created thanks to the cresset called "genius loci"
