In Trnava, in addition to the traditional Christmas markets, you can also visit the Medieval Markets . Want to know what was sold in the markets during the Middle Ages? At the oldest market in Trnava, on the Square of St. Mikuláša from Friday 13.12. until Sunday 15.12. you will experience the scent of melting beeswax for the production of candles, chicory, honey and much more.
A big novelty is a hand-made live Advent calendar , in which several theatrical performances take place every day instead of sweets . There will also be live animals . A medieval carousel powered only by human power awaits the youngest. And if you are patient and wait for the day to turn into night, the unusual, even fairy-tale atmosphere of Christmas, what is called Genius Loci, will emerge before your eyes in the light of the torches.
We will move a few hundred kilometers to the east for our next event. More precisely to the metropolis of the east, Košice . The largest, the 32nd exhibition focused on a healthy lifestyle in Košice. Survive a relaxing pre-Christmas day, during which you can buy gifts for family, friends or friends. And all under one roof, in the heat, of course also with the atmosphere of Christmas - Christmas customs, the smell of mulled wine and punch, the taste of sweet treats, but also with the tasting of various teas and coffees. The markets take place on Friday and Saturday at Jedlíková 7 in Košice.
Now let's look at the absolute novelty, which will be a great pleasure for many. Veganism is coming to the fore more and more. It is healthy and, above all, it is a sustainable way to feed the growing population of the planet. From the 13th to the 23rd of December, be sure to stop in the area of the Umelka Pub garden at Šafárikovo náměstí in Bratislava and taste great specialties from vege and vegan food producers. Admission is of course free and an accompanying program is prepared every day . Buy small items for your loved ones and enjoy the pre-Christmas atmosphere.
It is only a short distance from Bratislava to Šenkvíce, where the local Carpate Diem winery has introduced a nice tradition, which they have been repeating for several years. It is a Christmas collection for the local non-profit CHARITA ŠENKVICE, but this punch will warm you on your body and soul. Šenkvice is for you on Saturday 14.12. prepared another specialty. It is a competition in cabbage cooking. Come taste and talk to the best cabbage "cookers". What are the right proportions and ingredients? How will the winning cabbage taste and what will be in it?
