Every year at the end of November Bratislava changes into a Christmas city. A majestic Christmas tree stands in front of the Opera House right next to the ice rink full of children. The two most important squares in the city fill with stands selling different types of products. So what can you expect from the Christmas markets in Bratislava?
You can find here all the traditional goodies such as potato cakes, meat or strudel. Would you like to buy Christmas souvenirs or something festive for your friends and relatives? There is a great choice of decorations, toys, ceramics or accessories.
To make yourself warm try one of the hot drinks or honey liquor medovina. It is quite strong and very tasty. Our favourite thing is definitely the trdelnik. This typical pastry is baked by turning around, then rolled in sugar and mixed with nuts, cinnamon or coconut.
To end up your Christmas experience in the best possible way head to the City Council. Climb the stairs up to the tower and enjoy the breathtaking view. With all those lights the city looks simply magical!
