Christmas Main Market 2022

24.11.2022 - 22.12.2022

And of course, we cannot forget the Christmas Market on the Main Square.

The 🎁Christmas Main Market returns to the city centre after a two-year break.

🎄 The Christmas tree is already standing on the Main Square and during these days the preparations and construction of the first Christmas stalls have started. From 24 November to 22 December, Bratislava residents, as well as visitors, can look forward to a varied offer of Christmas specialties, traditional Slovak and international cuisine, gifts, as well as a rich cultural programme.

The concept of the markets will be a continuation of 2019, when the city introduced several innovations such as the possibility of cashless payment by card, consistent waste sorting and the introduction of returnable cups and compostable dishes. The aim is to bring a diverse range of vendors again this year, where the non-profit sector or cultural institutions operating in the capital will also be represented.

✨The opening ceremony with the lighting of the Christmas tree and a cultural programme will take place on 25 November.

The opening programme in the Main and Franciscan Squares will be full of music and spoken word.

📖Thursdays will be dedicated to live readings by Slovak actors and actresses at 17:00.

🎸Fridays and Saturdays will bring a pleasant atmosphere to the squares with concerts by well-known and less well-known Slovak musicians at 20:00.

👪Sunday offer will delight families with children from 14:00.

🎶Famous personalities of social and cultural life share with us their favourite Christmas songs and wishes to delight people in the squares. In cooperation with music dramaturge Pavel Hubinák, they are creating special Christmas playlists that will accompany the Christmas Main Market.

🆕A novelty of the market will be the stand of the capital of Bratislava with an offer of exceptional and original gifts from the specially prepared edition “Bratislava Icons”.
