    Bratislava Music Celebrations :) sounds stupid but in Slovak it is Bratislavske hudobne slavnosti and it is worth to see. There are many great musicians and good music every year in the end of September and the beginning of October.

    Beer

    by easterntrekker Updated Sep 9, 2008

    We were surprised when we asked for a local beer they recommended Budweiser. We didn't know it the home of the Original Busweiser. We always thought it was American . We tried it and it is so much better in Bratsilava.

    Street Musician

    Street Musician

    In winter 2003/04 I saw on two days this street musician playing all kinds of instruments at the same time. He sung popular rock and pop songs for locals and visitors of the Old Town. I saw him at various locations, but often near Cumil. He seems to play in Bratislava quite often as I have already seen photos of him on other VT pages.

    Christmas in Bratislava

    Christmas lights in the Old Town

    Bratislava is well worth a visit around christmas time. The Streets of the Old Town are illuminated with nice christmas lights. Apart from that there are various stalls selling christmas products or offering food and drinks (e.g. hot punch). A wintry atmosphere can be enjoyed at Hviezdoslav Square (Hviezdoslavovo Namestie) where ice skating is possible.

    Street Fun

    Walk around the Old Town and you're sure to see plenty of people out and about enjoying the charm of the city. There are musicians and entertainers of all kinds and the great thing is, they don't all appear to be set up to cater exclusively to tourists.

    Kiosk

    This even takes place usually in each neighbourhood during last week of september.
    Typical is a special type of wine called "burciak", it's very young wine and it looks as it was used before but some people like it.
    So what we do during hody? We eat ducks, cabbage and then we go out and enjoy our day on a party called "Hodova slavnost" or we take a ride on a merry-go-round, or we eat lollypops (made only of sugar) and many many more....

    Christmas Bazaar 2003

    waiting for costumers

    This year there were really interesting stalls around the whole area of Old Market Hall and of course lot of curious people :) who wanted to try all possible cuisines and to buy typical stuff of countries. Cookies, destilates, sweets or other stuff was offered by natives from the country it represented and there was really great atmosphere. Once in a year the whole Globe under one roof for a good deed :) to help children worldwide.

    me-the half of the face on right

    Christmas Bazaar is taken place in Stara Trznica the first week in December. It is charity market organised by International Women club in Bratislava and there you can buy souvenirs, try delicious dishes and sweets from different countries because all "shop-assistants" are employees and ambassadors or their wives from all diplomatic missions acredited in Slovak Republic.

    This Sunday November 22, will be another round of this event. Don't miss it if you are near the city...

    It was Saturday and due to weekend plenty of local and tourist were heading towards the exhibition.
    I took this photo very early in the morning but in the afternoon, it got really busy.
    It was a shame that not many participants could speak English so I did not get much information about this exhibition.

    Free Drinks

    by Imbi Updated Oct 13, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    One stall was for local drinks; people were wearing typical Slovakian dress and serving people drinks.
    I tested that drink as it was some sort of wine and it was very good.
    Who does not like free drinks?

    I was lucky that I get the chance to see Cultural exhibition during my stay of Bratislava.
    The exhibition was organised in front of Museum and I really enjoyed the event.
    You get to know the culture more through these events.

    There was another stall where a man was hard at work with wood. I was also making pots with wood.
    I was surprised to see the how good he was. I think within five minutes he made a bowl from a log.
