Do you want to enjoy the right Advent atmosphere? Lure of Trnava before Christmas is indefinable and during your stay in "Little Rome" you'll collect also unforgettable experiences. So mark from the 30th November to the 22nd of December into your calendar.

A plenty of culinary specialities, world mead and wine, craftsmen and other handmade products by Slovak sellers are awaiting you in the Advent market in the Trinity Square. Their opening is on the 1st of December and besides Christmas mood and Christmas tree light up you can look forward to performance by Adam Ďurica, a famous Slovak singer.

We have heard that St. Nicholas is packing his bags and is about to come to Trnava. On Wednesday, the 5th of December, he is coming to delight all the children to a square called after him. Angels, devils and Nicholas's sledge won't be missing. Come at 5:15 p.m. to welcome this honoured guest and to light up the St. Nicholas Square together with him. After that, we move to Trinity Square, where Fíha Tralala Baby Band is having a performance at 6 p.m.

Also this year, one of the most beautiful localities in Trnava's centre welcomes traditionally period craftsmen during Medieval Christmas  market. Drop by for a cup of hot Christmas punch served in original period jugs. Taste poppy, walnut or cooker pancakes with a fair portion of butter and get to know medieval crafts. Live animals like sheep, ducks and geese won't be missing. Live Advent calendar brings lots of performances several times a day.
