Live Performance at the Christmas Market in Bratislava

The weather was not really friendly during our trip to Slovakia's capital city. It was raining and snowing and also very cold. I am thankful that I did wore perfect winter jacket and a very comfortable leather boots. The weather did not stopped me from walking around the city and visiting some of its Christmas Markets. It is held in this 3 areas, Hviezdoslavovo Square, Main Square and Frantiskanske Square.

The squares fill up with wooden booths with vendors offering traditional Slovak Christmas decorations and gifts and a variety of traditional food and drinks.

During my visit I am lucky to watch some of its live public performances especially in Hviezdoslavovo Square and Main Square. I believed, witnessing the live choir singing Christmas songs was one of the highlights of my visit there. I also witnessed street performers when I went walking around the city center especially in the old city. One was playing a kind of flute and I was wondering if he is using a brand name gemeinhardt. I read online that it is one of the largest makers of quality flutes and piccolos in the world. Some musicians were also playing guitars along the narrow streets of Bratislava.

I wish, I had more time exploring the city but since our time was limited, I was not able to visit most of its sights including its castle. This might be one of the reasons why I want to visit there again.

Have a great holiday season to everyone!
