Christmas at the Old Town Hall

BRATISLAVA City Museum has prepared two exhibits for the Christmas season.

One is a large-scale nativity scene, which was erected in the courtyard of the Old Town Hall on December 1. The scene and the figures are the work of 10 Slovak woodcarvers.

The other display is a children's exhibition entitled Christmas Bridges Between Towns, which opened in the museum on November 29. On show are art works with Christmas motifs created by children from Prague, Brno, Vienna, Krakow and Bratislava. The works, which will be shown in all those cities, symbolise imaginary bridges joining the five cities together. The exhibition is open daily except for Monday from 10:00 to 18:00 and on Sunday from 11:00 to 18:00. Both events will run through January 6, 2003.
