Carnival in Bratislava

A PARADE of masks, performers, and musicians will fill the streets of Bratislava's centre from February 9 to 14 before the end of the period of dance and fun - Shrovetide or fašiangy. Visitors may look at a melting ice cube that hides a secret, or listen to an Immortal Double-Bass concert while eating traditional pretzels.
