Live Nativity scene enhances Christmas atmosphere in Trenčín

"This is appealing to me; it's livening up the square," a local said.

The scenes will be staged at 17:30 on December 21-23. The square is also playing host to a Christmas market with seasonal arts and crafts and a cultural program on a stage in the centre. TASR
