As has been the tradition for the past 20 years, the International Women's Club (IWC) will host Bratislava's traditional Christmas Bazaar in the city's PKO Culture and Leisure Centre on Sunday, November 21, the TASR newswire wrote.
The large event sponsored by the diplomatic and international community living in Slovakia will run from 10:00 to 16:00 and will be opened by Slovakia's First Lady, Silvia Gašparovičová.
"The principle of the Christmas Bazaar is the participation of embassies in Slovakia. Every country in Slovakia has its own booth where it sells products, souvenirs and various delicacies and specialities from its country. All the money that it raises will go to the International Women's Club, which will then use it for charitable purposes exclusively in Slovakia," IWC's Zora Inka Groholová told TASR.
"In past years, the collected sum reached Sk2 million (about €66,000) but last year using the euro it was €80,000," added Groholová.
