Using a symbolic Christmas lantern, Slovakia's First Lady Silvia Gašparovičová together with President Ivan Gašparovič and children from three children's homes lit up the Presidential Palace in Bratislava on Monday, December 6, to mark Saint Nicholas Day, the TASR newswire wrote.
Pedestrians walking across one of Bratislava's busiest central squares will have a chance to spot the freshly lit-up Christmas tree in the Palace's courtyard. In line with the tradition, the presidential couple spent St. Nicholas Day in the company of kids from children's homes – this time with those from homes in Trnava, Nižná Kamenica (Košice region) and Istebné (Žilina region).
