On August 29, Slovakia will mark the 75th anniversary of the Slovak National Uprising (SNP). The celebration will take place in Banská Bystrica, the city which played a pivotal role in the SNP.
The novelty of this year's celebration is a multimedia exhibition about SNP, ceremonial military parade and evening programme with videomapping. There will be a mobile post office with postal stamp dedicated to the 75th anniversary of SNP.
The programme will start at 10:00 with a flight of the Armed Forces and wreath laying. There will be speeches by the highest constitutional officials alongside a rich cultural programme, including a Bratislava Hot Serenades concert that specializes in the authentic interpretation of the jazz music of the 20’s and 30’s.
