Every single euro spent at the traditional Christmas Bazaar will go to charity.
The 28th year of the event held in the Old Market Hall in Bratislava was organised by the International Women’s Club of Bratislava (IWCB), in cooperation with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Bratislava Municipality and the diplomatic community.
Meeting the world
Representatives from as many as 40 countries were present to introduce themselves and their culture to the local community.
“I’m pleased by the record number of participating countries,” Foreign Affairs Minister Miroslav Lajčák said, as quoted by the TASR newswire. “There are 40 countries presenting their cuisine and culture, so you can travel nearly the world under the Old Market Hall’s roof.”Related articleRead more
The bazaar is the biggest charity event of a diplomatic and foreign community in Slovakia.
“The main objective is to help, since the whole collection will go to charity organisations across the country,” said Katarína Korcová, the coordinator of the Christmas Bazaar, as quoted by the private news channel TA3.
Last year, about €92,000 was collected, Lajčák added.
