The COVID-19 pandemic is already taking its toll on the upcoming Christmas season. While Bratislava City Council, which organises the traditional Christmas markets on Main and Františkánske Squares, has decided to scrap them this year, the Old Town borough that holds the markets on Hviezdoslavovo Square has not come to a decision yet. The Christmas markets in Bratislava start in late November and close just before Christmas.
“Nevertheless, we are ready to bring the Christmas atmosphere to the streets of our city even during these trying times,” said Katarína Rajčanová, spokesperson of the city, adding that they will do this in a safe way, respecting any anti-coronavirus measures that may be valid at the time.
