Hammer bangs by a minter, fusing bees wax for candles production, smell of honey and spruce branches in the air - these are medieval Christmas markets that welcome you to enjoy the unique magic of Christmas in the oldest market place in Trnava.

One weekend before Christmas, the period craftsmen pitch a camp in the oldest square in Trnava - St. Nicolas Square and create a medieval atmosphere. They offer their handmade products, untraditional culinary specialities or a hot period Christmas punch.
Accept our invitation to spend a nice time in Christmas atmosphere far away from frantic shopping and Christmas preparations. Drop by for a glass of hot Christmas punch served in traditional period jugs, taste poppy and nut English muffins with a fair portion of butter. Get to know the medieval crafts: handmade candles, coin mintage, arch production or smiths' skills.
A Christmas crib is not missing. But with live figures and animals. If you drop by they sing you a Christmas carol - Silent night. For the smallest ones there is a medieval carousel prepared driven by human power.  If you are patient and wait till sun set, you will be pleased by the special, and even fabulous Christmas atmosphere created thanks to the cresset called Genius Loci.
