The 23rd year of an international organ music festival Trnava Organ Days welcomes renowned organ players.  Cycle of concert performances is held in a magic gothic St. Nicolas Basilica.

The international festival Trnava Organ Days brings the best organ players into Trnava since 1996 already. During the twenty year tradition, many renowned interprets have been introduced in "Little Rome" - organ player David di Fiore, Ivan Sokol, Ai Yoshida or Olivier Latry.

Organ concerts are held at a place that has a really rich musical tradition - in the St. Nicolas Basilica, connected to the name and life of the national artist Mikuláš Schneider-Trnavský. He accepted the position of a local choirmaster after his return to Trnava from his studies and he became interpreter of several important sacral songs.

The songs echo through the playing organs in St. Nicolas Basilica including the oldest preserved organ in Trnava - organ positive by Valentino Arnold from 1783.
