The Week of St. Nicholas and Christmas Markets

Christmas atmosphere in Banská Štiavnica is one of the most beautiful ones. St. Nicholas market at Holy Trinity Square is associated with st. Nicholas’ arrival and turning on Christmas tree lights. One week later Kammerhof’s historical courtyard is brought to life; Štiavnica’s Christmas market regularly takes place here. It is one of the last opportunities to buy an interesting Christmas present or meet your friends before holidays. The best medicine for pre-Christmas stress of big cities is the Genius loci of Banská Štiavnica and the atmosphere over here.
