The magic of the old Christmas is most alive in the ancient wooden churches. Located in quaint villages off the beaten path, these treasures are often too far east for people to visit. We will take you there! To warm up, we will stop at a local distillery to discover the age-old tradition of herbal and fruit spirits that our ancestors considered a medicine.
Taking a cable cart to the second-highest mountain in Slovakia is an experience you will never forget! The views from the peak over the frozen land are breathtaking. Followed by the Christmas market in Poprad, it is the perfect winter day.
When the best-preserved manor in Slovakia drapes itself in Christmas splendor for a few weeks only! Peak into the life and Christmas of one of the most powerful Aristocratic families that once ruled Slovakia.
Take an easy walk around the frozen Štrbské Pleso and get cozy in one of its cafés and restaurants. Dare to try the famous Slovak flaming tea! We will enjoy the afternoon like true locals, in a pool of natural thermal water that attracts people from abroad thanks to its healing properties.
Košice, the metropolis of the east, is the second largest city in Slovakia. In Advent time, it turns into a fairytale. The lights, the market, the stunning architecture, the city invites you to revel in its holiday atmosphere.
We will wrap up the journey with a visit to a picturesque traditional village to experience the charm of a real folk Christmas spirit. This is Christmas how our ancestors celebrated it! From carols to traditions and folk crafts, it will touch your heart and bring back memories.
We will journey back to Bratislava.
