The main square of Bratislava will once again be able to boast of a powerful Christmas tree. Only today (November 2) it was moved from Chrobáková Street in Dúbravka to the city centre.
Giant in the main square
The giant was accompanied by cars and police patrols. For now, he will “watch” the unadorned area of the Old Town Hall.
The tree in the main square measures 15 meters and weighs 2.1 tons.
“It’s a surreal fir from a donor from Dúbravka. The fir grew in the garden, where it broke into the family home, so it had to be removed anyway. Every year the municipal forests of Bratislava choose for their Christmas trees such trees that still have to be The owners have to cut it. A Bratislava spokeswoman, Katrina Raganova, informed Bratislava.
The Christmas fir has a cylindrical crown, it has about 5 centimeters of round silver needles. This species originally comes from North America, but it also thrives in our latitudes.
The date of lighting the Christmas tree is not yet clear.
Christmas markets, which are set up by the capital, should take place from November 26 to December 22 in the main square and Franciscan square. Their system will adapt to the current epidemiological situation. The city does not rule out that if it is critical, it will consider opening the markets.
There will be more trees
The tree will also be added in Hvizdoslav Square, where this year’s Christmas markets are set to go on sale from November 26 to December 23. Unlike last year, when traditional Christmas kiosks were replaced with flexible food trucks, this time the Old Town is preparing to sell a classic kiosk. However, here it will also depend on the state of the epidemic.
The Christmas atmosphere will be complemented by Christmas lights and a Christmas tree also in front of the historic SND Building. A Christmas tree should also be added on the Rázus Bridge near Propeller.
The Old Town Christmas Markets 2021 event will only take place if Bratislava I – V districts will be inside the COVID vending machine in orange max, i.e. degree of vigilance. The event will be in OTP mode.
