WHAT’S OPEN DURING CHRISTMAS?

christmas-holidays-bratislava-2015

According to Slovak law, the majority of shops needs to be closed on 24th December after 12:00, on 25th and 26th December and on Easter Sunday. So you can imagine it can get quite tricky to find a place where you could go during the Christmas days – we have done quite some research on where you actually can go without the fear of being locked out, to dine out, party or even find a last minute present. These places have announced the special open hours on their webpage or Facebook (unfortunately not all our favorite gems have done so far). The list will be updated, shall we find other spots that are open during the mentioned days. Hope that will be helpful!
