This is what this annual event regularly held at the Bratislava castle is called. Free entry for everybody makes it a must-see place if you happen to visit this city at the end of May/beginning of June.

Slovak Food Festival in its beauty

What is it about? Imagine the best restaurants serving food to everybody to taste! Yes, that’s how good it really gets! Caterers not only from Slovakia but also the neighborhood Hungary, Austria and Czech republic come to present their cuisines from around the world.


You can watch chefs and cooks preparing the food on the spot in front of your eyes. No wonder the whole area around the castle smells like heaven for a few days :)
