The dynamic and lively “Svoboďák” is a place for meeting, entertainment, and building new friendships, and it’s no different during Advent. Besides the Christmas tree, you’ll see a Christmas tram, passing through and a stylish refreshments area shaped like a star on the fountain. A popular nexus is the Zimní (Winter) bar offering punch, hot juice beverages, and ginger drinks. In addition to international specialities, the market offers representatives of the famed Brno food scene, and if you want to taste Brno, you should do so at this market.
The daily cultural and musical programme will warm the entire square – so even in winter Brno will live up to its title as a UNESCO City of Music. The stands will also be varied. You can taste a number of specialities at the market: Wallachian frgáls, French delicacies, American pancakes, Mexican cuisine, exotic fruit, and much more. There will also be stands with products that can be gifts under the tree for your loved ones.
Šalina does not just mean a popular mode of transport in Brno and the most well-known word in Hantec. Šalina means a legend, an icon, without which there would not be Brno Christmas. The Christmas tram is a unique means of transport that can regularly push through the crowds in the city centre without drawing outrage. Its Advent decorations light up people’s faces, and everyone wants a photo. How about first taking a ride? Christmas should not be about only shopping, but also shared experiences. Catch a Christmas tram and experience the most festive ride you can have on public transport. Learn more about the Christmas tram at dpmb.cz or the Facebook page of Dopravní podnik města Brna.
