This Sunday, the First Lady visited the Christmas Bazaar again. The 15th Bazaar was held by the International Women’s Club in Bratislava’s Old Market Hall. The First Lady viewed stands in which lady representatives of particular countries from all the world presented their typical products and Christmas delicacies.
"The atmosphere here is wonderful, drawing me even closer to Christmas. The idea of a charity bazaar of the International Women’s Club, establishing the tradition of charity bazaars, is marvellous. I really admire the women who can prepare such an amazing event. Embassies present traditional products, Christmas delicacies and cakes of their own countries. On the counters you can see everything possible typical for particular countries. The fact that the proceeds will be used for charitable purposes is a beautiful idea, and I truly believe that events like this one will become more and more popular", responded the First Lady to the question from journalists on how she liked the Bazaar’s atmosphere.
