A unique exhibition of folklore life, traditions and habits not only from Slovakia. The international festival of folklore ensembles Trnava Gate welcomes folklore lovers with a rich offer of music, dance and traditional costumes.

Trnava, an important trade centre in medieval Hungary, opens its four gates to traders and craftsmen from all over the world. And so, following a magnificent history, it opens its gates for the thirteenth time now and the streets liven up with temperament folklore, folk culture and original habits. The festival background is the Trinity square every year, surrounded by church towers.

A pleasant atmosphere is enhanced thanks to the parade in folklore costumes who makes you sing and dance. The ensembles introduce themselves with ornaments, the most characteristic artistic demonstrations of their village or region. A must is also a folk craft trade that shows works and products made by skilled master craftsmen and folk art producers. You can taste also traditional local nibbles, including honey cakes and pretzels.
