#brnenskevanoce Dominikánské náměstí (Dominican Square)
Dominikánské náměstí is a pedestrian zone with a romantic backdrop of the New Town Hall and Saint Michael’s church.
During the Advent markets, it turns into a place for excellent food and drinks as well as Christmas traditions with the Nativity scene, Christmas farm, and Christmas wish lists sent to Baby Jesus.
Not only can you buy good food and drinks here but – unlike at other places in the city centre – you can enjoy it here in peace. During and after Advent, this is where you’ll find booths by well-known and successful restaurants and bistros from Brno and its surroundings. The area around the booths is complemented by comfortable areas to enjoy the refreshments; these zones will remain there over and after Christmas for you to refresh yourselves in the open air, without the stress that is typical for the pre-Christmas period.
Master carver Jiří Halouzka sent his Nativity scene with a hundred characters to Brno. In addition to a lot of animals, there’s the usual cast – baby Jesus, Mary and Joseph.
At the Nativity scene there will be wooden as well as live animals for the little ones to enjoy. The Brno ZOO will bring friendly sheep and pygmy goats for everyone to pet.
Christmas wish lists
Are your children dreaming of some presents? Let them send a wish list to Baby Jesus! Like every year, they can put their wish list into the wooden mailbox at Dominikánské náměstí.
On weekend afternoons in December, children are welcome to attend Christmas workshops at the square by the mailbox and create decorations for the Christmas tree and windows. And perhaps artist Vendula Chalánková will come as well!
Attention! The booths selling refreshments will remain open on Christmas Day. And the following days as well. And in the first days of next year, too! Until January 5.
