April 23, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., premises of Bratislava Municipal Enterprise, Bazová 8
The fourth edition of the popular event Municipal Bazaar gives a second chance to objects that are useless for some, but could be useful for others.

We thus conserve natural resources and support sustainability and circular economy in Bratislava. The collected funds are deposited in a transparent account and will be used to create a stable Bratislava reuse centre.
