Bratislava’s vintage picnic
Our grandmother’s blankets, picnic baskets, coffee thermos, badminton and clay balls. Many of us have long forgotten the nostalgia of the past when we still had time for everything. The organizers of the second Bratislava Old School Picnic, which celebrates the way of life of the first half of the 20th century, continue with the tradition in the oldest public park in the Central Europe, Janko Kráľ Orchard.
Janko Kráľ Orchard will transport its visitors 100 years in the past to the period of the First Czechoslovak Republic. The program is very rich – authentic music groups, fashion shows, dance workshops, a stylish men’s barber, a women’s salon, a photobooth, an exhibition of hand-made vintage motobycicles Furka Motors or a popular “Escape Room”: The Secret of the Wine Cellar.
The program will continue with a lecture organized by the civic association Bratislavské rožky about the famous people visiting Bratislava during the inter-war period.
The cherry on the pie is a romantic dance under the stars under the baton of the swing orchestra Fats Jazz Band.
Grab your grandmother’s blanket, picnic baskets, search the house for badminton rackets, leave your mobile phone at home and enjoy a day like our grandparents used to. If you also have a matching piece of clothing, do not hesitate and dress up!
A very important part of the picnic is information about the history of Bratislava and a voluntary donation for the renovation of a historical monument in Bratislava.
