Public Holidays

Christmas in the city
Slovakia enjoys fifteen public holidays each year, on the dates below. Note that, with the exception of the Easter holidays (Good Friday and Easter Monday), each holiday is observed on whatever day of the week it falls, even if that is a Saturday or Sunday. On public holidays all state offices and schools, and many shops, are closed or work reduced hours. However, the larger shopping centres usually tend to stay open.
