The event takes place around the date of April 24, which is Juraj nameday. (April 18 - 21 in 2013). On that day, mayor of the town was traditionally elected in Bratislava, based on a charter of the King Andrew III on granting municipal privileges in the course of a relatively long historical period.
Over the weekend of April 21 - 23, 2017, entrances to the most of municipal museums, galleries, and typical city services are free of charge to all visitors. Tourists should be aware that majority of sites used to be overcrowded on such days.
