Main BASE of the meeting will be Hostel Sv. Juraj, A. Pécha 2, Banská Štiavnica 969 01 alias name is also Scouting house (Skautský dom).

On Friday there will be Xmas market in miners museum in the building called Kammerhof on the main road, just 5 minutes from hostel. If you want to join us for interesting exhibition about history of mining please meet us there at 17.45 welcome and introduction meeting.

Please bring already the main ingriediences with you or buy it in Banska Stiavnica already on Friday evening when you arrive. BILLA supermarket in downtown will be open until 21.00. You don’t want to waste time shopping on Saturday in beautiful town like this, believe me. We would have tight schedule anyway. There would be time to buy small groceries in near by shops before breakfast or during lunch break.

Also if you want to give present to somebody who is important to you there will be space to do it during the potluck. Otherwise please preapre one small personal gift. We would draw the gifts during the dinner and someone lucky will get it from you.
