One of the smaller and very likeable European capitals is compact and you can explore its beautiful parts by foot. The old town is closed for traffic. Administrative and economic centre of Slovakia is currently a fast growing Slovakia’s congress brand. Bratislava is a modern city with a developed congress infrastructure with key international hotel chains such as Sheraton, The Luxury Collection by Starwood, Crowne Plaza, Radisson Blu, Austria trend hotel and Falkensteiner. The offer is surprisingly rich and very colourful and includes a number of interesting special venues. We are all impressed with Slavic spirit influenced by Germanic organization. As the new centre of European automotive industry, as it is considered for European Detroit, pins great hopes on the presentation of new cars as one of the specializations. All this is packed into affordable yet very effective and attractive package.

COMPARISION WITH THE REGION
Bratislava is an undiscovered European congress capital which is slowly and steadily penetrating into the congress market. It represents a novelty for the international congress market which impresses due to the kindness and sympathetic outlook of the city centre, but also because of the not excessive commercialization. Bratislava has long lived in the shadow of neighbouring Vienna and Prague but today, fresh and full of new energy invites international congress organizers. It is close to them mainly due to a more personal congress experience – the city is very friendly for the congress organizers and participants.
Bryndzové Halušky – Halušky, is one of the most popular national dishes of Slovakia. This hearty meal is made of potato dough noodles or dumplings (halušky) with sheep cheese (bryndza) cooked bacon sprinkled on top, and some versions have sausage. Easily speaking, halušky is similar as Italian gnocchi.
