And for the adrenalin seekers now you can catch Bratislava from a completely different perspective on the UFO Skywalk.

NOEMI KOLČAKOVA SZAKALLOVA
To speak of Slovak culture and art is to note a tapestry of traditions, customs, folklore, and on the same breath mention its staging under different regimes, and the European context overarching it. Long steeped in an agrarian life while being subjects under the Austro-Hungarian Empire, and then after WWII, as comrades within a Soviet satellite state, Slovaks sought to preserve not only their language but also all those distinctive markings of their culture. On the other hand, the modern art of Slovakia draws influence from both Slovak motifs and European art trends. They chart the course of painting, sculpture, and illustration, and the works of new contemporary artists, such as Noémi Kolčáková Szakállová is. Visiting one of her exhibitions when in Bratislava, is a perfect incentive idea for your congress guests. Her artwork will make you remember the undeniable power of women.
