“When coming to Bratislava, you don’t need to worry about safety, but rather, how you will spend your 72 hours in Bratislava”

This is the perfect time for cities to get creative and offer their visitors something fresh and unique. For quite some time, Bratislava has been known as a vibrant, vivid city and recently, it also gained the title of one of the safest in terms of COVID-19. Most of the city’s hotels have opened their doors again, taking care of all the safety and health measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19. When coming to Bratislava, you don’t need to worry about safety, but rather, how you will spend your 72 hours in Bratislava.


The Bratislava Tourism Board has just launched a new campaign with a 2 + 1 summer offer, supported by several city hotels. Visitors can pay for 2 nights and get the third night complimentary.

The “72 hours Bratislava” application includes several options depending on your interests. From culture, art, history, nightlife and food to nature and sport, it allows you to plan your tailor-made itinerary in just a few clicks. What makes it especially attractive are the local guides who will make your experience even more authentic. At the end you just need to choose one of the hotels: Loft Hotel, Park Inn By Radisson Danube, Hotel NH Gate One, Hotel Bratislava, DoubleTree By Hilton, Hotel Matyšak, Radisson Blu Carlton, Falkensteiner Hotel and book with a special promotion code. Using the 2 + 1 promotion code, you will receive a 72-hour Bratislava Card, City & Region for the price of 48 hours. The offer 2 + 1 for free is valid by 13 September.

Our favourite 72-hours plan

A mix of art, food, wine and “live like a local” theme

We started off DAY 1 at the Old Market House – or Stará tržnica, now transformed into a special venue for events. We continued to two important historical buildings, the Opera House and Primate’s Palace. At Pinot at Bruno’s, we learned about Slovak wine before moving to the San Marten Bar & Restaurant. It is one of Bratislava’s most iconic venues to dine at or just hang out and enjoy fine wine or music. Our last stop was at Café Studio, a place with rich music history and good coffee!

DAY 2 brought us some more history and art by visiting St. Martin’s Cathedral and Palffy Palace. To satisfy our gourmet curiosity, we stopped at Modra Zvezda Restaurant, Dunajsky Pivovar restaurant and Štur Cafe. The surprise of the day was Sunny Lakes at Senec, the perfect refreshment on a hot summer day.

On DAY 3, we first stopped at a unique Passage project by Matej Kren, an infinite space made of books and continued to some galleries suggested by the application. We admired Bratislava City Gallery’s collection and the one at Danubiana Meulensteen Art Museum. We finished off the day at a small local brewery called Bratislava Burgess Brewery, where they produce beer using state-of-the-art technology.

Ideas for meetings & incentive planners

Although the 72-hour city Bratislava campaign is meant for summer months, we urge meeting planners to check out all the special venues and get plenty of ideas for the next incentive programme.
