The Nivy complex alongside the bus station on Mlynské Nivy Street in Bratislava recently opened doors to the public. The brand new terminal, shops, the gastro zone and the green roof have contributed to Bratislava’s image as a modernistic city. Furthermore, the capital of Slovakia will now become even more accessible.

The new bus station in the capital offers 36 platforms, seven exit platforms, and 86 spots for buses with barrier-free access. The new Nivy complex also features nine LCD TV panels, a large LED wall with information about departures and arrivals similar to those found at airports and several self-service touch screens. The Nivy compound project is a combination of an international bus terminal, a shopping centre, a market and a high-rise administrative building. The green roof includes a running track, exercise and picnic zones, a community garden and children’s playgrounds.

A supra-regional shopping centre AND A bus station of international significance

With this latest sustainable addition to Bratislava, the city hopes to attract more congress attendees who perpetually choose sustainable options of transport. The habits of event attendees have changed, which is why Bratislava is quickly adapting to become a safe haven for a new era of events, where ecologically aware participants will dominate. In the same breath, meeting planners can now opt for sustainable transport when arriving at the destination.

René Popik, CEO of HB Reavis Slovak branch, talked about the challenges faced during COVID-19: “Yes, there is still a crisis ongoing, but we were able to capitalise on it. The added time really played into our hands because we could continue to adapt the centre to better respond to new challenges as brought about by the coronavirus.” (Source: Across Magazine)

Easily accessible

The station is accessible for both public and private transport and has an underground parking area with 2,150 parking spaces. Developer HB Reavis assured that comfortable access is also provided for cyclists and pedestrians.

The supra-regional shopping centre, the bus station of international significance and the modern urban marketplace have thus made Bratislava one of the most easily accessible destinations in Europe.
