Top Pick: Europa Luna Park in Bratislava

As spring arrives in Bratislava, outdoor activity can once again be enjoyed by all. Europa Luna Park, the glittery fun-fair set up outside Istropolis Cinema which is a fun place for kids (and adults, too), offers the perfect opportunity for enjoying the new spring evenings. The organisers of this travelling fair, which previously visited Nitra and Levice, hail from Holland and Germany. Since setting up operations in mid-March, they have had their hands full entertaining the excited crowds enjoying the atmosphere and rides on a nightly basis.
The ride called 'Move-it' has so far been a big attraction for its quick speeds and moments of leaving the rider hanging up-side-down. The large Ferris-wheel offers a somewhat calmer ride where visitors swing above the fair in small cabins while taking in the unique view of the city. 'Break-Dance' is another fan-favourite, where volunteers are tossed around and left feeling totally dizzy.
Bumper cars and carousels round out the ride selection, and delicious fried chicken is on sale as well. Contests promising prizes such as giant teddy bears and other toys, loud music and the ever-present neon-lighting of the grounds add to the festive atmosphere and illuminate the grey Dom Odborov building nearby.
