Great interest in seeing Bush speak

DEMAND for tickets to attend President Bush's address to the Slovak people in Hviezdoslavovo square has been great.

The Bratislava Municipal Office gave away 100 tickets in less than half an hour, the TASR news agency reported.

The queue for the tickets started forming before 8 o'clock at the "Service for Citizen" office.

The 100 tickets were handed out but the office distributed another 150 before noon.

"We were sorry that we informed people there were no more tickets but we did not know we were going to get any more," Emília Slaná from the "Service for Citizen", told TASR.

However, she said it would be possible to see the event, starting at 9.30, even without tickets.

Admission into Hviezdoslavovo square will only be possible from the New Bridge (Nový most) end.
