Bratislava sees more tourists

MORE and more tourists are visiting Bratislava, the Hospodárske noviny daily reported. While in 2003 around 304,000 tourists came to the Slovak capital, that figure rose to 380,000 in 2004.

In addition, the January-April 2005 numbers suggest a 12 percent increase in tourists year-on-year. The rise can partly be attributed to the February 2005 Bush-Putin summit in Bratislava. The Slovak capital is now introducing new projects in order to attract even more visitors. One such idea, which is already in place, is a so-called "Citicard".

The cards, valid for from one to three days entitle holders to discount entry to cultural sites and institutions in the city.
