The Flora Bratislava 2008 international flower exhibition, taking place under the theme of ecology and healthy vegetation, opened its doors on May 7 at Bratislava's Incheba exhibition hall.

The four-day exhibition, now in its 29th year, has attracted 143 exhibitors who will offer cut flowers, potted vegetables, trees, and various garden features. Most of the exhibitors will also give advice.

Exhibitors from Slovakia, Italy, Hungary, Austria, the Czech Republic, Poland and France will occupy 7,100 square metres of the site's B-hall and 4,000 square metres outside. Two traditional competitions will take place: flower-arranging, and 'The Most Beautiful Exhibition' contest. The organizers expect as many as 50,000 visitors, who will also be able to attend expert lectures on flora. TASR
