A MULTIFUNCTIONAL entertainment and recreation project worth €1.5 billion will be built on the outskirts of Bratislava in Jarovce – near both the Hungarian and Austrian borders – by the international development company TriGranit, the TASR newswire reported.

The ‘Metropolis’ complex will be co-financed by Harrah’s Entertainment Inc. and will consist of a commercial area, an aqua park, conference facilities, hotels and sports arenas as well as casinos spread out over 1.2 million square metres.

“Even in the first phase of the project (2010-2015) we reckon on creating 30,000 jobs, both long-term as well as temporary, and strengthening the service sector in the Slovak economy,” said TriGranit board chairman Gábor Zászlós, as quoted by TASR.

He added that Metropolis will not be supported by the Slovak government in any way and will not have any direct impact on Slovakia's state budget.
