The last parts of Eurovea, the new shopping and entertainment district on the north bank of the Danube River in Bratislava, will be officially opened on Saturday, April 24, the TASR newswire wrote.
Following the opening of the 5-star Sheraton Hotel Bratislava in February and the Eurovea Galleria shopping centre in March, the public square and riverbank promenade will be turned over to Bratislava city for public use this weekend.
The riverfront park occupies an area of two hectares. The new square is regarded by experts as one of the largest new squares in Europe. Eurovea's opening ceremony will take place between 11:00 and 22:00 and will feature entertainment by dozens of dancers, musicians, artists and theatre troupes. At the end of the festivities there will be a fireworks display.
