The ceremonial opening programme culminated in a fireworks display.



“My dream has come true – finally, the ‘city by the Danube’ is becoming the city on the Danube,” said Andrej Ďurkovský, mayor of Bratislava to TASR, noting that it is only a short walk between the city centre and the new district. “The investor accepted our proposals and a new district came into being, one in which people can buy things, be entertained and relax as well,” he added.

The 5-star Sheraton Hotel Bratislava was opened in February and the Eurovea Galleria shopping zone in March. The riverfront complex, which is designed to be a relaxation-leisure zone, occupies an area of two hectares, and the new square is regarded by experts as one of the largest new squares in Europe.

“We believe that the park along with the square will become a favourite site for relaxation and entertainment for residents of Bratislava and visitors,” said Mike de Mug, retail director for Ballymore Group.
