The capital city opened its annual city-wide event called Bratislava for All on April 19 and until Sunday, April 22, all city residents and visitors will have open doors to the city council, museums, libraries, galleries, the zoo, playgrounds and city parks.

Bratislava mayor Milan Ftáčnik told the TASR newswire he was trying to open every part of the city for those interested, without fees or limitations.

On April 19 a book sale and the exhibition of paintings by Stanislav Harangozó in Justi’s Hall of the Primatial Palace is being held. More exhibitions will be available to the public in Bratislava City Gallery (GMB) and the City Museum in the Old Town Hall.

During the weekend, children’s concerts will be offered in a bus parked at Hviezdoslavovo Square. The Old Town Hall will host a celebration of the granting of town rights to Bratislava and a special mass will be celebrated on April 22 at St. Martin’s Cathedral.

Ftáčnik told TASR he hoped for at least the same number of visitors as last year – more than 150,000.
