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.
