Citizens and visitors of Bratislava can enjoy the winter mood at two skating rinks in the Old Town of Bratislava. The Christmas city skating rink was ceremonially opened in Primaciálne square on December 6 while the second one in Hviezdoslavovo square has already been open since November 23.

The skating rink in Primaciálne square, operated by Bratislava city council, is open daily between 10:00 and 22:00 until January 6. Entrance is free and skate hire (€4 per 1.5 hour) and refreshments are among the services on offer.

In Hviezdoslavovo square the rink is open daily from 10:00 until 22:00. Its operation is planned to last until the end of the main Christmas holidays, i.e. until 6 January, but if the weather is favourable, i.e. it is cold enough, its operator, the Old Town, might extend its availability further into the winter.

Skating at the Old Town’s rink is free, too. Skate rental is available there as well for €4 and there are also special penguin skating aides to help little ones stay on their feet.
