As a smart city Bratislava has been defeated by all the other capitals in the Visegrad Group (V4) region. This stems from the IESE Cities in 2017 Motion Index, compiled by the Business School of the University of Navarra.

The Slovak capital placed 77th in the ranking that measured the sustainability and quality of life in 180 major cities around the globe.

Bratislava has already launched several pilot projects for smart technologies in public spaces. Its inhabitants could, for example, test solar benches that charge mobile phones or offer Wi-Fi connection, the public-service broadcaster RTVS reported.

The best of the other central European cities was Vienna, which ranked 15th, while the worst was Kiev, which occupied the 119th position, RTVS informed.
