Bratislava inhabitants love to ice skate in the open air and this winter it’s coming to several localities in the town where they can do this sport either for free or a fee.

Ice rinks are traditionally located at Primaciálne Square and Hviezdoslavovo Square but it is possible to ice skate near shopping centres. There is also an ice rink in the Vajnory borough.

For those who need to rent skates or helmets, this service is available usually near every ice rink, offering also penguin- or whale-shaped stability aids for children. Moreover, for a smaller fee it is possible to sharpen the skates or use the checkroom.

Ice skating in the Old Town

There are several open-air ice-skating options in the historical centre free of charge. The ice rinks are traditionally located at Primaciálne Square (550 sq

metres) and Hviezdoslavovo Square (480 sq metres).

The ice skating at both rinks is free and visitors may rent skates – €4 for 90 minutes. Moreover, at Hviezdoslavovo Square it is possible to sharpen skates or rent helmets, informed Nora Gubková, spokesperson of the Old Town.

The rental service can be used as a storage. Ice-skaters may leave items there for a 50-cent fee.
