Bratislava has a new attraction for adrenaline seekers. The Skywalk is a walk on a narrow window board around the UFO restaurant on the SNP Bridge. Bratislava is the only city in Europe offering such an attraction apart from Tallin, Estonia. On a clear day, those courageous enough to take the Skywalk will be able to see as far as 100 kilometres and enjoy a 360-degree vista encompassing three neighbouring countries – Slovakia, Austria and Hungary.

One walk costs €39 and can be booked online at www.skywalk.redmonkeygroup.com. Right now, it's possible to walk in the sky on Friday morning.

Before taking the Skywalk, walkers will get special red overalls. They will be attached to a 1cm thick steel rope mounted to the outer side of the UFO restaurant with two safeguarding systems.

At three check-points, the walkers can try to lean over the edge of the board 82 metres above the ground or sit down on it. One walk will last approximately 15 minutes so that there is time to take pictures of the person doing it.

Participants cannot exceed 140 kg in weight and two metres in height.

The Skywalk is part of the Adrenaline Bratislava project. In addition, there will be a ropeway enabling people to get directly down from the UFO restaurant to the UFO beach. It will be put into operation in May.
