Lakes

Bratislavans can swim in lakes, like Draždiak in Petržalka. A water rescue service will be operating from June 27 to the end of August.

Kuchajda in Nové Mesto is preparing for the season. Whether it will be open to the public will be clear after a water analysis, said Rudolf Kusý, mayor of the borough.

Popular places for Bratislavans to bathe are Rusovské Lake or Small Lake near Čunovo.
