Slovakia and Bratislava have a new building. It is the tallest the country has seen in 17 years.

Nivy Tower measures 125 metres in height, surpassing the National Bank of Slovakia which is 111 metres high, the SITA newswire reported.

There is a small tree at the top of Nivy Tower that signals that the building work has reached the top.

The construction of Nivy Tower started in 2017 and is a part of the construction of the new Nivy bus station. The building has 29 office spaces and two technical floors, totalling 30,000 square metres of office space.

A restaurant and terrace with a panoramic view should be located at the highest accessible floor of the building. The developer HB Reavis plans to open the station in 2020.
