Petržalka, the largest of the 17 boroughs of Bratislava, is launching its pilot parking project that will give preference to local residents as of November 1. Under this new scheme, Petržalka residents will be able to park in this borough free of charge, 24 hours, seven days per week. People without permanent residence will be able to park at marked parking places during the day, i.e. between 8:00 and 18:00, and during weekends, free of charge. Overnight, they will have to pay €1 per hour for parking at these places, or they will have to park elsewhere. This means that parking overnight may cost as much as €14.
