Bratislava will receive a total of €15 million from the government. At the same time, it will not have to pay back the financial aid amounting to €10 million, which it received in 2014 and 2015.

PM Peter Pellegrini proposed to allocate €10 million in the state budget to finance Bratislava's activities.

“Bratislava will receive a proper budget contribution of €10 million for the first time next year, and I expect that every government to come will respect this rule,” he told the press conference, as quoted by the SITA newswire.

The cabinet also proposed to provide a subsidy of more than €3 million for the city boroughs. Eventually, the sum was increased to €5 million. As a result, the capital will receive €15 million in total.
