“I have been on the London Eye but this is a completely different experience; I’m a native Bratislavan and no other place offers a view of the city centre from such a perspective,” said Martina Horváthová after a ride on the Bratislava Zhora (Bratislava from Above) wheel. While the London Eye takes visitors to a height of 135 metres, Bratislava’s new attraction rises to 30 metres.
The observation wheel sprung up on the Danube bank in the historical centre close to the Slovak National Gallery and the Reduta concert hall as support for local tourism hit by the coronavirus pandemic. The wheel is only temporary and will remain on the site until the end of September.
