The Academy of Performing Arts in Bratislava invites everyone to their public art and music events, where the students of the music and dance faculty regularly perform.

A hike near Bratislava
Each Saturday foreigners living in Bratislava meet for a hike in the region. Every Friday they publish the locations on a Facebook group where the weekend adventure is going to take place.
Last weekend's starting point was from the borough of Záhorská Bystrica, where the hikers met at 9 a.m. followed by an approximately 2-hour walk to Stánisko, Malinský Vrch, and Malý Slavín. After having some rest at Malý Slavín, the hike continued down to U Slivu (cottage) and Spariská. The trip ended at Pekná Cesta, where Tram 3 at Krasňany can take you back to the city centre.
The total hike time (without rests) should take a bit more than 3 hours.
If you would like to go on the hike, here's a map.
