Prepare your sound systems, flags, decorations, bells, and above all a positive mood. Cycle through the streets of Bratislava, under improved conditions for people travelling by bicycle.

After the bike ride, there will be an afterparty with Rust2dust feat. Venison, hardcore as if sewn from the Bratislava underground.

An open-air exhibition of Korean photographs is currently taking place on Hviezdoslavovo Námestie in Bratislava, which will last until June 8.

There, you will see photos depicting the beautiful nature, traditions, culture, and development of the Republic of Korea.

Also, on the occasion of the anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between the Republic of Korea and the Slovak Republic, the friendship tram runs in Bratislava, which you can see every day on various routes.


Hike to Vápenná

An interesting tip for a Small Carpathian ascent could be the peak of Vápenná (752 m). If you like hiking, are physically fit, and have the right shoes/gear for walking, this is a lovely destination.

Vápenná is a hill in the central part of the western Small Carpathians, near the villages of Sološnica and Plavecké Podhradie.

You can start the route at Sološnica village, where you can go by bus from Bratislava Nivy bus station. The route itself will take less than 4 hours and is a bit less than 8 km.

If you would like to go on a hike, you can find the map for the route below.

PS: My colleague recommends a trip to Jelenia Hora hill in the Small Carpathians.
