Bratislava, Slovakia, European Union
Bratislava is capital city of Slovakia located in Central Europe.
City is well connected with neighboring capitals and international airports by international highways.
Bratislava is situated directly on country boarders with Czech Republic, Austria and Hungary. Bratislava is well connected to neighboring capitals by international multilane highways. Within Slovakia, the D1 motorway connects Bratislava to the east of the country (direction Košice, Krakow), the D2 motorway connects Bratislava with Hungary to the south and the Czech Republic to the north and D4 motorway connects Bratislava with Vienna.
If you want to fly to Bratislava, you can choose between the city’s own international airport and Schwechat airport in Vienna, which is about 45 km from Bratislava and connected by regular shuttle buses. Regular flights link these airports with many major European destinations.
Vienna international airport (VIE)
Bratislava airport (BTS)
International trains to Bratislava’s main railway station run from Vienna (1 hour), Budapest (3 hours), and Prague (4-5 hours) several times a day. There are less frequent direct connections to Berlin, Bucharest, Kiev, Moscow and Warsaw.
The main railway station is a short distance from the centre and there is a good connection to city public transport; alternatively, walking to the centre takes 15-20 minutes. Trains from Vienna also arrive at Bratislava–Petržalka Station, which is to the south of the city centre across the Danube River and has direct bus connection with Čunovo (Public transport, Bus 91).
Perhaps the nicest way to arrive in Bratislava is by riverboat, via the Danube. The Rhine–Main–Danube Canal links Bratislava with the North Sea; the Danube River connects it to the Black Sea.
Cruises along the Danube have been a big hit with tourists for many years. River cruises go to and from Budapest, and a scheduled passenger service, the Twin City Liner, connects Bratislava and Vienna by high-speed catamaran several times a day during summer.

About the Canoe Slalom Slovak Open 2019
Canoe Slalom Paddlers will compete again at Canoe Slalom Slovak Open after 10 years
“There is no other way to commercialize for Canoe Slalom other than a massive extension of the possibility of presenting our wonderful Olympic sport to more than five rounds of World Cup, World Championships and Continental Championship,” says Richard Galovič, vice president of the Slovak Canoeing – Whitewater Section, about the creation of the ECA Open Canoe Slalom Cup.
Ten years ago, the Canoe Slalom World Series, which was born in the head of the current leader of Slovak Canoeing – Whitewater Section, enjoyed great popularity in the Canoe Slalom community. “It was also more motivating for competitors to show their virtuosity to people when they could compete. The more the better. That was why we tried to create a commercial project that was supposed to push us sport dynamically forward. The races were organized at a high level and there was a great sports, spectator and sponsor interest already after the first year, which enabled the athletes to offer financial rewards for their performance ten years ago. That is why I am very pleased that today the European Canoeing Association has returned to the idea of promoting the commercialization of our sport with our full support. The Canoe Slalom Slovak Open will be re-opened in Bratislava-Čunovo on 9-11. August 2019 as the culmination of the European part of the ICF World Ranking,” continued Galovic.
The race format is defined by the ICF World Ranking rules – Qualification, Semifinals and Finals – with points only being collected in the Olympic events – K1M, K1Ž, C1M and C1Ž.
For each country we have prepared an attractive race of mixed teams Nation Cup (4-Cat), where will start all four boats of the Olympic program K1 men, C1 men, K1 women, C1 women.
The three-day event will also allow young athletes to compete, so we are looking forward to including the final event of the ECA Junior Canoe Slalom Cup 2019.
