VENUE

The Conference will be held in Bratislava, Slovakia, at the congress centre Družba located about 3 km west from the historical centre of Bratislava and reachable by regular tram and bus connection in about 10 minutes from the city centre.

Bratislava, the capital and the largest city in Slovakia, is an old central European city that has always gained attention through its location on the river Danube, its nearness to Vienna and Budapest, and the hospitality of its inhabitants. Throughout the history, Bratislava has grown not only to the administrative, industrial, cultural and scientific centre of Slovakia but first of all to the lovely city worth of staying in. Today's visitors, sitting in restful cafés or walking through the streets and squares in immediate vicinity to the St. Martin gothic cathedral, the Town Hall, Primate's Palace, or other historical buildings, can fully enjoy and admire the ancient architecture of Bratislava's old city. The picturesque region around Bratislava, known for large vineyards and winemaking districts and for original ceramic manufacturing, impresses a visitor with hundreds of years of handicrafts, culture and traditions in this neighbourhood.
