And don't forget to check the 10 things every Erasmus need to do first in Bratislava!
Bratislava is well known for party, and if you come looking for it, you have come to heaven, there are enough clubs here for you not to repeat one during the erasmus, so... that's a lot!
It's pretty common that you need to pay for going in, around 2-5€ and even 10 if you come after 23:00, I recommend to go before 23:00, get the entrance and go to you pre-party place until you are ready. Drinks can be from3 to 5 euro, but beer usually doesn't cost more than 3€ for half a litre, so it's a good option. As I said in the money management guide, if you have a flask, you can sneak it inside and have some drinks for free!
As I did in the Bratislava Cheap guide, I will talk about the club itself, not because of the music, because it changes every night, for example one night can be DnB and the next one Indie party, with totally different atmosphere.
There are many other clubs! They will be added soon.
Since you are going to spend a lot of time here, you will discover much more places than the average tourist. I warn you that maybe you don't find many of this spots interesting or... that you prefer them to the turistical ones! Some of them are unknown even for the locals!
Many places like the I Love Bratislava graffity are just 1 minute away from the tourist stream, but if you don't know the exact location, it can be months until you finally find them.
Of course, there are many other spots! Want to see your favourite corner here? Contact me and I will publish!
In this city, spectacles such as Opera or going to a classical music concert are much cheaper than western Europe, and the quality is surprisingly good, so you won't feel like going to the cheap version of Viena Orchesta but a really good one. Also, Slovaks are mad about Ice Hockey, and Bratislava has a very modern stadium called Slovan Arena.
If you want to go to the stadium, you can purchase your tickets in the stadium (reachable by tram 9) and bookstores in the centre, as well as throught their fully english website. Prices range from 14 to 20€ and all ISIC card holders have a 10% discount on each ticket! Season starts on September and finishes on February, so pay attention not to miss it!
Bratislava Shooting Club offers you a wide variety of activities! From shooting real bullets with real weapons (including AK47) to a safer way to shoot your friends: PaintBall and Airsoft! They have several facilities, one in the outskirts of the city and another about 15 min by car (they offer pickup). It's a nice option for an action-packed day! More information here.
More sections such as: Opera, Theatre, Philarmonica, and Horse races will be added soon!
