- Performing Arts
International popular music acts regularly play Bratislava, using a range of venues: the Incheba conference centre on the south side of the Danube is a favourite for larger concerts. Leonard Cohen, Pussycat Dolls, Alice Cooper and Diana Krall were among those who performed here during 2009.
- Sports & Recreation Activities
If you want to play sport there are, as you would expect, several recreation centres and swimming pools in the city. This site (in Slovak, but with an easy-to-navigate map with symbols) is a good place to find one, and check prices and opening hours.
There is also horse-riding, rafting and a network of paths suitable for running and cycling in and around the city. The best are along the Danube River and in the forested hills above the city.
If you want to watch, football and ice hockey are the main winter sports. Bratislava will co-host the 2011 Men's Ice Hockey World Championships (with Košice, in eastern Slovakia) and the main stadium is currently being rebuilt. Tennis is popular in the summer. There is a horse-racing track in the Petržalka district.
- Spas & Relax
Spa tourism has long been a mainstay of the Slovak tourism industry. A combination of geothermal sources and fine-quality mineral water means that the country has several spa towns. The most prestigious, Piešťany, is about an hour north of Bratislava. More recently, aquaparks with slides, hotpools and wave machines have grown up not far from the capital. The closest aquaparks are in Senec, Veľký Meder and Galanta.
- Dining & Nightlife
Bratislava's city centre has sometimes been referred to as “one huge restaurant”. This is more or less true: you can find a restaurant, café, bar or pub on just about every corner. There are hundreds in the old-town pedestrian zone alone. The people of Bratislava enjoy spending time socialising in them, and we await with anticipation the appearance of outdoor seating in May each year, which allows us (and visitors) to sit in the sunshine, sipping wines from local vineyards and admiring the beauty of the women of Bratislava as they pass by.
