Tijana Janić concluded: “Everything was wrapped up in a fun and vibrant experience with nice people, wonderful food and wine. One of my highlights was the four-course dinner on the day of our arrival, organised in the Grand Hotel River Park located by the Danube river.”
“Bratislava is a metropolitan city but with the charm and comfort one experiences in a more intimate environment. It is perfect for events that could involve either a large or small number of participants since the locations are close by or within walking distance. A vibrant, cultural and historically rich city with friendly locals gives a perfect and memorable experience for any kind of event.”
