Conference venue

The conference will take place in the main building of the Faculty of Arts of the Comenius University at Gondova 2 which is located by the banks of the Danube, across the street from the main University building located at the Šafárikovo námestie.

Getting to

Bratislava is served by the Bratislava airport (BTS) with direct lines to London, Berlin, Rome, Paris, Moscow and Dubai.

The Vienna International Airport (VIE) (aka Schwechat), which has direct lines to just about anywhere in the world, is only some 45-60 minutes away from Bratislava city center (option 1, option 2).

While the Budapest airport is also nominally close by, it is a pain to get from there to Bratislava, so this option is best avoided. Instead, if you wish to make a trip of it, flying to and from Prague (PRG) is a great idea: Prague is only 4 hours away by train or bus from Bratislava and absolutely lovely in early June - or any time of year, really.


The conference venue is located in the city center where a large number of hotels B&Bs and hostels is located; please see or for some of the options.

Additionally, the University offers accomodation at the Hotel Družba which is a short tram ride or a medium and scenic walk away from the conference venue. Feel free to make arrangements with the management directly or contact the conference organizers at contact[at] for the possibility of reduced group rates.

Getting around

The conference venue is a 10-15 minute walk away from the city center and a 5-minute walk from the Eurovea shopping mall and promenade. Both are served by trams no. 4 and 6 which stop at the main University building (the Šafárikovo námestie stop). In the opposite direction (which will take you from the University to the Hotel Družba), the same lines are served by the SND stop a few blocks away.

Conference dinner

The conference dinner will take place at the Leberfinger restaurant on the southern bank of the Danube.
