The meeting will take place in the Hotel TATRA in Bratislava, Slovak Republic which is situated just in the center of Bratislava. The congress premises with different space capacities are equipped with state-of-the-art technology.

Further information on the congress center can be found on the hotel website:

There are several attractions and must-see places within walking distance from the hotel. Hodžovo square (Hodžovo námestie) is the closest square to the hotel (1-min walk) where the Grassalkovich Palace,  a residence of the President of Slovakia, can be found.

Another brief walk to the opposite side can take you to the The Freedom Square (Námestie slobody), where a newly renovated huge fountain can be found. From here, you can walk to the Old Town of Bratislava and just wander around the streets. Shortly you will notice a tower of the Michael’s Gate (Michalská brána) and find a compass underneath it, depicting the distance from the point where you are standing to several bigger cities. If you get deeper into the streets of the Old Town, you can also come across the Blue Church (Modrý kostolík).

In case you would like to see some art pieces, you can visit the recently renovated Slovak National Gallery which is situated near the Danube River. From there, if you walk along the riverside, you will see a UFO-like architecture above the Bridge of Freedom which functions as a restaurant.

From this point, if you do not mind climbing a few stairs, you can walk up to the Bratislava Castle which offers a walk-in tour, but also a nice garden with an impressive view on the city. In case you prefer less walking, you can take bus number 47 from “Hodžovo námestie” which will drop you off directly at the gate of the castle (the bus stop is called Castle -Hrad). From here you can either walk or catch again the bus number 47 and drop off at “Búdková” stop to walk up to Slavín – a memorial monument and military cemetery for the victims of WWII.
