By Design Conference will be held in Bratislava, Slovakia. Visitors can enjoy the unique atmosphere of one of the oldest and most beautiful theaters in Bratislava and also the city which has so much to offer.

Arena Theatre

One of the oldest theaters in Bratislava has been praised by hosting actors from Hungary, Austria and Germany for ages. Situated on the south bank of the river Danube and surrounded by a charming park, Arena Theater is just a few moments away from the historical center of Bratislava. Be it for its beautiful historic look or super convenient location, we are very delighted to host our By Design conference at this exceptional venue.

Bratislava is ideally situated in the centre of Europe. The location in the "heart of Europe" makes Bratislava a very easily accessible city. Even other 3 capital cities are very close - Vienna (80 km), Budapest (200 km) and Prague (330 km). With fewer than half a million people, Bratislava ranks to Europe's most relaxed capitals, because everything is in close vicinity, reachable within few minutes walking distance.

The city itself has its old-town charm, sophisticated restaurants with international cuisine, traditional pubs, good music and local beer and wine. By strolling through Bratislava’s old streets, sitting on its picturesque promenades, walking along the Danube riverfront, one can feel the distinctive atmosphere of this exciting place. Being the largest Slovak city, it is not only the administrative and industrial, but also the cultural and scientific centre.
