How to find us:

You can find us on the Vienna road, almost near the border with Austria. The best way of transport is by a vehicle or by a bicycle on bike path.

Traveling by a vehicle: If you travel by a vehicle, you will be driving along the Vienna road and coming towards the state border. On the right side you will see a large parking lot for vehicles with our board. Park your vehicle here and directional signs will steer you further. From the parking lot you will be walking away about 5 minutes. Just follow the cycle path and boards. You can study the map at the end of this section for a better orientation.

Traveling by a bicycle: If you go by bike from ,,Petržalka“, the route is the same as with the vehicle (see paragraph above). If you’re going to visit us from the center of Bratislava, it is ideal for you to pass Lafranconi SNP Bridge by bicycle and continue along the signed paths to our area.
