Accommodation

Each participant takes care of their own accommodation. Bratislava offers numerous options as for hotels, hostels, Airbnb flats etc. (Hostels cost approximately 10-15 EUR per person in dorms, double rooms on Airbnb are about 20-30 EUR per night). The idea of the Polyglot Gathering is to enable the community to spend as much time together as possible and that’s why we support group bookings. If you’d like to stay with other fellow polyglots and don’t know anyone yet, watch this website and the Facebook event later on and we’ll help you get organized so you can stay where other participants are staying.

If you are interested in one of the proposed hotels, please indicate it in the registration form or write to zuzana.dohnalova@polyglotbratislava.com.

Food

There is a possibility of having lunches at the Gathering venue together with other participants. When registering for the Gathering, you can choose whether you would like to order them or not. You can of course use the lunch breaks to go out and eat at places of your choice. However, please bear in mind that there are not many restaurants close to the university, and you will most probably need to use public transportation to get to them.

Also, the common meals are a great possibility to hang out with fellow polyglots outside of the lectures and get to know new people. The canteen is a very cozy place to get together and use the Gathering to its fullest potential.

Restaurants closeby:

  • Tarpan (5 minutes on foot)
  • Eurovea shopping center: Food court (bus 88 to Landererova / 90 to Nové SND)
  • Albero (20 minutes on foot)
