This page includes recommendations for participant regarding the logistics of the ADF.
These primarily regard the advice about the location of the event venues as well as recommendations for accommodation in Bratislava.
There is no conference registration fee.
In general, Ambrela does not cover the travel and accommodation expenses of participants. In some exceptional cases a very limited funds can be used for this purpose – contact organizers directly.
The working language of the conference is English. No translation to other languages will be provided.
For international travellers from neighbouring countries the TRAIN could be a suitable solution. Bratislava is on the main international railway with a simple connection to Prague, Budapest and Vienna. The main train station – Bratislava, Hlavná stanica – is close to the centre of the city.
Bus No. 93 connects the station with both conference venues and hotels listed below in this section.
Tram No. 1 connects the station with downtown Bratislava.
For those who need to FLY IN, Vienna International Airport (VIE) in Schwechat may be a preferable destination. The airport is located between Vienna and Bratislava on the highway. Various bus services (SlovakLines, FlixBus, RegioJet) run every hour to connect the airport with downtown Bratislava. The journey takes approximately 50 minutes and should not cost more than 12 EUR if you purchase a ticket on board, notably less if you buy in advance and through the service provider application.
For those who do not mind walking, get off the bus at the stop Most SNP and walk to the hotel:
Civil Society Forum (23 May 2022)
Venue: Lecture Room – University Library Bratislava
(entrance from Ventúrska str. 11)
The venue is very close to the hotel Ibis:
Policy & Advocacy Forum (24 May 2022)
Venue: Conference Centre of the Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs, Hlboká cesta 2, Bratislava
Note: The Ministry is in a walking distance from the main train station, Bratislava, Hlavná stanica.
In order to get to the Ministry from Ibis Hotel, you will need to take bus 93 – two stops from Zochova to Pod stanicou. Then cross the road using the passenger bridge and enter the campus of the Ministry on the right:

There are numerous opportunities to get accommodation in Bratislava. We have selected a number of hotels – in a varying price range – which are either in the walking distance from the ADF venues or conveniently located along the bus line 93, which connects Bratislava’s main train station with Petržalka station.
