Practical Information

About Trnava

Trnava is the capital of Trnava region, about 50 kilometres from Bratislava, the capital city of Slovakia. Trnava is known as a students' town with seats of three universities. Another important aspect of Trnava is its rich history and culture, and its presence of many churches and a cathedral gave it the nickname "Little Rome". In the Trnava region, many wineries and restaurants with local cuisine can be found. In addition, there are many opportunities for sports and recreation.

Venue

The conference will be held in the Faculty of Arts, Trnava University in Trnava and Aula Pázmaneum, Horpotočná 23, Trnava.

Both buildings are located in the city centre. They are within walking distance of many hotels and accommodation options in Trnava.

Accommodation

Tourism in Slovakia has grown immensely, and moderately-priced lodging quickly fills up. We encourage conference participants to book accommodation early to avoid high prices and limited availability. Websites such as Booking.com and Airbnb.com will provide information about various accommodation possibilities.

Another alternative is staying in nearby cities with good connections by public transport.

For instance, Bratislava is the capital of Slovakia and has a wide range of cultural and tourist opportunities. Alternatively, we can recommend a stay in Piešťany, a nearby spa town.

Travel by air

Arriving in Bratislava:

Bratislava Airport (BTS), Slovakia's main airport, is 52 kilometres from Trnava, the conference city. To arrive in Trnava, follow the signs to the bus stop and take city bus 61 to the central train station in Bratislava. Then change for a train to Trnava. Depending on the type of train, the transport can be as short as 30 minutes, and the ticket is around 3€. Trains to Trnava are frequent, and the stop is called "Trnava".

Arriving in Vienna:

Another alternative for travel is Vienna Airport, 116 km from Trnava. The airport provides a higher number of flights with a wider range of prices—buses connecting Slovakia and the airport run at regular intervals. Follow the signs at the airport to bus stops.

Some buses go directly to Trnava, but you may need to change buses at the Bratislava bus station.

Depending on the operator, bus and train tickets can be bought online, but you can buy them also on the bus or at the train station. The official currency in Slovakia is the Euro.

Moving around Trnava

The conference venue is within walking distance from the bus and train station (19 minutes) and most hotels. The only public transportation in Trnava is the bus system.

The average price for one ride within the town is 3.50€.
