Traveling to Bratislava BY CARFans who drive to Bratislava for the World Championship can park in one of the auxilliary parking lots in the city. On the way from Trnava, we recommend using the parking lot at Zlaté piesky, from where tram connections to the arena will be frequent.
Another auxilliary parking lot on Technická street is also close, and from there shuttle buses will be provided. Another auxilliary parking lot will be on Tyršovo nábrežie, and a fourth option will be in Dúbravka, near ŠKP stadium. From both of these options trams are available to the arena. Public transportation is free for ticket holders on game day. There will also be frequent connections from the main station (Hlavná stanica) and from Bratislava Nové Mesto station to Ondrej Nepela Arena.
Fans coming from the Czech Republic should use the auxilliary parking lots in Dúbravka near ŠKP stadium and on Tyršovo nábrežie on the shore of the Danube river.
