There are plenty of great ways to get active and engage in or watch sports in Bratislava. The mountains of the region make for beautiful hiking, biking, and walking trails and nearby skiing in the winter. Golf is a growing sport in the region as well. The Slovaks love watching sports and catching a hockey game will give you a real cultural experience with the city's people. There are many lakes in the area as well as public pools making swimming a popular option.
The people are very proud of their Slovak ice hockey teams and games are a blast. If you are visiting during the winter season be sure to check the HC Slovan team's website for a game calendar.
