Bratislava is a true center of arts. From opera and the symphony to the ballet the classics are no problem here. Art performances are everywhere, there are festivals throughout the year in their honor, street performances and live music at the local eateries. The best part may be how affordable tickets are to the ballet and opera making it a easy option several times during your stay if possible.

One of the best places for visitors to check out is the Slovak National Theatre. This beautiful historical building of the theatre is the perfect place to catch an opera showing. It was built in the Hapsburg era and is truly an elegant theater that makes for a romantic night out.

Since Slovak National Theatre has several buildings, including the new building at Pribinova St. (near Eurovea), don't forget to make sure where your chosen performance is taking place.

The Slovak Philharmonic encompasses several musical orchestra groups ensuring plenty of concerts at their Reduta theater.

The Bratislava Music Festival series is a superb addition to the city's performing arts. This musical celebration highlights the best of the best from Beethoven to classic and new jazz. Different philharmonic groups travel from all over the world to perform at these series. Another great aspect about this time of year is the celebration of the wine season. The series begins in September and runs through October.
