Once a year Bratislava holds an impressive event which combines science, technology, and art. For several nights the city seems alive and busy with lots of people strolling around and exploring the old town decorated with lots of lights and illuminations. Don't miss an opportunity to see the famous UFO Tower which spreads green lasers and gives light to every corner of the city.

Earlier this Festival Svetla used to be held in September. Nowadays, the celebration of lights has been moved to March.

The best places to see the Festival of Light are the Old Town and the quay of the Danube in Petržalka.
