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.
