Tickets for the 2011 World Championships in Slovakia go on sale at 11:00am on September 27th. Tickets for the prelim and qualification rounds are in two price categories, Bratislava - 40€ and 55€, Kosice 30€ and 55€. The playoff round is in Bratislava with tickets 83€ and 100 € for the QF, 112€ and 150€ for the SF, 90€ and 120€ for the bronze medal game, and 188€ and 250€ for the gold medal game. The relegation round will be played in both Bratislava and Kosice with prices also in two categories, Bratislava - 14€ and 19€, Kosice 10€ and 19€.

I think that is considerably more expensive than I thought. In particular the medal round games make it difficult for someone to take their family, etc.

Though, for 201€ you can see 6 WHC games, including all Slovakia´s games, still cheaper than seeing Mšk Žilina- Chelsea

So if I were to head down to Slovakia for this, what else of interest is there to do in Bratislava and Košice, apart from hockey?
Any points of interest to visit? Any local beers or foods to try? And how is the level of English among the locals?

Sorry to bring up an old argument, but I noticed that comment and just had to google it to find out what it was.



Jesus Christ!

Looks like something you'd find in Sub-Saharan Africa, not in Central Europe.

Well you are opening up a very large can of worms. After expulsion of Roma by France this week it is very clear that western Europe is just as clueless when it comes to how to solve these problems. Wouldn't it be easier if we all took the example by France and totally ignored human rights?

Anyhow this political discussion doesn't belong in a hockey forum, and it would please me if you discussed hockey and not this stuff.

Never said anything about the Roma.
All I see are some really, really run down buildings.

No social or political criticism intended, if it was how you interpreted it. No offence intended.

Bought an event pass today.

I never expected these would be sold out so soon, so it's a good thing I didn't wait. Can't miss this historic moment for Slovakia.

finally able to get tickets

For some reason, the playoff package tickets purchase system has been restricted last week. I was finally able to get the bratislava playoff package, but they were the last ones to go on sale. Anyone else have these problems?

Speaking of old arguments, it's lovely that A4 will play all relegation games in BA, denying KE any chance at having Slovak NT play here even if they got relegated

Soooooooooo,

anybody from Bratislava reading these pages who can recommend a decent hotel, bed and breakfast or apartement for the world cup? I'm planning to visit with 5 or 6 friends. Nothing too fancy, we'll be at the arena or in the pub or city most of the time anyway. Or anybody here who's got tips for sightseeing, possibly attractions a bit away from the beaten path? Much appreciated...

Central Europe You have to go a few hundred kilometers east from Bratislava to be in Eastern Europe.

Actually, I knew they don´t. Ever since a few young Germans once told me they thought we were still riding carregies with horses over here.

Btw icetigers80, just noticed your location- banana republic- you´re gonna feel like at home then.

Okay, considering the territory of Europe reaching as far as the Ural, Slovakia is technically Central Europe, but I grew up with the Eastern Bloc and Germany still separated, so your country has that "eastern ring" to me. Actually I've been to Bratislava a couple of times, but never downtown . A buddy of mine runs a courier service, and I helped him out once in a while by delivering spare parts to the Volkswagen plant on the outskirts of the city.
And yes, Banana Republics wherever you go nowadays. Things and circumstances get ****ed up more and more day by day

check out the wiki page. I made the maps, uploaded the most of the images and did most of the coding. I always love making these.

I have to say I am pleasantly surprised. After the fiascoes of the arena, the (first) mascot, the "anthems", this seems to be the first thing they have actually done well. I really like the design. It is original, the medals seem heavy and durable (which is what I would expect from a medal) and they are stylish. The hockey sticks are especially nice and they actually make the medal look like an "S" shape. "S" for Slovakia as I heard in the news.

A real nice video about the "Lucky puck" from Bratislava here. You can also find videos form other towns there, but I thought this one was pretty special as it included the finalists of the U10 tournament Orange Minihokej Tour playing the final in the Samsung Arena.....
