This page (bratislava-slovakia.eu/travel/vienna-bratislava/boat) is consuming 100% of CPU on my eight-core laptop when I visit it in Chrome or in Edge. That is a huge problem that needs immediate attention. Contact me for details.

Hi Ron norman,

it should be between the SNP bridge and the Old bridge, on the left side (closer to the city center).

Best wishes,

Samuel

Hi ,

is you card ISIC? If so it will surely do work. If it's not, it should be fine as well, but it's not 100%. Last time we used a Mexican student card for Devin castle entry, but maybe some companies have more strict policy about this.

However, give it a try and have a nice day,

Samuel

Hi! I was wondering if any student card (I mean, if it doesn't matter which country is the card from) would be enough to make the discount... I am European student and I would be very interested to know it.

Thanks in advance!

Hi Iria,

your best choise would be ISIC card. Other type of documentation will or won´t be accepted. And all discount are for students from EU so you should be safe :).
