After 13 years of operation, Eurovea will become the largest shopping centre in Slovakia as its extension is set to open on May 25th. The centre reports an occupancy rate of 95% and promises to bring new brands and innovative concepts. The developer J&T Real Estate is now completing work on most of the buildings in the second phase of the Eurovea project.

Slovakia's newest and largest shopping centre Eurovea will open gradually. The first part of the shops and services will even be open to the public before the official opening which is on May 25th.

New brands and concepts

Two boutiques of American fashion brand Calvin Klein Jeans and Calvin Klein Underwear, Czech cosmetics Manufaktura and established Spanish brand Desiqual are opening in the existing arcade on the ground floor. New travel agencies Čedok, TIP travel and SUN & FUN HOLIDAYS will open on the lower ground floor. The biggest attraction at the opening of the new section will be the two-storey first store of the Irish fashion chain Primark in Slovakia. The exclusive representation of famous brands in fashion boutiques and brand stores will include many big names not only in fashion but also in cosmetics, home and sporting goods, jewellery and shoes.

First Cinema City Megaplex in Slovakia

August will also be special for cinema enthusiasts, who will be able to enjoy the best films in high definition thanks to new projection technology in up to 17 cinema halls. The entire Megaplex will be divided into 8 completely new halls with modern and comfortable seats that will guarantee high comfort while watching a movie. An even greater movie experience and extraordinary comfort will be brought by 4 VIP halls with luxurious seats, whose total capacity is over 300 customers, and the concept of VIP refreshments directly to the hall will be even more interesting.

Eurovea will become the largest and most comprehensive shopping centre in Slovakia after its opening, offering 320 shops, restaurants, bars and cafés in an area of 85,000 sqm. The shopping centre is directly connected to the first Slovak skyscraper Eurovea Tower, the office building Pribinova 34 with BREEAM Excellent green certificate and the Riverside residences lining the Danube promenade. The development also includes the extension of the waterfront promenade, the construction of Pribinova Boulevard with the preparation for the tram line and other public spaces, playgrounds and sports grounds, which will gradually be added in the newly emerging downtown district of Bratislava's Eurovea City. The concept for the organisation of Pribinova Boulevard and the design of the public spaces was proposed by the internationally renowned architect and urban planner Beth Galí.
