Straddling the Danube river and bordered by the Morava, Bratislava boasts an advantageous location in Central Europe, a skilled, affordable labor force, and a generally positive forecast for investors. The city is uniquely situated on the border with two countries, Austria and Hungary, on Slovakia’s far-western edge. Proximity to western Europe has afforded this city of just under half a million inhabitants relatively steady economic growth, with major investments by the likes of Volkswagen, Kia Motors, IBM, Samsung, and Tesco.
Slovakia has enjoyed near-constant economic growth since its integration into the European Union in 2004 and the Eurozone in 2009, and EU investments have accelerated the development of the nation’s infrastructure. During the Cold War, the country became an industrial landmark within Central Europe, establishing a tradition in heavy industry that persists today. Slovakia is now the world’s most prolific automotive producer per capita and home to a bustling service sector and multiple thriving IT hubs. FDI in the country more than doubled between 2018 and 2019 to USD 2.5 billion.
The CTPark network in the wider Bratislava region offers several A-Class properties, including CTPark Bratislava, located on E65 highway, which links the city to Brno and Prague. Additional properties can be found in neighbouring Voděrady and Trnava.
