How to get
to the site?

By foot from the bus and train stations, it’s about half an hour to the building. However, there are two buses you can choose from.

Whether starting from the bus or train station, you must get to a bus stop called “Železničná stanica” (Train station). It’s located in front of the blue building of the railway station. You’ll be getting on bus number 3 to “Čutkovská dolina”. Your stop is called “Katolícka Univerzita” (Catholic University). From there, you should continue walking for about 5 minutes in the same direction as your bus. Soon, you’ll encounter a big yellow building. There will be arrows pointing from the main entrance (maybe even on the fence) to guide you, and our volunteers will assist you, too. 

The other bus starts from the same spot (Železničná stanica), and its number is 5, “ŽST Rybárpole”. Your stop is the last one - “ŽST Rybárpole”. From there, it’s a 10-minute walk to the site. You must go towards the railway, cross it and then cross the river to get to the main road. Our building should be right in front of you.

If you get lost or need help, call the numbers listed below in “Contacts”.


All international guests will stay at the guesthouse Malino located at Hrabovská cesta 1677/29, 034 01 Ružomberok. Each room comes with its own bathroom, LCD TV, internet access, and parking. The guesthouse is around 15 minutes away from the main site. The lodging is all paid for by SLSK. 

Food and the special programme

The food for Saturday and Sunday is taken care of by SLSK. Friday’s dinner is not included. There will be three meals (breakfast, lunch, dinner) on Saturday and breakfast and lunch on Sunday. 

During the stay, you will have the opportunity to explore Ružomberok and its surroundings with our volunteers from the International Committee. This unique programme should help you better understand and get to know Slovakia as well as SLSK. :) You’ll learn more about this at the event.
