The Bratislava City Museum celebrates Bratislava City Days by making all its expositions accessible to general public.

Around the end of April, the mayor of the town was traditionally elected in Bratislava, based on a charter of the King Andrew III on granting municipal privileges in the course of a relatively long historical period.
