About Demobit

About Demobit

Demobit is a sentimental Slovak demoscene event with more than 20 years tradition taking place in Bratislava and Nitra. The demoscene represents an international computer art subculture that specializes in producing demos: small, self-contained computer programs that produce audio-visual presentations. The main goal of a demo is to show off programming, artistic, and musical skills.

Why did we resurrect to organize Demobit 2017?

Now, the first Demobit organizers and participants are 20 years older, full of nostalgic memories, have decided to bring Demobit to life and organized a special resurrected version of Demobit. We are also restoring all our forgotten friendships and contacts asking for their invaluable help.

History of Demobit

The life of Demobit began in 1993. The first and second Demobit was organized by a group of enthusiastic students (Zden, Skywalker, Infi) at Bratislava highschool. The third and the biggest Demobit party was held in Bratislava's PKO with more than one thousand attendees sponsored by the first Slovak computer and software companies (e.g. ESET).

Travelling in Bratislava

You can either use Bratislava Public Transport (for journey planning see http://imhd.sk/ba/public-transport) or reputable taxi services (install the iOS or Android applications HopinTaxi https://hopintaxi.com/ or Liftago https://www.liftago.com/) which are also quite popular in Bratislava.
Uber is also well supported in Bratislava and recommended to use.
All these mobile applications can allow you to make a price estimation for the given trip.

Bratislava has a very negative reputation of dishonest taxi drivers regularly participating in a robbery of the foreign tourists. Avoid them and prefer the reputable taxi services or Uber.

Arrival by Plane

Using Bratislava Public Transport - probably the best combination is a bus 61 from the airport "Letisko" to "Račianske mýto" and then the bus 91 to the "Televízia". For detailed information see Journey Planner http://imhd.sk/ba/public-transport from "Letisko" to "Televízia". At the airport, there is a public transport ticket machine. The traveling time is about 45 minutes, so you need to buy a 60 minutes public transport ticket for 1.20 EUR.

The more comfortable alternative is to use Uber, HopinTaxi or Liftago.

Be Aware: Never take a random taxi at the airport if you are a foreigner and do not speak the Slovak language.

Three different bus companies can help you to get you from Vienna Airport (Schwechat) to Bratislava:
1. Regiojet https://bustickets.studentagency.eu/
2. Blaguss https://www.flixbus.sk/
3. Slovak Lines https://www.slovaklines.sk/main-page.html

All buses leave the Vienna airport from the same one place in 20-30 minutes intervals. Expect 4-8 EUR/person. These buses take you to "Most SNP" or the central bus station "Autobusová stanica". If it is possible, prefer the bus station "Most SNP" that is closer to the Demobit place.
