Bratislava region 5th in EU in concentration of students - Eurostat
Bratislava, October 5, 2007 (Bratislava-City.sk) - Bratislava region has the fifth highest concentration of students among European Union regions, according to Eurostat, the EU' statistical office.
Eurostat compared the student population to population in the 20-24 age bracket in each of the 268 regions of the Union's 27 member states. A ration of 100% meant that the number of students equalled the number of people aged 20-24. In 2004 only eight regions reached a ratio greater than 100.
The Prague region around the Czech capital reached 150, followed by Austria's Vienna with 126, Brussels with 120 and Brabant Wallonia with 111 in Belgium. Bratislava region ranked fifth with a ratio of 106%.
A high ratio would mean that a large share of young people are in higher education. This is likely to influence the overall social climate in the region.
Bratislava is the seat of Slovakia's largest university, Comenius University, the largest technological university - the Slovak University of Technology, as well as the Economic University, two art universities and several smaller private institutions.
Figures are based on an Eurostat press release about the 2007 regional yearbook.

[img1]The finals of the European Trophy - the Red Bulls Salute - will be played from December 13th to December 16th, 2012 in Vienna and Bratislava. It will be the first time the Red Bulls Salute, an invitational tournament that became the final of the European Trophy in 2010, will not be played in Salzburg.
Launched as the Red Bulls' invitation tournament and now the highlight of their international calendar, the event continues to break new ground and after seven years it will, for the first time, not be staged in Salzburg. The Red Bulls Salute 2012 is seeking new international challenges and this year will, in addition to Vienna - which was added as a venue last year - take place for the very first time in Bratislava (Slovakia).
Maros Krajci, General Manager of Slovan Bratislava Hockey Club says: "Bratislava is looking forward to welcoming the final tournament of the most prestigious ice hockey club competition in Europe. The city proved to be a fine host of the last year´s IIHF World Championship in its modernized 10,000 seat arena. Bratislava will get another great opportunity to foster its international image and attractiveness on the background of a first-class sporting event. For me personally, hosting Europe´s best hockey clubs will be a first-class gift for our enthusiastic fans at the end of the year in which we celebrate the 90th anniversary of playing ice hockey in our city."
