Located in the heart of the mobility district, the Slovak pavilion's theme is "Future movements: Hydrogen, aviation and space". Other key exhibits include the Androver space robot, originally created for NASA, and a flight simulator created by Slovakian company Virtual Reality Media, which specialises in flight simulators and ground technology.

The theme of the pavilion is "The Movement of the Future: Advanced Hydrogen and Aerospace Technologies Take Green Mobility to New Levels".
The concept of the exhibition adheres to this theme and presents the modes of transport of the future created in Slovakia. The design of the pavilion creates a dynamic and at the same time visually neutral environment, which is constantly changed by the data on the TVs and projectors. The content displayed by the technology can change the atmosphere of the space in an instant and, thanks to its unlimited character, offers unlimited possibilities in creating the space and presenting the products. The non-contact display, which brings almost holographic effects in a hazy veil of atmosphere and virtually generated spaces, creates a time and space travel experience. Organic forms, undefined rooms with semi-transparent elements show that everything is already possible.

The visitor becomes a co-creator and editor of the content that is presented and creates interaction for all ages and interest groups. From a simple presentation, it becomes shapeable content that pushes the boundaries and transfer of information.

The content concept of the Slovak exhibition is focused on the presentation of innovative and sophisticated technologies in various segments of mobility, with emphasis on: hydrogen propulsion technologies as the fuel of the future, technologies in the aviation sector and technologies in the space sector.

The main exhibits of the Slovak pavilion are the hydrogen car MH2, the mobile space robots Androver I and II and the VRM simulator.

The concept of the pavilion was created by Absurd studio - Ivan Kulifaj and the architectural design by Sieberttalaš - Matej Siebert, Roman Talaš


The objective of the Slovak exhibition is to create an attractive space for a prestigious presentation of Slovakia and to establish relations with individual visitors, countries and business partners. The participation of Slovak business entities is covered by the Slovak Investment and Trade Development Agency SARIO.

The EXPO is a unique global platform for accelerating our economy, developing business opportunities, and boosting Slovak tourism. It can serve as an impetus to move the entire HORECA segment and overcome the effects of the pandemic period.

SLOVAKIA TRAVEL aims to present Slovakia as an attractive and contemporary destination, to help tourism, hotels, water parks and other institutions survive the difficult period of the pandemic, and to bring foreign tourists back to Slovakia. This will be a presentation on a market with a strong tradition and historical relationship with spas.

In addition to spas and hot springs, SLOVAKIA TRAVEL would also like to present national parks, a selection of unique ecotopes and natural resources, UNESCO national cultural heritage monuments, caves, mountains, castles and chateaus, as well as cities such as Bratislava, Košice, Banská Štiavnica, Kremnica, Levoca, etc.

The presentation is based on the latest technology, and will adapt the content projected on a large 360-degree screen in 4K resolution to these themes.

The restaurant in the Slovak pavilion - whose concept is based on Andy Warhol, one of the most famous personalities of Slovak origin - has been extremely popular since its opening at Expo 2020 in Dubai. The menu was prepared by renowned Slovak chefs Martin Zahumensky and Jaroslav Židek. Their concept incorporates traditional ingredients and innovative variations, and of course includes the traditional Slovak cheese gnocchi bryndzové halušky.
