Headquarters of Slovak Television at Mlynská dolina

Mlynská dolina (literally: Mill valley; before 1894 German: Mühlthal, Hungarian: Malomvölgy)[1] is an informal part of Bratislava, the capital of Slovakia. Officially, it is part of the Karlova Ves borough, located in the Bratislava IV district. Geographically and historically it constitutes a much larger area of the entire valley of the river Vydrica, including its upper part located in the Little Carpathians mountains, today no longer associated with Mlynská dolina.

In the present, Mlynská dolina features two faculties of the Slovak University of Technology in Bratislava, the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and the Faculty of Informatics and Information Technologies and university dormitories housing up to 15,000 students, the largest of its kind in Slovakia. The area features the Bratislava Zoo, headquarters of the former Slovak Television housed in one of the tallest buildings in the city, the Botanical Garden of the Comenius University, one of the largest cemeteries in Bratislava, Slávičie údolie and many upscale residential areas. Mlynská dolina is served by the D2 motorway.
