Hi zuzka,
I seem not to see the problem, if passport expires in 2015, why couldn't you visit Bratislava in 2014? Please elaborate the issue

Hi Mary,
as you live in UK, which is already a part of Europe, I think you will not need any visa. There will be no passports checks in Bratislava. However, please make yourself 100% clear by contacting Ministry of foreign affairs - www.minz.sk
Thank you

Hello Riza,
this is a very specific question and honestly we are not experts on visa. In my opinion it should be OK, but I am not even 50% sure. Please contact Ministry of foreign affairs (http://www.mzv.sk/en/home) to get the answer.
We would be glad if you share your foundings.
Regards.

Hi Joe,
I think you do not need visa if you stay not more than 90 days. But I would confirm this information with embassy.
Hope it helps.
