You Say Bratislava, I Say…


  • Cosy and charming. It is a little worn down in the edges. The traffic lights don’t work, the buses are from the 70s. At the same time, there is so much that is new and shiny.
  • Grey. The winter is grey. There is a certain greyness to the city.
  • Windy. It’s always windy.
  • Great people. Some of the greatest people I’ve ever met, I’ve met here.
  • Sports. Everyone seems to be doing sports and ice-hockey is one of biggest sports, now. We like that.
  • Crazy working hours. When I flew to Austria, I read an article about starting business in Slovakia. Apparently Slovaks are the most cost-efficient workers in CEE. You know what that means, right?
  • Wine and cheese. Slovaks know all about wine and cheese. For someone so into these particular products, Bratislava is heaven.

How are you finding the Slovak language so far?
