Tours in Bratislava

Bratislava is the city where we were born and have lived our lives since. It is an exciting city, if you take a look under the cover. And we are excited to reveal you its stories with no censorship. We love its hidden corners and prefer going off-the-beaten-track. If you also feel like leaving the tourist crowds in the Old town, join us to explore authentic places of Bratislava facing its post-communist past.

Bratislava is a thriving city in transformation. Former multicultural Preßburg/Poszony/Prešporok with connections to Vienna and Budapest has become Bratislava in 1919 looking up to Prague. Experiencing unprecedented growth during communism in Czechoslovakia and open to capitalism today. Local insights guaranteed!
