“We greatly appreciate your work because the fact is that nowadays it is quite difficult to orientate among so many businesses and places to visit, out of which many often provide poor quality. It’s valuable that you often visit these places incognito to try them out first – just like you did with our cafe. Tried a couple of times so you really are assured that the quality of service and the offered assortment are not a matter of coincidence. This is how it should be done. We wish you all the best in your future partnerships!” Ida Kozlova, Owner of Kapucino.
“WTB published an article about our bistro Žufaňa with detailed information about us, our specialties and recommending the WTB team’s favourites at our place. We love their authentic pictures and comprehensive text. We are excited to be part of their top selection for the Best breakfast places in Bratislava, too. Thank you for including us on your website!” Jana Hoosova, Co-founder of Žufaňa.
“Maria and Zuzana made a great piece of work to create this page. It is rather a unique place where people can find a lot of various activities or places in Bratislava with a detailed description and unbiased appraisal.“ Emil Haas, Founder of Brainteaselava.
“A well written and curated blog that’s chock-full of useful and interesting info for tourists, expats and locals who speak English. I highly recommended this website as a place to turn to for everything that’s happening in Slovakia’s capital city. The team has done an amazing job with keeping the blog up to date and very user friendly. They have interviewed me and featured my improv theater group on the blog several times. They are very professional, down to earth and passionate about their work. Their popular blog ensures that small, independent event organizers such as myself are able to get help with publicity and marketing. They go out of their ways to cover events that are of interests to foreigners. Thanks to them, Bratislava’s arts and culture is accessible to everyone even if they don’t speak Slovak. My theater group, Funnylicious, is proud to have them as our media partner.” Hon Chong, Founder of Imagine Center for Learning, Funnylicious Improv Theater and Story Nights.
“Working with ”Welcome to Bratislava” is extremely effective. As an event organization we had a problem at the beginning with event attendance. However with ”Welcome to Bratislava” blogs and advertising, our event attendance raised by more than 30%.” Maria Hrvatic, CEO & Founder of Internationals Bratislava.
“Festival [fjúžn] is a unique and the largest multi-genre and multicultural event focused on migration and foreigners in Slovakia with both national and international significance. It goes beyond one type of art (concerts, exhibitions, literature, theater, film, lectures and presentations, discussions, community events, children’s programs and school events). And so it was natural that our two projects met and, even more so, that they started to support each other and cooperate. I am glad that there is a project such as Welcome to Bratislava that supports not only our festival but also other activities and people living in Bratislava/Slovakia. The project is also beneficial because it represents different foreigners among us and shows us that we do not have to be afraid of them. Last but not least, Welcome to Bratislava is also an excellent guide to Bratislava not only for foreigners. In a special way it replaces the role of our capital, which sometimes communicates incomprehensibly when providing information in English for foreigners living here. I am glad that foreigners who come to study, work, or for love to Bratislava, or just for a while to see the capital of Slovakia, will learn from this website relevant and exciting information.” Martin Brix, Manager at [fjúžn] festival.
“These girls are what foreigners visiting Bratislava really needed! Their enthusiasm and passion devoted to this project is incredible! The Bridgin´Drama theatre has been cooperating with them for some times and it has always been a pleasure. They’re determined, creative and always willing to help. They’ve put a great deal of effort to share our projects and events with our potential viewers on the website and we wish them luck to continue such great but hard work.” Michaela Vrabova, Co-founder of The Bridge Language School & The Bridgin’ Drama Theatre.
“For us, Bratislava was a place to call home for almost five years. Never a dull moment. Your page “Welcome to Bratislava” was an important reference for help to enrich my personal curiosity and interests, to discover the beauty and hospitality of the city. Your page is chock full of notes and information on clusters of points of interests, spectacular events, cozy and cool places to chill out, and up-to-date happenings, which is nicely well presented. And cool. I would say that you deserve utmost appreciation for making our stay in Bratislava much more enjoyable and memorable. One more point, your page is a treasure for travellers and fun-loving people in getting tips to locate instagrammable places, spots, and corners of this beautiful city. Thank you for your friendship and cooperation. I treasure my acquaintance with Bratislava personality like yourself. Cheers.” Toro Purbo, Former Ambassador of Indonesia.
“It was a small wonder for me – someone writing an article about me! The first article in my life! I am grateful for this step in my career to the team. They do a great job! When I need to find new cafe or a good place for running, I visit this website. Everything important is in one place. It is a real inspiration. I wish them to go on and be in step with the times, as they are.” Kate Grishakova, Painter & poet.
“Dear girls, I think it’s great that you have created such a nice project as WelcomeToBratislava has become. I believe it is very helpful for anyone in Bratislava who is new or here to visit. It also includes many great tips, essential for even those who live their whole life in the city (like me) and who might think they can not be surprised by anything :) Your website is full of inspiration on what to do, where to go or which event not to miss. A place for people who want to experience the city fully. Good luck, you’re doing a great job!” Sandra Conortova, Founder of Popono.
“I personally noticed WelcomeToBratislava.eu a couple of years ago and once we were approached with the offer being mentioned on the website, we were pleased and honoured. Maria and Zuzana showed up at the shooting range, they tested our services and made some good hits on the targets there. Their blog article about our shooting facility that was published a couple of days after their visit was another precise hit on the target and it is very well written, descriptive, objective and easy-to-read. WelcomeToBratislava.eu is currently the best English speaking blog on Bratislava and I recommend it to both visitors of Bratislava and foreigners living here on long term.” Richard Mistik, Managing Director, Stag for You.
“We would like to thank the whole Welcome to Bratislava team for great articles about our cocktail bar in the city center. Our team is very keen on your willingness to bring the SPIN cocktail bar concept to tourists – visitors to Bratislava. The professional approach and enthusiasm that we encountered when your editors visited us, is quite rare. Without any further corrections, the final article was precisely describing what we offer, what we are and what our concept is. The Welcome to Bratislava portal is clear and very well-worked out. We also hear it from our guests – when randomly asking how they got to know about us (as we are hidden in a small street), they often refer to this website. This is indeed a great tool to reach Bratislava tourists. Thank you and we wish you a lot of new readers, you deserve that!” Michal Trizuliak, Managing Partner, SPIN Cocktail Bar.
“Dear Maria and Zuzka, I discovered welcometobratislava.eu about a year and a half ago and I was surprised by the good articles I could find there. Original texts, nice photos, useful information and great tips. Processed in detail and clearly done with love and aim to help others. A bit later I had a chance to personally meet the girls behind the project and was thrilled about their workmanship, organizational skills, sense of detail and loyalty. Many times during my travels I am looking for similar projects in other cities as well – I find official city websites and blogs, but nothing as original and with such an added value as welcometobratislava.eu. It’s a pity you are not everywhere!” Tina Babikova, Founder of Eventland.eu.
