Our city is not that big, it is quite small town. You must consider all pros and cons. Because you cannot buy here things such as a Mcdonalds, electronics or branded clothes. But there is one big benefit. In our city is no pollution, no smog or no traffic jams. reconsider it. And choose wisely. See you.

Bratislava is a somewhat compact capital city, though that comes with the downsides of heavy traffic for its road network. Anyone moving here should know the higher rental costs of living closer to the centre might offset the time required to travel in from the more affordable outskirts. Consider also that it would be prudent to learn at least basic Slovak language as many shops, official government agencies and older people will not necessarily have many English speakers.
