Re: Readers suggest ways to promote Bratislava July 21 - August 3, Vol 9 No 28

I think Bratislava and other tourist destinations in Slovakia need some decent internet sites. Various individuals are producing some useful stuff, but there is no really useful, regularly updated site out there in English. I put 'what's on in Bratialava' into Google and got general weirdness + various combinations of 'Bratislava + concerts' and got info about concerts in 2000!

I also wanted to find out about boat trips on the Danube and just got general info like they exist - great. Maybe that stuff is out there, but while I'm spending two hours trying to find it I might just decide to go somewhere else.
