Former booth offers information

TOURISTS and citizens of Bratislava are getting another source of information in Slovak, as well as English, about the capital, its sights or offering of social, cultural and sports events. The first multifunctional information terminal made from a former telephone booth was put into operation on September 22. It is located near the Passenger Port on the Fajnorovo nábrežie embankment, the TASR newswire reported.

TOURISTS and citizens of Bratislava are getting another source of information in Slovak, as well as English, about the capital, its sights or offering of social, cultural and sports events. The first multifunctional information terminal made from a former telephone booth was put into operation on September 22. It is located near the Passenger Port on the Fajnorovo nábrežie embankment, the TASR newswire reported.

“We are still fighting in Bratislava with the problem that the average tourist does not have enough information about programmes he or she can attend or how to spend time in Bratislava,” said František Stano from the destination management organisation Bratislava Tourist Board, as cited by TASR.

The booth will be accessible every day around the clock, and Stano believes that the number of such booths would gradually grow to 100.

The booth-turned-information-terminal is a pilot project of the Fox One company which owns the former telephone booths which no longer serve their original purposes in almost 24 towns across Slovakia. It wants to continue turning them into information terminals, while it should get also some assistance from the EU to do so, as it cost it about €30,000 to transform the first booth into the information terminal.
