The town of Prievidza (Trenčín Region) launched a mobile application at the beginning of the summer season to support its local tourism.

The application is in Slovak and English languages and also has an audio version, the TASR newswire reported.

“With this step we are responding to the to up-to-date technologies that young people use so well,” said Ivona Vojtášová of the town’s commerce and tourism department, as quoted by TASR.

The application will provide to tourists and visitors all necessary information about the town and the surrounding region, including details about historical monuments and options for spending free time. The application works with Android phones, iPhones and iPads, Vojtášová said.

“On the basic menu, visitors will find town information, a current town map and cycling and hiking routes, as well as information about swimming pools, tennis courts, cultural sites and other attractions and facilities in our town and in the surrounding area,” Vojtášová said, as quoted by TASR.

The town plans to add a German version of the app in the future and may also include other languages.

“Visitors who don’t have the time or desire to read information on their mobile phones can also use the audio version,” Vojtášová added for TASR.

The application cost €4,000 to create, and the town will also allocate funds for regular updates.
