The city council also provides a subsidy to people who want to remove graffiti from their houses or buildings. A total of €150,000 has been set aside for this purpose in the city’s budget for 2017, with the sum increasing each year.

The public has shown massive interest in the subsidy, with the number of applications increasing annually.

“The high interest is proven by the fact that the funds available for 2017 have already been divided among the applicants,” said Bratislava Mayor Ivo Nesrovnal as cited by the TASR newswire.

In recent days, graffiti has also been removed from Námestie Slobody (Freedom Square), and clean-up work will continue on pedestrian overpasses across Einsteinova Street.
