Dave Rubin was a Manhattan-based lawyer when he landed in Bratislava during his travels around the world. That was ten years ago. Dave has since founded a successful language school in downtown Bratislava and spends his free time exploring his new town and country. How does a city boy from Brooklyn fall in love with castle ruins in the Small Carpathians? Dave names most of them in this episode - and there is more of them than you might think.
