“Spectators will learn not only about various interesting and funny facts as well as legends, but they will see places were usual visitors cannot get to,” BTB stated.

BTB decided to support places that have lost all visitors and have to be closed now in times of crisis and quarantine measures in connection with the coronavirus. The idea of the project is to present to Bratislavans and all Slovaks touristically attractive places.
