Tour description

On this tour you will explore the alternative, not so nice, history of Slovakia and Bratislava. During 50 years of the 20th century, we were a dictatorship. During the 2nd world war, the country of Slovakia was on the side of the axis, and after the war we became the eastern block, however both regimes hurt many people. We will visit the monuments, squares (Stalin Square, Gottwald Square), unique buildings (upside down pyramid), last standing synagogue and many more. (There is some reconstruction near the sites we visit, please keep this in mind)

Martina was amaaaazing! So fun and made the whole experience incredible. Great knowledge even to every question thrown at her and her "chipmunk on caffeine" energy was hysterical

This was an extremely good walking tour! I really enjoyed it and the information was great. I especially enjoyed the pyramid and the statues we saw. It was a very serious topic but it was handled very professionally and with a little bit of humour at times. Couldn't recommend more

Excellent overview of the 20th history. It doesn’t shy away from the ugly parts of history, but also leaves on a note of optimism! Highly recommend.
