Braňo is a local born in the Slovak capital Bratislava. Together with his brother Peter, they became popular by guiding in their classic as well as crappy communist-era Škoda cars since 2010. Their company Authentic Slovakia also offers bike tours, wine tours and tailor-made experiences with a focus on individuals and small groups.
His parents worked in the tourism industry since early 1980’s during the socialist Czechoslovakia, organizing trips to Eastern Bloc countries in the state-run travel agency Slovakoturist. During the 1990’s, American couples visited their household regularly for a week thanks to his parents’ membership in the Friendship Force association that organized international host stays.
Thanks to this background and living abroad, he was encouraged to guide foreign travellers in Slovakia. Braňo got a degree in geography and he is amazed how Bratislava has been changing after 1989, so the focus of his tours is on real life, local stories and the turbulent 20th century.
His tours surprise, amaze and take you also where tourists usually don’t go. He will be happy to show you Bratislava and Slovakia like a local!
