Our Story


We are Peter and Braňo and we are brothers, born in the Slovak capital Bratislava. Our 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 our household regularly for a week thanks to our parents’ membership in the Friendship Force association that organized international host stays.

Thanks to this background, we have been thriving to guide foreign travellers in Slovakia. Peter studied philosophy, Braňo got a degree in geography. Both of us are amazed how Bratislava has been changing after 1989, so the focus of our tours is on real life, local stories and the turbulent 20th century.

With this passion to observe Slovak society and history, we founded Authentic Slovakia tour operator in 2010. Since then, we got together a team of young, enthusiastic, local guides who love to share their stories and knowledge.

Our tours are private or in small groups, personal and interactive. Our tours surprise, amaze and take you also when tourists usually don’t go. We will be happy to show you Bratislava and Slovakia like a local!

what others say about us

Best tour we’ve ever had

My fiancé and I had only a day in Bratislava so we decided to book a 4 hour Post-Communist Bratislava private tour with Peter.

Let me start by saying that it was the best tour we’ve ever done. Peter is an amazing guide – from the moment he picked us up outside the train station in Zelda (the green 1970s Skoda that brought us around Bratislava for the day), until the end of the day, we enjoyed every second of the tour. It was never boring – Peter asked us at the beginning what we hoped to get out of the tour so even though we knew the sights we’d be seeing, it was still a very personal and non-scripted tour.

The sights were fascinating, there’s no way we’d ever have gone there ourselves without the tour. We were so sick and tired of seeing castles, cathedrals and art galleries so this tour was such a refreshing change. Even the snacks Peter gave us were super authentic.

If you are in Bratislava, don’t miss the opportunity to a tour with Authentic Slovakia. These guys are so passionate about telling the history and present of their city/country – you’ll leave with more knowledge than you could ever read in a book or online.

Thank you again Peter for such a special day!

We will bring the country, its people and culture to life
