We hope that you are all excited about our annual society trip! During this trip we will visit two central-European capitals, Vienna and Bratislava.

Vienna is believed to be the most cultural and glamorous city in the world. Today’s relevance of the city for the international community stems from the present UN bodies in the Vienna International Centre, which will seek to visit (IAEA, CTBT, UNHCR, UNIDO and many others). To experience the lifestyle of thousands of diplomats and UN officials living in Vienna, we will also participate at a concert of the “Mozart Ensemble” in the “Mozart house”, which is the oldest concert hall in Vienna and the place where Mozart used to work and play.

Bratislava should be less serious and even more fun. We will experience the reasons for which is Bratislava described as the Europe’s most relaxed city (its old-town charm, sophisticated restaurants, traditional pubs, good music, cheap drinks and tasty food). The added spice of the visit to this city will of course be provided by its renowned night-life attractions (price of one pint is less than a pound).
