The legendary cafeteria may be replaced by an apartment

Very few restaurant businesses in Bratislava can be called immortal. Jedáleňu Orbána (Orbán’s Canteen) is one of them.

In a sense, it offers a journey into the era of communism. People who dine in small restaurants accept its “old-fashionedness” and praise its credibility.

But the future of this food facility is uncertain.. New real estate projects, including the construction of flats, could replace the small restaurants on Malý Trh Street. We plan to build a total of 17 apartments on the second floor and above. A luxurious flat with a terrace and green space should be built on the 6th floor.

This project also includes activation of Malý Trh. Streets need to form a more important part of public space. The restaurant is still open at this time as the owner has not received a document leading to the termination of the lease.

Craig Ramsey: I’m always nervous before the match

In a daily interview with Sme, the Canadian coach of the Slovak ice hockey team admitted that he was always nervous before the event. Shortly before the 2022 tournament begins, he assures us that his boy will work hard.

“I want to do my best and I want the team to do their best. I’ve spent a lot of effort and time choosing a team and setting directions,” said the coach.

Craig Ramsey also shared his views on the opponents of Slovak players in the group, which some fans and experts simply call compared to the teams they faced last year. I touched on the difference between the new team and the team that won the bronze medal at the Olympics. It also celebrates the 20th anniversary of Slovakia’s gold medal at the 2002 tournament in Gothenburg.

“It’s been a big achievement for players from years ago and they should be very proud.” You can read the entire interview Here..
