Dom Quo Vadis

Dom Quo Vadis would like to become the spiritual heart of the city centre of Bratislava and show that God might just be closer to his children than you initially thought. All ethnic groups, religious beliefs or political opinions in good will are welcome as long as they are tolerant, respectful and open-minded. Dom Quo Vadis is an institution which wants to prove that catholic values and the church are more than strict rules and praying; the only things that are not welcome are prejudices.

The house was built by the Catholic Church and volunteers and is being run by volunteers and 2 full time employees supported by the Church next doors. Around 40 volunteers, most of them are young adults and some students, volunteer for Dom Quo Vadis regularly.

In Dom Qou Vadis one of the main visitor-magnets is the café on the ground floor. Run by volunteers it offers a hot-chocolate that could already count as a local treasure (it was recommended to me even before I had seen old town when I arrived), coffee and tea for a fair price which every visitor is able to calculate for themselves.

The house owns a large meeting room for about 80 people, which they also open to NGO's and city events. They also provide space for social, political, philosophic or religious discussions and host music groups. In addition to that free dance lessons from time to time are offered as well as travel evenings and bible group meetings. The gallery space offers a new exhibition every month in which you can enjoy paintings or sculptures. In the end of each month Dom Quo Vadis hosts a charity market fair which proceeds are being fully donated. Downstairs there also are calmer places for people who want to relax or study, read one of the numberless books the house offers or have a chat with a group of friends.
