Trying to transform the Slovak capital into a green city full of compassion where residents can enjoy high quality of life, mayor Vallo has launched numerous major projects and implemented a series of game-changing policies. This Bratislava-born politician graduated from The Faculty of Architecture at the Slovak Technical University, one of the largest and oldest technology universities in the country. After receiving a Fulbright scholarship, he went on to attend the world-famous Columbia University where he completed research on the topic of civic engagement in the city.

This ambitious scheme includes key topics that mayor of Bratislava wants to tackle in order for the city to realize its full potential. Plan Bratislava serves as a master plan to develop the city and transform it into a modern urban metropolis.
