Nestled at the foot of the High Tatras Mountains in northern Slovakia, Poprad is the gate to the Tatras National Park known for its stunning historic heart with a population of about 55,000. This is a town for those who wish to take their snow playthings such as skis or snowboards to their coworking space in the mornings, just in case they have time during the day to run outside to play in the white fluffy flakes during the winter months. During the summer, it is a matter of swapping the ski accessories to those of hiking for a bit of a trek to clear the brain.
Poprad has beautiful baroque buildings, centuries-old houses and plenty of churches to say your prayers in. Surrounding the picturesque town are the wilds of the mountains where you can gawk at huge gorges or maybe take a chilly dip in a lake. For the train enthusiast, this is the starting point of the Tatra Electric Railway that connects the resorts of the High Tatras with each other, or if you want to go further afield you can pack your lunch and go to Prague in the Czech Republic.
Poprad is definitely not a tech or startup hub but more of an escape hatch for those over being in a smog filled big city environment. This is where you can do your own thing and create your own serendipity work/life balance. Slovakia's startup scene is dominated by founders under the age of 35 with 85% having a university or college degree. Most bootstrap without an external investor and with the introduction of laws defining what a "startup is" in 2017, it has opened the door for many to get government help by way of hiring personal coaches, less government paperwork and a web site dedicated to information about support schemes.
Coworking venues play an important role allowing inventive souls to mingle in one space where they can collaborate and learn from each other, even if it is in the wild mountains.
