I visited Bratislava several times in the last few years and enjoyed buying glazed pottery/art at a store called In Vivo. I believe it was found near some Embassies. I am going back to Bratislava next month and can't seem to find the address for the store. I hope it still exists! Can you help me?
ADMIN: In Vivo art shop is located in the courtyard between Hviezdoslavovo square and Panska street.
