Enhance your experience in Bratislava with IWCB


Why Join IWCB?

The promotion of friendship, cultural exchange, activities & interest groups, and charitable action are just some of the reasons why we, as IWCB members, joined this vibrant group. Enhance your experience in Bratislava by forging connections, growing friendships and making fond memories.

Data doesn’t lie! Scientific evidence supports that belonging to a group such as this can positively enhance life and self esteem. One particular experiment dealt with a group of women who had low life satisfaction. Some of the women were introduced to others who shared their situation, and some of the women were left on their own to deal with their concerns. Those who interacted with others saw a 55 percent reduction in their concerns over time, while those who were left out on their own showed no improvement.
— Hunter and Liao, 1995
