It is a great pleasure to welcome you to the website of the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in Bratislava. We aim at providing you with important and interesting information, both on the Netherlands as on the activities of the Embassy. The most recent information, including facts, figures and fun, you will find on our Facebook page and Twitter.
The mission statement of the Embassy in Bratislava emphasizes the economic relations between Slovakia and the Netherlands, the political ties between the two countries, both bilaterally and in the framework of the EU, NATO and other international fora. With our team, I hope to further the cultural ties, our mutual understanding, as well as to give our support to initiatives from the business community and from civil society. As many of you know already, a large part of our consular work is carried by our colleagues in the Embassy in Vienna. Obviously, in cases of emergency you can always contact us through the telephone numbers on the consular page of this website.
As an Embassy, we are dependent on the views and ideas of both the people of Slovakia and the compatriots living in Slovakia. For that reason, we are always open to suggestions on topics we should deal with and on ways to improve our website.
Richard van Rijssen
His Majesty’s Ambassador in Bratislava
