The Men's Floor

For five months I lived in a student dormitory in Bratislava, Slovakia. I lived in a floor only for men. On weekdays people were cooking in the corridors on small portable stoves and I would hear guitars being played in many rooms. On weekends I could barely see anyone there, as many local students left for their families. For many of its residents, Svoradova is the first place where they live without their parents.
