What is the relative size of the expatriate community? How would you describe overall morale among expatriates?

High morale, medium size community. - Aug 26, 2017
It felt fairly large. I made friends with people from other countries and also Americans not with the embassy. - Jun 22, 2017
Morale is fair, but not great. - Feb 11, 2017
Morale is high. There are some expat groups in Bratislava. We have found, though, that there's so much to do -- places close by to travel to, etc. -- that the community here isn't as close as in other places we've been. - Sep 19, 2016
Small, but good morale. People really like it here, as life is affordable, the local people are friendly, and there is so much great traveling both in Slovakia and to neighboring countries. My 10-month old son has already visited 10 countries in Europe. - Jun 23, 2015
Very large for a country of only 5 million people. There are many American and European business people living here. - Dec 25, 2009
Very large. - Apr 7, 2010
