Would someone with physical disabilities have difficulties living in this city?

In general yes. As with much of eastern Europe, they haven't caught up with ADA laws. - May 2016

Yes. Many governmental offices are located in old houses, many without elevator. - Jul 2014

Maybe in the historical sights there might be difficulties because of the lack of stairs. - Aug 2011

The same difficulties one would experience in any other Central European city. There are ramps and accommodations on newer buildings, but the old buildings and streets would probably be harder to navigate. - Jun 2011

I think it should be ok in most parts. - Mar 2011

This city is not set up well for a person in a wheel chair. - Jun 2010
