    We express our great respect and gratitude to Natalia and the entire Pristanište team for the opportunity to recharge. Thanks to Ksenia for the tour in Kotor and to Olga for letting us taste the mountains.
  • Maxim and Yulia, Khabarovsk
    We would like to say that if it weren’t for this truly magical place “Pristanište,” we would hardly have been able to adapt quickly, or even get here…

    This is our first time in Europe — few people from Khabarovsk travel further than Moscow. But it so happened (we suspected it would!) that we began to be persecuted for our views and political stance. Here in the cozy “Pristanište,” we were able to breathe freely!

    Thank you to the foundation and volunteers for meeting us, transporting us, helping with our luggage, providing a place to stay, making our bed, and providing delicious food and personal hygiene products. This is a tremendous help and support! Once again, thank you sincerely!

    We very much hope that we will settle well. In some European country, we will receive a stable salary and be able to allocate a percentage to help the foundation!

    We know that all this horror will end someday, but still, there will be many more waves of immigration and refugee crises ahead, and many people will need our help and the help of the Pristanište foundation!

    Glory to Ukraine!
    Russia will be free!
    We won’t give up, we just can’t!
