    Thank you for an amazing 7 days! More engagement opportunities with children, such as music lessons, would improve everyone’s experience, as well as more clubs and other themed events and gatherings. Thank you, Elliot Yaroslavsky

    I’m very thankful for the great stay here at Pristaniste! I appreciate the welcoming staff and the great amenities. However, the best part were the people. Extremely friendly and always positive. I appreciate all the things you do for this wonderful space. With regards, Denis Batalov

    We feel that no one word or phrase can fully encapsulate the kindness, warmth and depth of the impact you have the community in Budva. Thank you [from the bottoms of our hearts] for this opportunity, for continued care and support of those in need, and for taking us in with such open and ready arms.
    We wish you [the best of luck] with the future, and hope to see you again in the near future.
    Warmest wishes, A. Shpazov (sleep needs are fully kicked in, sorry for errors)

    I am infinitely grateful to the Pristaniste Foundation for their shelter. I am incredibly happy for all the help and support. Here you feel at home, safe, like with relatives. Volunteers with big hearts. Here you understand that we all actually want only peace. Friendship is possible, and borders are only in our heads (no) - only on the map. All the best to you!
