After a freezing day on the street, the night spend in dormitory is a redemption. Not even a few layers of thick clothing will replace a roof over your head.

De Paul

Dormitory St. Vincenta de Paul shelters more than 180 homeless people. It is the largest one in Central Europe. People under the influence of addictive substances without signs of aggression can also find help here. In addition to soup and bed, medical treatment, shower and spare clothes are available. The premises do not meet European standards and volunteers thus replace the role of the state.
