A wonderful and compact city center with many booming cafes and a sweet homie atmosphere. A refreshing change from the busy and touristy cities like Prague or Vienna. One or two day trips will be enough but the city does make you feel very comfortable....More

Very lovely and "warm" place. It is so nice to walk around, see the real old buildings, stop for great coffee, enjoy live music.

Our Bratislava pass gave us a free tour of the city. We really enjoyed it and she was very informative. We got to enjoy the Old Town with a better perspective.

You can explore what is quite a sizeable Old Town in Bratislava which offers bags of Middle Age history, photograph opportunities, scenic views and tonnes of character. Really surprising how large this Old Town as it stretches toward one side of The Danube. Filled with...More

Enjoyable stroll in the city center with many interesting spots to see. And if your feet hurt you’ll find the best places for a short break just on your way. Either relax in a cafe or have a gorgeous meal in a restaurant.
