    A big city minus the problems big cities face!

    I'm not a party person, but I truly enjoyed Bratislava! You don't see many crowds and even though they use euro, prices are cheaper than in other Eurozone countries!

    Insider Tip:Don't miss Bratislava Flagship Restaurant! Best price-quality radio for food I've ever had!

    Very interesting

    Bratislava is very interesting with its communist past, some modern and old architecture. A high speed highway and a castle very close to each other. Some abandoned buildings, cheap beer and lots of history and culture to learn.

    Bratislava was absolutely charming. I was not there long, yet I still feel like I did a lot of the sightseeing there is to do there because as far as cities go, it is rather small. It is very walkable. I had some great food and beer.

    City where old and new is an enjoyable mixture

    Bratislava is a great 1 weekend city, if you are only seeking for tourist attractions. We have achieved all of attractions pointed out on the tourist guide map. Otherwise, it could provide you more fun, if you were up to experience other layers like pubs, clubs, galleries.

    Insider Tip:Try the 1st Slovak pub, they have very delicious pirog, and halusky.
