Visitors to the city run the gamut from culture vultures looking to enjoy all that the city's historical centre has to offer, to the partygoers who come to Bratislava to sample its far from insubstantial nightlife.

    Nice city to spend a day

    Bratislava is a good city to spend a day, maximum 2 days and not because there's nothing to see, but because it's pretty small. Enjoyed our stay in Bratislava/

    Great old town

    The old town is beautiful, you can easily get yourself lost in the warren of streets. The Soviet WWII memorial is definitely worth a look as is the castle.

    In close proximity is Devin Castle, which I would recommend. You could do that and all of Bratislava in a day easily. The museums are alright but nothing special, the town hall one was a bit disappointing. Personally I don't like Slovakian food, but there's a stall that does really good burgers (and builds it in front of you). Nightlife is good if you know where to find it - ask the friendly locals in the street, a couple of nice bars to be found, a rooftop one was also popular.

    Insider Tip:Ask a local for tips on the good bars/clubs. Take a dip into the (smaller and safer) river if you find yourself at Devin Castle, also some Iron Curtain memorials behind the castle.

    Small, charming, crazy

    This city is perfect for a weekend, you have nice sightseeing to do as well as night activities with a different variety of options. All the main attractions are at a walking distance and you can have amazing food if you look for it.

    Insider Tip:Even though it is not an expensive city, try to look for restaurants away from the city center. You will find much better options at a lower price.

    Cute Town

    Very small city centre that you can explore the entirety in about 3 hours - including the castle. I liked this city because I really just needed a chill out place after being on the road for so long.

    Insider Tip:Come here if you need a break from city hopping.
