Bratislava City Reviews

  • 80%



    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.

    Good on your wallet

    Good for the free walking tours and cheap beer. Unfortunately the old town centre is very small due to Soviet city planning to modernize the city and the Bratislava Castle is local but you have to pay to go inside. On the plus side there are a good amount of bars to check out as well as events.

    Insider Tip:Slovak Pub is a great budget restaurant to try the local food/beer. A cool club to go to is Subclub right under the castle in an old military bunker. If you are here more than a few days then we recommend taking the 20-30min train to Devon's castle just outside the city. Lots of history and great views!

    Nice City

    Some people may get bored in the city quickly. You can see a lot in a day but it's a nice city to walk around in. You can always go on a day trip out of the city as well.
