    Bratislava in September

    Bratislava was OK. I didn't think it was that interesting. It is nice to visit if you go from Vienna to Budapest (or the other way around) but I wouldn't plan an entire stay in this city.

    Not the greatest

    It comparison to cities near Bratislava (Budapest/Vienna etc) its not really anything amazing... its actually rather expensive for what it is and probably because its so close to Vienna... Rather go spend time in the Tetras up north if you want to see Slovakia

    I expected a lot more of this city. In some part of city is like you are still in age of communisam, lot of ugly and destroyed buildings. But old town of Bratislava is very very nice. Food is great, and beer is cheap.

    Insider Tip:Drink Kozel beer

    Small town

    Very small city with a fascinating history which isn't well explained or made the most of. We saw most of it in one afternoon. Most architecture was destroyed by the communists. Not such good value now they are in the euro. Local cuisine not great

    Insider Tip:Go up to the Slavin memorial or rent a bike and cycle to Devin castle along the river.
