Bratislava City Reviews

    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.

    one night is enough

    Worth a visit, we stayed for 2 nights and thought the 2nd night not needed. Litter everywhere and not a building without graffiti. Old town is nice but certainly won't be rushing back.

    Insider Tip:One night only.

    Bratislava Slovakia

    Great smaller town, history, lots of things to see, super food, awesome people they all were so friendly and helpful. That interaction with the locals was great!! Easy walking to most everything, along the river. Transit very good to get around.

    I heard some bad reviews from people, but I have to say I disagree with them. Bratislava had a lot of fine qualities: It was really inexpensive, people were generally quite friendly and the old quarter was very beautiful. Sure it has some bad points but overall it was quite nice. Well worth a trip.

    Insider Tip:Don't say take to me to the girls to a cab driver unless you want to be taken to a brothel. Once you clear this misunderstanding up and are taken to a real night club you best be real cool because the women are pure class and do not suffer fools.

    Worst city to spend time at!!!

    That's the most boring city on the planet... by far! Literally you can't do anything there! I'll never come back there. Maybe after 30-40 years, for an hour. Just to see IF anything has changed (doubt it though).

    Insider Tip:Patio hostel is a good place to stay at!
