A small city with a bubbly personality, Bratislava is one of Eastern Europe's most attractive and welcoming cities. Each year it attracts huge numbers of visitors thanks to its myriad of attractions and its friendly residents. 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.

    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.

    Overall, the place is good for a day trip. We actually managed to explore most of the attractions in about 5 hours. The food there was alright.

    Insider Tip:Must check out Bratislava Castle and Devin Castle. They are very beautiful

    Bratislava is a reasonable place to stop off for a few days if travelling through, although it's become increasingly touristy over the last 10 years, and can be very busy on Friday and Saturday nights. I wouldn't rush back on a weekend, and would favour returning during the week when there are less tourists and stag-parties

    Insider Tip:Devin castle - short bus trip, or longer boat trip is a pleasant place to spend an afternoon.

    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
