Stunning Places to Visit in Bratislava

Slovakia, Bratislava Guide (B): Stunning Places to Visit in Bratislava

Once I’d booked my flights and started researching places to visit in Bratislava, I quickly became discouraged. There seemed little of note to see, and much less chatter on social media and travel blogs about the wonders of this hidden European gem. I solicited recommendations on a few occasions and was met with sullen silence. This did not bode well for my trip, and admittedly I was not expecting a great deal from the city, but prepare to be impressed.

This baroque beauty has more than enough hidden treasures to keep you entertained for 48 hours. Indeed, you could spend much longer in the city, visit the nearby cities of Vienna and Budapest, and other attractions around the city. With budget flights available from Manchester and London, now is the time to book a weekend getaway to Bratislava. Go before the word gets out and don’t forget to take this guide.

Head to the Old Town (Stare Mesto) and wander the cobbled streets, lined with pastel coloured baroque palaces, restaurants and souvenir shops. Onion domes dot the city, outdoor cafes line the squares and tourists throng the alleyways gorging on ice cream and beer. It’s a fabulous place to people watch, and there are some truly sublime sights. If you don’t fancy walking, you can jump on the city train (pick it up in the main square by the church) and take a one-hour tour of the Old Town for €10. Headphones are provided and commentary is available in 11 languages. ...... (follow the instructions below for accessing the rest of this article).
