Holiday in Bratislava

The Slovak capital Bratislava has a charming historic old town and is equally noticeably in transition to become a modern metropolis. This contrast results in an exciting flair: small alleys in the listed city center are juxtaposed with huge shopping centers and emerging high-rise buildings. The 'beauty on the Danube' with its charm is a perfect vacation spot for a (long) weekend and convinces by the way with delicious food, thanks to a large gastronomic offer. If you want to make a detour into nature in addition to the inner-city sights - including the sublime Bratislava Castle, from which you can enjoy a magnificent view - you will find a botanical garden and the Little Carpathians in the near vicinity.

About

Due to its location at the border triangle with Austria and Hungary, the Slovak capital Bratislava is the only capital in the world that borders more than one neighboring country. Moreover, Bratislava is only 55 km from Vienna as the crow flies, which is the smallest distance between two European capitals (apart from the Vatican inside Rome), and is ideal for a trip by car, bus or train, or by boat or bicycle along the Danube.

Already upon entering the city, the beautiful Bratislava Castle, the city's landmark, is prominently visible. It towers over the historic Old Town and is a wonderful vantage point. Only a few minutes' walk separates it from the cobbled streets of the historic city center with pretty house facades and various sights. The mix of modern construction projects - such as the skyscrapers that have been helping to shape the cityscape for several years - and old buildings that exude a certain 'Eastern Bloc' flair makes Bratislava an interesting place where people with a wide variety of travel motives feel at home. Especially in terms of gastronomy, an international atmosphere has developed, which is largely due to locales with urban food and interior trends. Many live concerts and parties attract younger guests, while those interested in culture can visit a variety of museums and galleries. Sports enthusiasts benefit from Bratislava's location on the Danube Cycle Path.
