Bratislava is often overlooked by tourists who gravitate to Prague, Budapest and nearby Vienna which is only one hour away. A shame because this city on the Danube River has a whole lot to offer. It’s smaller than the big three, the people are warm and welcoming, there’s a vibrant cafe/bar scene and a bunch of interesting sights to see. It’s also easy to navigate your way around the sights on foot in the compact and historic Old Town. We spent two nights here but could have easily spent another night.
The impressive buildings below were constructed during the 15th to 18th centuries.
