Bratislava overview and attractions

 What kind of city are you, Bratislava?

There is no simple and universal answer to that question, since this city on the river Danube and on the slopes of the Small Carpathian mountains one must get to know personally. It is a young and very dynamic city, but in spite of this - with a rich and attractive past. This city virtually breathes with creative working energy and cultural life. It has the face of a big European city, a centre of business, education, culture and international relations. Bratislava's ex-centric position does not hinder the Slovaks loving this city. It seems that there are no more capitals like this - situated on the border to three states, what is an advantage Bratislava always knew to exploit - and it will so in the future. Bratislava is Slovak and international at the same time and attractive not just to students and youngsters, but also to bankers, businessmen and foreign investors. This city becomes an information-crossroads and a communication hub between the East and the West. Those, who visited Bratislava at least once, take home some beautiful memories and the desire to return into the arms of this city sometime again.

10 things you can’t afford to miss in Bratislava

- Visit to the Primatial Palace with its unique 17th century collection of goblins

produced in England – something you can find only here, in Bratislava.

 

- St. Martins Cathedral. From 16th century until the beginning of 19th

century, the Habsburg emperors were crowned here. It is also the place

in which Franz Liszt conducted his first Coronation Mass in the 19th century.

 

- The Bratislava Castle rises above the city from 15th century. The Castle

offers a beautiful view of the river Danube, the city and the Austrian territory.

 

- The Devín Castle, which is one of the most notable sights related to

the history of Slavic nations. Its history does not know any borders: on

a sunny day, you may even see a silhouette of Vienna.

 

- The Main Square surrounded by several palaces and buildings built

in different centuries and diverse architectural styles. The Old City Hall will

overwhelm you by its grandeur and the history of the Roland’s fountain will

amuse you.

 

- The Castle of Červený kameň (German: Rotenstein, English: Red Stone)

located 30 km from Bratislava. A stronghold, the fortification system of which

is beyond compare, was designed by Albrecht Dürer himself and was owned by

the mightiest aristocratic clan of that time - tie Fuggers.

 

- Tasting fine Small Carpathian wine. Bratislava and its surroundings represent

the most significant wine producer in the country. Slovak wines are not being

exported and so this is the only place where you can try them.

 

- The Mayer’s place – a traditional Bratislava cafe, with a friendly interior,

where you can try the famous Bratislava rolls, or enjoy the Mayer’s cakes.

 

- A small antique train, the Prešporáčik, can literally bring you back in time,

to the old city of Pressburg (historical name of Bratislava) and take you

to streets, which are often overlooked by tourists.

 

- Close to Bratislava, it’s Vienna, one of the most beautiful capital cities

in Europe. Only recently, the Twin City Liner catamaran line was opened on the

river Danube that can take you directly to the heart of Vienna. A river cruise

along the Danube is a breath-taking experience that will never fade away.
