The city of Bratislava is situated at the foot of the Little Carpathians, stretching along both banks of the Danube river. Beyond its sublime natural landscape, the city is filled with trendy restaurants, cosy cafés and myriad theatres, galleries and museums.
Slovakia's capital city is characterised by medieval structures and baroque palaces. As you wander around the Old Town, you can visit the ninth-century Bratislava Castle, overlooking the city from its position atop a rocky hill. Your Bratislava itinerary can also include Michael’s Gate, the last-preserved medieval fortification of the city. Another noteworthy landmark to explore is the rococo-style Grassalkovich Palace, the residence of the Slovak president.
Performing arts thrive in this Slovak city. On your trip to Bratislava, take some time to enjoy a show at the Slovak National Theater. You can also visit the Reduta Bratislava concert hall, where the prestigious Slovak Philharmonic resides.
While architecture, history and culture dominate the daytime in Bratislava, the city's party scene takes over the evening. You’ll find plenty of clubs and bars concentrated around the Old Town where you can dance until dawn while enjoying cocktails and local beers.
