Travel Info: Bratislava
Bratislava, the capital of Slovakia, is a fun, quirky city, without being overly crowded with tourists. It is a lovely spot to visit, and works nicely in a combined trip to Vienna, Prague, and/or Budapest. Bratislava is not expensive, so it’s a great choice for enjoying wonderful hotels, foods, wines, and souvenirs without breaking the budget. Slovakia is a beautiful Eastern European country, with mountains, forests, wineries, picturesque castle ruins, and the majestic Danube river in the west, running through Bratislava. It was part of Czechoslovakia, which was formed after WWI, and separated in 1993 into the Czech Republic and Slovakia. Here are our quick travel info tips for planning a visit to Bratislava.
