Slovakia’s capital Bratislava is a cultural melting pot, where east and west Europe meet in a fantastic mixing of culture, cuisine and cosmopolitan appeal. Often overshadowed by cities in neighbouring Czechia or Hungary, Bratislava is something of a hidden gem, providing all the stunning architecture and cultural wonders, without the crowds of tourists. The Slovakian government is also keen to open it up more to tourism and there has been much investment in recent years, meaning there is no shortage of contemporary dining, accommodation and tourist amenities in the heart of the city.
Offering a unique skyline, that sees a juxtaposition of different architecture, from remnants of the Austro-Hungarian style to the ominous structures of the Soviet Union, Bratislava’s fascinating history is what gives it its unique cultural charm. If you are looking for a new destination, away from the crowds, that can boast ancient castles, sprawling vineyards and an unmistakably unique culture, then you should definitely consider Bratislava for your next city break.
