Before you travel to Bratislava by plane - good to know!

Buses, trams and trolley buses all ply the streets of Bratislava, so visitors don't need to worry about getting around. And if travellers want a more active way to see the city, the Slovnaft Bajk (cycle hire) scheme has excellent coverage and offers affordable rates. For a medium-sized city, there's also a lot to see. For the very best views head up the hill to the Kazmik Radio Tower, or take the elevator to the top of the more centrally located UFO Tower. The Blue Church offers Art Nouveau architectural delights, while the castle and its Museum of History tell the exciting story of the Slovak capital. But don't miss the Museum of City History as well (in the Old Town). Its torture instrument collection is fascinating and chilling in equal measure.
