About Bratislava

The capital of Slovakia is a youthful, exciting place to be. The majestic river Danube snakes through the city centre, while the Old Town is filled with churches, markets and museums and the imposing bulk of the city's medieval castle. Although it's an ancient city, Bratislava also has plenty of modern architecture to enjoy, along with acres of green space and promenades along the river. Then there's the beer - some of the best you'll taste anywhere in Europe.
