About Bratislava

The capital of Slovakia is a youthful, exciting place to be. The majestic river Danube snakes through the city center, 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.

Quick Guide To Bratislava

  • Must Know: Getting around the city is simple. Taxi cabs are cheap and easy to hail, and the buses will take you anywhere you need to go.
  • Must See: One thing that no visitors should miss is a climb to the ramparts of the castle. Aside from the glorious views, the Museum of Clocks in the grounds is a treat.
  • Must Do: No trip to Bratislava is complete without a walking tour of the Old Town either. Ask at your hotel for guided tours, and check out the Mirbach Palace to see the Baroque art collection.
  • Did You Know: Bratislava is the only capital city in the world that borders two independent countries.


Important Stations and Airports for this Journey





Traveling to Bratislava

When traveling to Bratislava many people arrive at Bratislava Airport, which is around 9 km from the city center. Alternatively, you can catch the train to Hlavna Stanica station, 5 minutes to the north of the Old Town. The bus station in Ruzinov is 15 minutes away by foot as well, so everything is pretty central.

Traveling around Bratislava

If you are staying in the city center, walking is the best way to get around. Be sure to pick up a tourist map from your hotel. If you want to travel further afield, taxis are easy to book and very cheap, and the excellent bus and tram network runs from around 4:00 a.m. until 11:30 p.m. There's also a bike and scooter hire service, which could be even more convenient. The Old Town isn't known for its parking spaces, so Bratislava is probably not the best place to hire a car.
