What people say

"Bratislava is beautiful, walkable and compact. You can find information on what to see in pretty much any guide - there aren't that many sights. You can easily cover all the main ones in one day, unless you spend time in museums or galleries. Ideas for trips outside of the city centre: - Devin Castle - unlike Bratislava Castle, this is more of a ruin, but it has been preserved, and restored and is definitely worth a visit (you will get amazing views too). To note, there is an entry fee. - Take a boat to Vienna along Danube. This is a fun, albeit more pricey day trip. - Schloss Hof - this beautiful palace is actually located in Austria, but you can easily get there from Bratislava - have you ever crossed a border to another country by simply walking across a bridge? It's mindblowing! Make sure to check out the official website for info on special events. Also make sure to get there early in the morning to give yourself plenty of time to explore - the palace has vast grounds which have been turned into an educational and interactive experience, so you can easily spend a full day there.

"Bratislava is the capital of Slovakia and is only 57 km from Vienna. In fact, being close to the border, it is really very easy to reach it. Being very small, it is possible to visit it in a weekend. 📍Distance: 57km 👣How to get there:it can be reached in just over an hour by direct train from Vienna Central Station to Bratislava Petralka station, where you will have to take bus 93 which will take you to the center of Bratislava. "
"A beautiful capital with so many layers of history within its walls. Find a lot to see and do, and catch your breath in one of the brilliant restaurants listed further down in this guide. "
