It has always been on my list of places to visit. The old town has been kept amazing and it’s clean. That is one thing that i noticed is the pride the locals have. The streets are clean, gardens green and general neatness. OK, there is graffiti but I like that. The street art shows a lot about the country.
We spent a few days there and the weather was on our side. It made sight seeing pleasurable. The Austria Trend Hotel was in a perfect location at an affordable price too!
The highlight was the post socialist tour by Authentic Slovakia who were fantastic! We were taken around in a 1980’s Skoda. It was superb and can see why they score so highly on TripAdvisor. They even gave us some socialist coke-cola as well as taking us around the city. They didn’t even mind that our trip had over run. 10/10 guys! It is a must do.
Some top sights to see are:
- Bratislava Castle
- The old Town
- St Michaels Gate
- The UFO / Bridge
Like always, the list of places to see/experience is far too long and one day, we’ll be back.
I even made a photobook for the first time which can be found here.
