Straddling the Danube River in the middle of Europe is Bratislava, the capital of Slovakia. Mountains, sprawling vineyards, and hiking and cycling trails are all a stone's throw from hotels in Bratislava (that is, if you're a very good pitcher). And when you want to come inside, you'll find history, culture and lively nightlife ready to take over.
Things to Do in Bratislava
Bratislava hotels put you in a great position to explore the historic centre of Slovakia's capital city. Wander down cobbled streets lined with 18th-century buildings, stop by a cafe to pick up a traditional nut roll, then climb to the medieval Bratislava Castle. Don’t forget your camera, because the castle has far-reaching views over the city, the countryside of bordering Austria and (on a clear day) even into neighbouring Hungary. On the way back to your Bratislava accommodation, stop at the City Museum to find out about Slovakia's central role in European history.
Want some fresh mountain air? Bratislava sits at the base of the Little Carpathian Mountains (which aren’t so little, after all), and only 40 km separate the city from the ski slopes of Pezinska Baba. Snow bunnies, take heart—Slovakia's higher peaks can stay skiable until as late as May.
Getting To & Around Bratislava
Bratislava Airport (BTS) is easy to reach from many European and international cities, and is just 80 km by road or rail from Vienna, Austria. Once you're in the city, take advantage of the city's extensive network of buses, trolleys and trams to get where you want to go. The historic city centre is compact and easy to traverse on foot.
