Project Description

Bratislava

As one of Europe’s smallest capital’s Bratislava is a relaxed city with a delightful mix of beautiful old town, stylish restaurants and a wide range of music. Standing on the banks of the mighty River Danube it is easy to see why it is an increasingly popular choice. The once former royal capital of The Kingdom of Hungary, teamed up with the wrong side during the war and then, largely at the hands of the communist regime, lost a lot of its old beautiful buildings and charm to ugly buildings and major industrialisation.

A symbol of the city, Bratislava Castle commands a panoramic view of the city and the Danube from its hilltop position. Now mostly restored and open to the public it houses items from the Slovak National Museum and is also used by the Slovak parliament. Outside are beautiful ornamental gardens to relax and take in the views. If you’re feeling energetic, continue past the attractive hillside villas to the Soviet War Memorial at Slavin. Otherwise follow the quaint cobbled streets down to the traffic-free old town. Visit the historical main square Hlavne Namestie, where there is a modern statue of Napoleon’s Army soldier leaning over a bench.  The Town Hall is home to the City Museum and the Primatial Palace, where Napoleon signed the peace treaty are one of the main attractions.
