Enjoy river views and make time to relax in Bratislava
Take a trip to the Slovakian capital, Bratislava, which boasts craft-beer bars, an attractive old town and historic palaces. Just an hour’s drive from Vienna, Bratislava is also a great place to relax with a leisurely pace and welcoming cafés and pubs, and the mainly pedestrianised old town is a charming location to enjoy a reasonably priced drink. Those interested in the city’s heritage can explore Bratislava Castle, from where you can enjoy views stretching as far as Hungary and Austria. The castle has towered over the city since the 9th century and once housed the crown jewels of the Kingdom of Hungary. A trip to Bratislava includes the option of a scenic boat ride back to Vienna along the Danube.
