What Are the Reasons to Visit Bratislava?
Visit the Old Town
You’ll be spending more of your weekend here so make the most out of absorbing the amazing architecture, huge squares and hidden, narrow streets. Michalska, Farska, Kapitulska, Venturska, Panska, and Laurinska are all the streets worth a visit to see some amazing sights and scenes.
Probably the most iconic landmark in the city is the castle perched on top of a hill overlooking the old town. Here, you can grab some amazing views of the city all over including the river and the UFO bridge as well as learn about the nation’s history if that kind of thing interests you.
The UFO Bridge
The second most iconic landmark is probably the bridge and this is where the restaurant and bar can be found atop the tower. Sit back and chill out at the bar, cocktail in hand and indulge in the amazing views of the city in the best possible way.
The Street Art
Bratislava is a beautiful city filled with amazing historic buildings but a lot have been run down. However, there’s been an emergence of street art in recent years which sees many of these buildings beautified with interesting pieces of art. Zupne Namastie and under the UFO bridge are hotspots for these quirky colourful images.
Wine, Wine and More Wine!
There’s plenty of wine bars to pop into and there’s even a Slovak National Collection found next to the Old Town Hall. Here, you can sample 80 wines in 100 minutes as part of a guided tour before taking your favourite home with you. A sure way to get merry!
A docked boat called the Dunajsky Pivovar serves craft beer on the top deck of a boat throughout the day and offers fabulous views of the River Danube, the old town and beyond. You can relax on their lounge chairs on the deck for hours, trying various beverages and tucking into delicious food.
