"Bratislava - The Beauty on the Danube" Bratislava by macicka

Bratislava Travel Guide: 2,014 reviews and 4,542 photos


Bratislava - city of coronation, universities, Danubemetropolis, the capital of Slovakia. Bratislava is also called the heart of Europe. It is well and reasonable situated, reachable from all of it's sides.
Dominant are also The Small Carpats, which are reachable especially from my neighbourhood but also from other places in this town.
The main languages during the period of Austrian-Hungarian monarchy were Slovak, Hungarian and German. Some books say that old citizens still speak these 3 languages but I've never met anyone who would do.:)
Bratislava used to beunder the leadership of Maria Theresia and Maximilian 2nd but those times are gone.
Bratislava has been changing last years (fortunately) and has about 450 000 inhabitants.
Although the city is very well situated, the transportation in the cty is horrible... You just need to be patient while you are stucked in the traffic jam and need to catch your flight;)

Laurinska street

This is one of the streets in the centre. There is a symbolical gate reminding us of the gate that used to be there in the past (the name of the gate was hte same as the name of the street today, so Laurinska gate). Gate was destroyed in 18th century.

Pros and Cons

    I enjoyed your travel tips about Bratislava and would love to visit someday. Your Istanbul photos were also very interesting. It looks like you saw more of the city than I did during my stay last year.
