The capital city of Slovakia, Bratislava, has an incredible location along the banks of the Danube River, on the border of the Carpathian Mountains with its rich vineyards. It is just about 60 km north-east from Vienna and a short drive from both Hungary and the Czech Republic.
Dating back to Celtic times, Bratislava has 2000 years of rich history. It has been part of the Roman Empire, and over centuries, the city attracted royal families such as the Habsburgs and has seen coronations of Hungarian kings including the empress Maria Theresa.
Bratislava is one of the youngest capitals in Europe and during the time it was called Pressburg or Pozsony it was one of the most important cities in the Austro-Hungarian Empire. People of different nations used to live peacefully together, such as, Austrians, Czechs, Germans, Hungarians, Jews and Slovaks.
The city was the capital of the Kingdom of Hungary under the Habsburg Monarchy from 1536 to 1783, and has been home to many Slovak, Hungarian and German historical figures. The citys multiculturalism and charm was damaged during World War II, followed by 40 years of communism.
In the course of these years many have forgotten Bratislavas legendary past. Recently Bratislava withstood a great reconstruction and cultural reawakening and made an amazing comeback, turning into a favorite city break destination with the Old Town freshly renovated.
Tourists are rediscovering the citys charming baroque Old Town and gothic treasures, stylish restaurants, inviting cafes and teeming night life. The modern Bratislava is full of lively cafes, upscale shops and inviting restaurants open to strolling tourists.
Some of the city highlights include the massive Bratislava Castle which is the preponderant of the city, St.Martin's Cathedral, Michael's Gate, Grassalkovich Palace, Old Town Hall, Curious Statues of Bratislava, Slovak National Gallery, Bratislava City Gallery, and a lot more! Bratislava Opera or Philharmonic is also a good reason to visit the Little Big City.
The city also has a great night life scene going around. The Irish bar Dubliner, Slovak Pub, Groove Lounge, and more are good to hang-out at night. Jazz Cafe, Nu Spirit Bar, and Woch are great for live music.
