Description

 

Bratislava is a beautiful, sweet capital with, narrow streets, complicated history, different influences and hospitable people who speak soft language.

The two dominant parts of historical city Bratislava are just a minute‘s-walk apart. The first part worth seeing is the historical centre with a beautiful Slovak National Theatre Building on one side and Saint Michael‘s Gate on the other. Admire the St. Michael’s Gate and trod upon the paved streets of Primatial Square, Main Square, and Franciscan Square. Make sure you visit St. Martin’s Cathedral, the largest and the most distinguished church in Bratislava city. St. Martin’s Cathedral once served as a coronation site of the Hungarian monarchs. Another historically impressive part of the city is Bratislava Castle with its stunning views. Quiet alleys with a steep climb will lead you right to the castle. If you are not in the mood for a longer and steep walk, the castle is accessible by a trolley bus departing from Hodza Square. The castle offers spectacular views. 

If you are interested in history, you may wish to visit the following museums in the city of Bratislava:

-Music Museum, Museum of History (Bratislava Castle)

-Archaeological Museum (Zizkova Street)

-Museum of Transportation (Sancova Street)

-City Museum (Old City Hall, Main Square)

-Museum of Natural History (Vajanskeho nabrezie)

Art lovers will surely benefit from visiting the city’s gallery with the exhibitions in the following locations:

-Primatial Palace

-Mirbach Palace

-Palfy Palace (Panenska Street)

 

Make sure to greet Bratislava citizens-monuments:

- Hans Christian Andersen was in Bratislava,so his monument (Hviezdoslav square)

-Cumil(man at work) from underground hold his cap/nose for luck

-Napoleon soldier standing behind bench 

-Papparazzi new built monument

-Schoner Naci -silver guy with a cap off- citizen from 20 century, very friendly and talkative, real person

 

A snack at a café can be had for between €1 and €4. Most restaurant meals are priced between €2.75 and €15.

From traditional food try: Bryndzové Halušky, Kapustnica soup and Žemľovka for desert. And of course beer! For example Zlatý Bažant
