Bratislava is perfectly perched on the banks of the Danube, which makes for Instagram-worthy scenes aplenty. A river cruise will let you see Bratislava from an all-new angle as you enjoy floating serenely along the city’s waterway, savouring a peaceful view of the world passing by. Alternatively, embark on a cruise to the wondrous hilltop Devin Castle. Marvel at its precarious position atop the peaks, 212 metres above sea level, or take a trip to the top and enjoy breathtaking views of the Danube far below.
Bratislava may be morphing into a modernist haven, but it still tells tales of times gone by in tantalising style. Step back to the flashy design of the art nouveau period with a visit to the Church of St. Elizabeth, combining 50 shades of blue into one of the most stunningly decorated interiors you’ll ever experience. From there, try something slightly older – the 14th-century St. Martin’s Cathedral may not pack the same punch inside, but its awe-inspiring crown contains more than 300kg of gold in its structure.
The city has undergone a large transformation over the past few decades, and nowhere is this more evident than at the sci-fi inspired Most SNP – the UFO bridge. Wander the curved walkway over the Danube, or head to the curiously placed UFO that towers over the bridge. The restaurant inside gives you truly unique views over the rest of the city.
Perched on the banks of the Danube, Bratislava seamlessly combines modernist blunt designs with opulent structures from the past, creating a unique atmosphere that’s primed for exploration.
The mix of eras that come together to inspire intrigue in Bratislava is an attraction all of its own. Take some time to soak it in and let yourself imagine the waves of change that have washed over the city throughout the years to facilitate the stark contrasts.
Visit some of the city’s most famous landmarks, from St. Martin’s Cathedral and Bratislava Castle, but don’t just look at them. Climb to the top and watch the see sprawling city stretch out in front of your eyes. From the pastel hued old town to the grey Soviet era structures and the concrete jungle of the modern urban area, it’s a stunning insight into how the city has evolved.
Experience another European capital just down the river. Frequent catamarans run along the small stretch of Danube between Bratislava and Vienna. Create the perfect day trip to Austria’s regal capital and admire the ruined castles along the river banks on the way.
Art lovers will enjoy the Danubiana Meulensteen Art Museum. A sculpture garden adorned with modern-art masterpieces greets you on the perfectly manicured lawn. Inside, stark white walls are awash with brightly coloured paintings by some of the most celebrated Slovakian and European contemporary artists. Bratislava Castle is also home to the Slovak National Museum, so step inside to witness collections dating from the Middle Ages through to the present day.
