Bratislava, on the way between Vienna and Budapest, is often skipped by many tourists visiting the other two capitals. However, it has much to offer, noticed the website culturalplaces.com, which listed it among Top 10 Underrated Cities in Europe.

“It is a beautiful city brimming with old town charm, cobbled streets and fairy-tale buildings,” wrote the website. “The city is small – perfect for exploring by foot and you can explore all the important spots in two days.”

The website also highlighted two castles - Bratislava Castle with amazing views of the city and Devin Castle – the highly instagrammable ruins located on the borders with the Czech Republic and Austria.
