He claims that history and culture are the main attractions of the Slovak capital. In his story, he mentions Bratislava and Devín castles, the Slavín war memorial, as well as the Blue Church.

“What is perhaps the most picturesque and unexpectedly enjoyable experience is a simple stroll through the Old Town of Bratislava,” the writer continues.

Moreover, he points out budget-friendly eating and drinking in local restaurants and bars.

“Visiting Bratislava during the week is an ultra-relaxing experience as the Old Town is nice and quiet and you’re not likely to be waiting for too long for a table in a bar or restaurant, if you’re even left waiting at all.”
