things to do in Bratislava

Bratislava is the gorgeous capital city of Slovakia. It sets along the Danube River between the borders of Austria and Hungary. The famous Old Town is filled with adorable coffee shops and bars. Bratislava is definitely worth a visit!

When to Visit Bratislava

Fall and Spring are the best time of year to visit. During these seasons, Bratislava’s temperature is comfortable and it’s not as crowded as summertime.

How Long to Stay

Bratislava is very small, and you can see everything in one day. However, I recommend staying 2-3 days to really soak in everything the city has to offer.

What to Wear

Dressing for Bratislava is easy! A maxi dress with fall tones would be perfect to match the cobblestone streets and historic architecture.

Be sure to bring a good pair of sneakers for hikes and walking tours.
