Perched on both banks of the Danube, the charming capital city has been shaped by more than 2,000 years of history. The impact of Celtic, Roman and Slavic invasions can still be experienced in this ancient city, all leaving their mark on the culture, architecture and locals of Slovakia. The glut of architectural styles are brought to prominence through a mixed palette bringing the colourful buildings to life, with buildings of blue, pink, orange and green sitting peacefully, side by side.
Bratislava has enjoyed a prominent position, financially and culturally, throughout its existence. The wonderful placement on the Danube, at the intersection of European trade, helped Bratislava become one of Europe’s great Renaissance-era cities. And thankfully, Bratislava and the locals revel in their history, with the charming Old Town carefully maintained for current and future generations to enjoy. There is a sense of stepping through time as you work your way through the beautiful streets of the Slovakian capital, enjoying the relaxed café culture and time-honoured culture.
