Bratislava is the capital of Slovakia and remains one of the least explored cities to this day. For some unknown reason this beautiful, small and very charming town hasn’t made it to the top bucket lists of many frequent travelers. And that’s their mistake.
Bratislava is located on the banks of the brown-colored river Danube that passes it all the way from Germany and Austria through Slovakia and into Hungary, Serbia, Romania, Bulgaria, finally ending up in the Black sea. Therefore, one of the best ways to see some of the major European capitals, such as Vienna, Budapest, and Bratislava would be by a boat. There are some organized tours that offer these excursions and you can find some of them on the internet.
Unfortunately I only had one day to spend in Bratislava, which gave me very little time to learn about this city, much less about this country. What I did find out quickly is that since Bratislava is a small city, you can easily explore all of its major sites on foot in… less than a day.
Another thing that I was happy to discover is just how friendly Slovakian people are! I didn’t meet a single person in Bratislava who would pass me by without a smile or even a greeting.
I will not lie to you when I tell you that I was very sad leaving Bratislava. This city has this visible charm where you instantly feel cozy, peaceful and at home. However, I did promise myself that one day I will certainly be back to explore the entire country.
