Local information


Bratislava is a very charming and multicultural city that is sometimes called "little big city". We know that this is not a unique case and, for example, the same term is used for denoting Lisbon in Portugal and Reno in Nevada is being called the biggest little city in the world, but you know, the population of Bratislava is somewhere between Reno and Lisbon and if you liked them, you will love Bratislava too. Cute and elegant city centre, impressive views, e.g. from Kamzik TV tower or from the "UFO cafe", or Bratislava castle - the main castle complex in Slovakia, are only some of the places you should visit. For more tips on what to see and what to do, we refer to visitbratislava.com.
If you are interested in city exploration, we recommend you to download an appropriate map or a brochure for free.

Janek Rubes is a sort of travel-guide superstar in the Czech Republic and his show Honest Guide attracts amazing interest due to its speed, flow, and practical value. So, it is not surprising we give him a chance to present you Bratislava, let us look at how he describes the capital of his brothers - as he says himself. Note: Even such an expert like Janek makes a mistake and so, we apologize for his faux pas when he claims that halusky (typical Slovakian gnocchi with traditional sheep cheese brynza) are served with goat cheese. We hope you can overcome this little scandal and enjoy watching his video.
