Bratislava-more than just a day trip from Vienna

(Last Updated On: 03/08/2019)

Even if I’ve never been a big fan of the city I’d had a big sentiment for Bratislava. That’s where I randomly ended up on my first solo trip, a month before I turned 18. It was also the very first destination where I was all on my own, and managed just fine. I was visiting a friend in the nearby capital of Austria and went for a day trip from Vienna to Bratislava before heading back home to Poland. Since then I’ve returned to the city couple of times but always these were just quick, few hours stays on the way to some other destination in Slovakia. Yet I never really connected with the place, didn’t feel this kind of intriguing sparkle that make me fall for the cities.


Before we continue can I have few announcements, please?

Thank you! And now on to the post!


Bratislava old town

This has changed last June, when I was returning from my Interrail trip to Romania and Bulgaria. It was a hot Sunday, the weather was more than perfect and as the train was approaching Bratislava central station I could see the city that looked so inviting and nothing than I remembered from my previous visits! It just seemed that the capital of Slovakia has turned into another cool and hip Central European city. On that day I only focused on exploring the amazing Bratislava cafe scene but these few hours made me want to rediscover the city. I promised myself to come back there , to spend more time there, discover best things to do in Bratislava and to give it a proper chance. And so I did, only 3 months later.

Bratislava – a perfect day trip from Vienna or more?

I wasn’t the luckiest one with the weather this time. It was the weekend in the middle of September and as soon as I arrived on Friday evening it started raining. The next day was all grey and gloomy but it didn’t stop me from enjoying the city. The majority of people visit Bratislava as the day trip from Vienna, giving it just a brief look and focusing only on the major attractions of the Old Town. And while it’s really lovely, with cobbled narrow streets and the castle towering above the city, most of the tourists are disappointed with Bratislava. True, the capital of Slovakia might be not as amazing as Vienna, Prague, Budapest or even nearby Brno (one of the 52 places to go in 2016 by New York Times) or not as cool as Kosice – second biggest city in Slovakia and 2013 European Capital of Culture – but it definitely has its moments and you only need to give Bratislava a chance and let the city surprise you!

The Old Town in Bratislava is really small but oh so charming! The maze of lanes, the beautiful architecture typical for Central Europe, the numerous cafes, restaurants and quirky sculptures. That’s also where most of the people visiting Bratislava as a day trip from Vienna start and end their encounter with the city, without venturing any further. That might be the biggest mistake one can do in Bratislava! Admiring the fine houses, palaces and churches or strolling the lanes and getting lost in them might be a big pleasure but that’s not all the city has to offer! I really liked the Old Town in Bratislava, not only it’s picture-perfect but also has some great hidden cool spots like great cafes, Stara Trznica or Galeria Nedbalka. But while I didn’t really feel any vibe there it took me just few steps further, beyond the Old Town to see the real face of Bratislava. And I enjoyed it so much more!

The center of Bratislava is a peculiar mix of architecture. Modernist town houses stand next to the Soviet blocks, modern buildings neighbor with those remembering Austrian-Hungarian Empire. Few streets seem to be forgotten but at the same time they feel the most authentic. And in the middle of that a structure like from a fairy tale – Blue Church – can be found. It’s really hard to define Bratislava, the city is a little bit of everything and that blend makes it so special. While the Old Town was dominated by the tourists, beyond it I’ve seen only locals. The life seemed to go slow there (could be the weekend or could be the fact that Bratislava is not such a big city, barely over 400.000 inhabitants), no one rushed and people just seemed to be happy there. I think that was the crucial point that made me change my perception of the city.

Even if I’ve spent the whole weekend in Bratislava I still feel like I haven’t seen and experienced all I should. I didn’t go to the other side of Danube river, to Petrzalka – one of the largest borough in Europe. I didn’t go to Slavin – a Soviet memorial. I didn’t have a chance to enjoy the local wine and explore the surroundings of Bratislava (including Devin castle). But that all means I need to return there as there’s still plenty to see and do for me. It took me some 7 visits to Bratislava to finally notice the real face of the city and now I just want to experience more and more of it. Don’t make my mistake, give Bratislava a proper chance right away and don’t visit it only as a day trip from Vienna!

And here is a little cheat sheet when you visit Bratislava!

What to see and do in Bratislava

  • Explore the Old Town with St. Martin’s Cathedral, the Town Hall, the Slovak National Theatre and Primatial Palace
  • Hike up to the castle
  • Wander aimlessly around the cute charming streets – some of the most picturesque are Michalska, Biela, Kapitulska or Panska
  • Admire the beautiful blue church – St. Elizabeth’s
  • Relax in the park behind Grassalkovich Palace – a home to Slovakia’s President
  • Look around for quirky sculptures like Cumil
  • Enjoy the Danube riverside with the UFO bridge
  • Track down the Soviet architecture, with world’s largest post office and the gem of brutalism architecture – Slovak Radio Building
  • Chill out at one of the many great cafes
  • Just enjoy this great city

How to get to Bratislava

Bratislava airport is served by Ryanair among couple of other airlines, you can fly there from 20 destinations in 8 countries. Much bigger Vienna airport is located only 40kms away from the capital of Slovakia and is well connected with the city. There’re regular daily trains from Bratislava to Vienna (every hour), Prague (every 2 hours), Berlin (3 direct trains), Budapest (6 direct trains) and Warsaw (2 direct trains).

Where to stay in Bratislava

This time I’ve opted for something better than usual and stayed in 4* Lindner Hotel Gallery Central. And it was really good and comfortable, well worth its price (rooms start at 69€ – very decent price for this quality) and with some amazing views over the city. The hotel was located slightly away from the Old Town – for some it could be the downside, I found it a great opportunity to see some regular areas of Bratislava and observe how life goes by there. Also, there’s a big shopping center attached to Lindner Hotel so if you need to go for a shopping spree you’re in the very right place. For a quality weekend in Bratislava I can’t think of a better place to stay in! Check out the prices and details here (click!)

    I definitely agree that Bratislava deserves more than just a pass-thru to get to know the place. It really is a cool little place and one I have no problem going back to time after time. For some reason, I feel kind of at home there. Thanks for the shout and hope you’re enjoying Italia <3

    I must admit that I’ve only visited Bratislava on a day trip from Vienna – it was either than or not visit it at all (I’m not a fan of moving every day), but would be happy to return. I really enjoyed the charms of its old town, although it was 26th December (so many things were closed) and starting so snow, so wasn’t the best weather!

      Ja w tym roku już raczej siedzę na pupie w Warszawie, dopiero w styczniu znów w drogę, na początek na chwilę zobaczyć z kolei Kraków w zimowej odsłonie.

    I liked it but only because of the tour I did. The tour was amazing and took us through the Soviet past of the country! We did it from an old Skoda with Authentic Slovakia and can highly recommend it.

      wow, you really had a stunning weather there!! I also never was a fan of Bratislava but I’m definitely falling for it slowly and already am thinking of the next visit (I need to do the skywalk on UFO once it’s open!!) And I really like their airport for cheap flights :)

    I did not enjoy it at all. I had been to Kosice prior on your advice and loved it so that maybe why, but gar too many homeless in Bratislava for me.

      you’re right, you can definitely see homeless around in Bratislava but for me Budapest is the worst in that case. I’m glad you enjoyed Kosice :)

    I went to Bratislava in December 2 years ago and loved it . I did the day trip to Vienna instead! There is a great cafe Vienna style, by the statue of the old gentleman in the square. Also I liked the craft market (and sheep!) In the museum courtyard . Would like to go back one day but Prague next week
