Compared to surrounding cities like Budapest, Vienna or Prague, Bratislava is not on the obvious city break list but highly worth a visit. In terms of scale, Bratislava is very small but that being said it still has plenty of charm. The Old Town is really special, especially at dusk. I recommend taking a walk pre dinner and stopping in one of the local wine bars or coffee shops lining the pedestrian streets. You won't be disappointed, I promise!

Next stop, Vienna
