Bratislava is really small town but with a lot of history. Will take you appx 2-3 days to visit all tourist points. Best part is Bratislava’s location, easy access to Wiena, you chose boat, train or bus/car but much cheaper to stay over night. Same...More

I knew that Bratislava itself was a small city, so didn't expect the Old Town to be particularly large. And wasn't surprised. However, it was nice enough for a walk around for a couple of hours. I'd have liked to have gone in the evening...More

Bratislava, while the capital of Slovakia, remains similar to many other small European cities and towns rising out of the isolation of the USSR communism era. The old town section is worth a visit if only to see how it has survived that period and...More

We stopped at this town from our river cruise. First we did about an hour and a half tour, then were on our own. You won't have a hard time finding something to buy here as there are a ton of touristy shops. Also plenty...More

Yes, it is within walking distance - probably a 10-15 min walk however you could probably catch one of the buses if you wish. We did walk it both ways - one way in the rain - and it was no problem.
