Fly direct to Bratislava. On arrival make your own way to your hotel. (Instructions on how to reach your hotel using public transport will be provided. Alternatively, airport transfers can be pre-booked at a supplement.) Spend the rest of the day getting to know Bratislava.
Bratislava: A symbol of the city, Bratislava Castle commands a panoramic view of the city and the Danube from its hilltop position. Now mostly restored and open to the public it houses items from the Slovak National Museum and is also used by the Slovak parliament. Outside are beautiful ornamental gardens to relax and take in the views. If you’re feeling energetic, continue past the attractive hillside villas to the Soviet War Memorial at Slavin. Otherwise follow the quaint cobbled streets down to the traffic-free old town. Visit the historical main square Hlavne Namestie, where there is a modern statue of Napoleon’s Army soldier leaning over a bench.
Bratislava: The main market square is bustling with lively open-air restaurants and cafes is a good place to stop for a drink and watch the street musicians, or gaze at the colourful baroque architecture. The Town Hall is home to the City Museum and the Primatial Palace, where Napoleon signed the peace treaty, are popular stops on most Bratislava City Breaks. Once a major centre of Jewish education, Bratislava now has its own Museum of Jewish Culture to celebrate this heritage. For something more unusual, try the Museum of Clocks or the Pharmacy Museum. And not forgetting the Danube, within walking distance from the town centre are several cafes along the river bank to watch the huge Danube barges glide past. You can also take to the water with regular hydrofoil services to Vienna.
Check out of your hotel and, if time permits, enjoy a few final hours in Bratislava before making your own way to the airport for the return flight to the UK. Of course, if you feel you may wish to stay a little longer to explore this beautiful city, extra nights can be added to your holiday at a supplement.
