Book Description

One of the great Baroque cities of central Europe, Bratislava sits at the strategic meeting point of three countries – Slovakia, Austria and Hungary. This city guide to Slovakia's hitherto almost unknown capital gives full details on where to stay and eat plus a whole range of outdoor activities including cycling, rafting and hiking. Explore the car-free center; soak up the buzz of sidewalk cafés and tree-lined squares or visit stunningly restored Baroque and Rococo buildings. Further afield, sample some of Slovakia's internationally recognised wine in the cellars along the Small Carpathian Wine Route. A relative newcomer to the tourist scene, Bratislava is still very much a peaceful and pleasant place to explore.
