Bratislava Part 1.

As I promised I am showing you pics taken from my trip to Bratislava. Bratislava is the capital city of Slovakia. The history of the city, long known by the German name Pre├čburg, has been strongly influenced by people of different nations and religions. The city was the capital of the Kingdom of Hungary, a part of the larger Habsburg Monarchy territories, from 1536 to 1783, and has been home to many Slovak, Hungarian, and German historical figures.

Most of the old buildings are concentrated in the old town part of the city. You can walk around admire historical buildings from roomy pedestrianised Bratislava’s streets (the amount of people visiting Bratislava is still much more less than in other capital cities), or if you are not scared of highs you can enjoy the view from St Michael’s Gate or the Old Town Hall. Visiting museums (there are many, including the tiny but interesting Clock Museum), having a lunch in one of the trendy restaurant or having amazing ice cream or coffee on Hviezdloslav Square it is no problem.

For those who wish to shop, there is a lovely traditional market near the main square of the old town, and several shops offering local crafts, which make the perfect gifts. There is also specialist chocolate shops with a tremendous range, and a designer watch shop with a truly amazing collection. There is also a modern shopping mall on the other side of the Danube where you can buy everything you could possibly want, and wile away several hours.

Bratislava has plenty of attractions to offers for guests whose want to relax in lovely city in middle Europe
