Uncovering the best sites of Bratislava

What to do in Bratislava Slovakia

Bratislava is one of those cities where the history is rich and colorful, which is why we love exploring it every time we end up there, even if it’s just for a few days.

People occupied the area 15 to 25 million years ago, there are traces of Roman remains, and it wasn’t until the 5th and 6th centuries that the Slavs first made their presence. From the 13th to the mid-16th century, Bratislava was under Hungarian rule until 1918, when it became part of the Habsburg Monarchy. However, a few decades later after World War II, when Czechoslovakia broke up into the Czech Republic and Slovakia, Bratislava was declared the capital of Slovakia while still being a communist nation until 1993. It was during communism and some parts of WWII that large parts of the city were destroyed, yet once the nation became completely independent, it was able to rebuild itself into the charming destination it is today.

For those of you who are planning a getaway to Bratislava, here are some sites and places we recommend you add to your itinerary.
