The capital of Slovakia with its bountiful nature, quirky art offering, and rich history is a true underrated pearl of Eastern Europe.
Bratislava has some fantastic pubs and hearty food at affordable prices so it is no surprise that this city is proving increasingly popular as a group weekend break, especially with stag parties.
However with so much great history and architecture, it has a lot more to offer. The Blue Church, magnificent Bratislava Castle, and St Martin's Cathedral are three of the most impressive structures, while the Hlavné nám main square is a fascinating place to explore. If you're looking to escape the busy city you can venture out into the beautiful countryside, visit the Small Carpathian mountains, or head along the banks of the Danube where you'll find some beauty spots.
A beautiful city set in gorgeous surroundings, Bratislava is one to add to your list.
