The capital city of Slovakia is located in the foothills of the Carpathian Mountains at the geographical centre of Europe. Bratislava straddles the River Danube, which neatly divides the city into two parts; the old town (Stare Mesto) and the new city. After four decades of Communist Party rule, which ended with the Velvet Revolution in 1989, Bratislava has undergone a gradual cultural renaissance, emerging as an eastern European hotspot.

The picture-postcard city boasts a charming Baroque Old Town, historic Gothic buildings, several universities, a wealth of museums and galleries, and a refreshing cosmopolitan atmosphere. The historic centre features delightful cobbled stoned roads, pedestrianised plazas, pastel 18th century rococo buildings and street cafés galore.

Vienna, Salzburg and the Danube

John from Totnes
5 stars
“We really enjoyed our holiday in Austria, fantastic scenery, the highlight our holiday was the day we did the Sound of Music and the Austrian Lake District, the local guide, Trudy was so good, we had music from the film played in the coach and many of us sung along.

Oberammergau and Danube Cruise

“Mostly very good. Marred by two things. Firstly overcrowded local trains in Germany apparently because of a special post-Covid cheap travel deal on German trains. Secondly, we didn't have our own tour manager throughout, as has been the case when we've used GRJ previously - we were left in the hands of two tour managers on the ship dealing with very large numbers of clients. We were well managed for the train journeys and Oberammergau trip.

“Excellent food and comfortable accommodation. GRJ Tour guide inexperienced and hopeless. A flexible approach would have enabled length of a particular day tour to be curtailed when constant heavy rain left groups wandering around with little shelter.

“Not impressed yet again . I have already rated the holiday and am awaiting a reply to another e mail. Holiday was great , wonderful, but wonder about some aspects of GRJ organisation .

More about Bratislava

Bratislava Castle, which overlooks the city, was once the centre of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. Built by King Sigismund in the 15th century, and again by Empress Maria Theresa in the 18th century, the castle was accidentally burnt down by its own garrison of drunk Austrian soldiers in 1811.

Today, the castle houses the fascinating Slovak National Museum. From the top of the Crown Tower, you can enjoy spectacular views of Bratislava, the Danube and the southern Carpathian Mountains.
