BRATISLAVA WITH ONEWORLD TRAVEL

Bratislava is the capital city of Slovakia. As a result of the rich history of Slovakian rule, Bratislava encompasses a variety of cultures, producing its own unique feel. The city is a mosaic of illustrious history: a medieval and Gothic old town, baroque palaces commissioned by Hungarian nobles, and the crowning castle, rebuilt to Renaissance finery.

The nucleus for Bratislava's history, festivals and chic cafe culture is Hlavné námestie (the main square). There's architectural excellence in almost every direction, notably the Stará Radnica (Old Town Hall), a complex of attractive 14th and 15th-century Gothic buildings, and Palugyayov Palác, a former palace. The centre features Roland’s fountain, one of the city’s most important landmarks, with many legends focussed upon the statue. There are many tours exploring the centre itself, particularly focussed on wine. Although Slovak wine is not a major export itself, the city prides itself on it, being in the middle of the fine wine producing districts.

Located a few miles west of Bratislava, Devín Castle ranks among the most important archaeological sites in Central Europe. Located at the banks of the Danube, where once the Danube and Amber Roads intersected, there are stunning views of the rivers - and on a clear day you can even see Vienna! Archaeological research proves the area was settled about 7000 years ago, providing a rich history to explore. There is a museum on site to show the history, particularly focussing on the fall of communism. Also, the castle was featured on popular TV series, Game of Thrones.

One of the most romantic modern art museums in Europe - the Danubiana Meulensteen Art Museum - is located just outside of Bratislava. Its unique location bordering on three countries, and sensitive integration with the surrounding nature and the River Danube provide visitors extraordinary views of exhibited artworks and of the flora and fauna unique to the peninsula of art in every season of the year. The adjoining sculpture park features the works of a number of artists, attracting thousands of Slovak and foreign visitors as well as royal visits and leading political, social and above all cultural figures.

From the sculpture park, a magnificent view of Bratislava and the mighty Danube offer unforgettable experiences at sunset.
