People in Bratislava 
Bratislava, West Slovakia, Slovakia
Hi there, if You stay in Bratislava for the night, one of the best place is at Botanicka - Druzba students dormitory, its placed just by the river, and from the windows You may have great view at Danube!!! It's not far from the Old Town, and You can walk up there also by the riverside, what is taking about 25 minutes on foot to get to Novy Most with fantastic view point on the top of the bridge!!! If You chose the other way, with the buses you can get as well to Devin Castle, and Sandberg where are real dunes!!! What i can recomend you is definitely two things - walking up the Kamzik and tring the national food - bryndzowe haluszki (sheep cheese dumplings) in "Koliba" in Mlynska Dolina!!! Slovakian people are definitely crazy about meals, and even in MacDonalds you can find their fried cheese!!! And now watch out - in Slovakia you can buy leggaly Absint, the famous alkohol which was driving mad many poets in XIX century :D Of course You cannot miss Obchodna i Kapucinska, Kamenne Namestie (where is also Tesco haha), but if You plan make some shopping Billa is much better than Tesco for sure. From Hlavna Stanica - main train station, you can easily get to Tatra Mountains, the highest in all Carpathian Range, and getting couchette costs about 20 euro and if you leave at 9pm you will get to capital of the mountains at 6 in the morning!!! The same price in both ways this time is to Vienna, also by the ferries, which is so cool, traveling to Budapest is not bad, though not many hungarian people talk in english, lol If You need sports, then fabulous thing is going for the ice hockey, but if you need a high culture, try in Narodne Divadlo (theather - national opera house), i watched there russian "Eugeniusz Oniegin" and that was great! The best thing is to come up for Christmas Market, i still havent been in Dresden, but in Bratislava i saw even enchanted Bawarian people so it must be one of the best in Europe!!! If we talk about Osterich culture, then please go to Hlavne Namestie and visit Kaffee Mayer and try the best cakes they have!!! mmm... Someone said "Bratislava is fun, polite and small" and i mean it :-) P.S. Hey girls, in the beginning of the year and then after summer there are fabulous sales in shops, like Terranova and other big companies, and in compare to west european countries difference is really pretty big!

Bratislava, West Slovakia, Slovakia
Nobetter city in central-east Europe! It´s smaller than Prague and Warsaw, but is cuter and charming as well, with the good point that is not crowded by turists! Outside the city center, you can still see the soviet style which is really interesting. People is not religious! YEEEEYYY!!!!!!! Therefore they are really easy going! Lovely people for a lovely city in a lovely country!

Go with Slovak people to discotheques. Otherwise, you'll pay 3-4 times more than them. I loved the city, contrary to lots of people. You shouldn't stay there more than 2 days.

Bratislava, West Slovakia, Slovakia
great place to go any time of year, starting point of many interesting routes. if u re staying longer, u might take a trip to Vienna, a boat trip to Devin castle, at the meeting point of 2 beautiful rivers, or a bit further to Heinburg, in summer time horse races, loads of outdoor sports (skating, cycling) available at the river bank, all the lakes are ready to accomodate anyone who needs to cool down after 30 degrees summer temperatures, with many handy refreshment stalls, ice cream, cold drinks or local beer, which is really worth trying. In winter don t miss beautiful christmas markets with traditional fast food, live music and gluh wine, outdoor skating rank on the main square in front of the historical building of the national theatre.

Food in Bratislava 
Bratislava, West Slovakia, Slovakia
It has a nice but small Old Town. The rest of the city is a communist-era creation with prefabricated apartment buildings and factories. There are several CS and HC members here so there's no need to stay always at a hostel. Some of my favourite places for a night-out or drink are: 1. Slovak Pub, Smadny Mnich, Harley, Cirkus Barokk, Aligator, Maly Bajkal.

Much less touristy than Prague. In the summer, you can stay in great university dorms for really cheap and be right near the old town.

Nice quiet town. You don't need more than a day or two here. Check out the Slovak Pub for yummy local cuisine.
