Slovakia's capital, Bratislava, attracts visitors for its natural beauty and rich culture, offering a plethora of landscapes, outdoor activities, historical monuments, and a stately old town.
Get a sense of the local culture at Danubiana Meulensteen Art Museum and Franciscan Church and Monastery. You'll discover tucked-away gems like Bratislava City Museum (Mestske Muzeum) and Sigismund Gate. And it doesn't end there: explore the world behind art at Nedbalka Gallery, have some family-friendly fun at Space World, examine the collection at Stm Muzeum Dopravy, and take in the views from Stary most.
