Bratislava is very conveniently located on the river Danube, which just happens to be one of the biggest and most famous rivers in Europe! It is also only 60km away from Vienna and not very far from Hungary either.

The old town is wonderfully preserved and boasts with many baroque buildings. Bratislava just wouldn’t be a Central European capital without a castle on the hill. Therefore the Bratislava castle is a real must-see. Among other important castles you must visit there is also Devin, which basically consists of ancient ruins overseeing Danube river.

Dinners in Bratislava are best spent in the TV tower restaurant from where you get an exquisite view on the city. For a more gourmet experience, try Kogo, a modern and elegant restaurant with a lovely summer terrace.

For holding a conference or other types of events in Bratislava, you can choose from many incredible venues, starting with Danubiana Meulensteen Art Museum right on the Danube river! For a luxurious experience try Red Stone Castle – nothing like a corporate event in a real castle, right? Finally, Incheba Fair Hall will perfectly suit larger types of events, while still retaining sophistication and good quality service.

Be sure you won’t be bored in this little town! A perfect way to do some sightseeing is by boarding a Bratislava – Vienna river cruise and see the city from the Danube. Treat yourself to a Small Carpathian Wine Tour to taste the best of Slovakian wines and spend the day in the nature. A small town Modra in the Little Carpathian mountains is also worth visiting, mostly for its famous blue and white porcelain.
