Bratislava city guide
The proximity of Bratislava to Vienna makes it so that the Slovakian capital is often visited on a day trip from the Austrian capital. Often tourists discard staying in Bratislava due to thinking that there is not as much to do as in other capitals. They are wrong.
Bratislava does not have as many museums or points of interest as neighboring Vienna, and perhaps is not as busy as other cities, yet Bratislava is a vibrant city filled with both Medieval and Gothic history and numerous palaces and churches.
Up until the 20th century, Bratislava was called Pressburg and it had been a part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire for over 1000 years. After the dissolution of the empire and the end of the Slovakian repression, the city was renamed to Bratislava, a callback to the city’s name before it had been a part of Austro-Hungary, Braslav.
Perhaps one entire week is a little too much time to spend in the Slovakian capital if you are planning on packing every single day with activities, but Bratislava is totally worth it if you intend on staying for 1 to 3 nights.
The city’s position near the Danube also offers several river cruises and other nature-related activities.
Bratislava is definitely a city that should stay on your radar and that you should not overlook when planning your trip to Eastern and Central Europe.
What to visit in Bratislava
The Bratislava Castle is probably the most famous building in Bratislava. This gigantic building is built on a site which has been fortified for hundreds of years and was the seat of the Hungarian kings from the 1600 to the 1800s. The National Museum is located inside the castle and houses several historical artifacts.
Slavin War Memorial
The Slavín War Memorial is a monument to the Soviet troops killed in 1945 during the liberation of Bratislava. The memorial was unveiled in 1960 and stands in front of six graves that hold the remains of almost 7 000 Soviet soldiers. It is possible to climb to the top of the memorial for an unparalleled view of the city and its surroundings.
St. Martin’s Cathedral
This 15th century Gothic cathedral is located in the shadow of the Bratislava Castle. This cathedral was where the king of Hungary coronation took place and is filled with historical statues and paintings.
The Devin Castle is located a bit out of hand, but it is worth the trip. The ruins of this 5th century BC castle on the confluence of the Danube and the Morava are 10 kms away from the city center. The castle was active until Napoleon dealt it its final blow in the early 19th century. Now, it is the perfect scenic day trip for tourists in Bratislava.

What to visit in Karlovy Vary
One of its many spas
Since Karlovy Vary is the biggest spa city in the Czech Republic, there are plenty of bathhouses and spas available to the public. Choosing the best one is complicated, since they all offer similar services and prices. However, visitors are usually attracted to the Mill Colonnade, mainly due to its architecture. The Hot Spring Colonnade and the Market Colonnade are two other famous bathhouses and worth a visit. Regardless, you probably will love whichever spa you end up visiting, since they are all very good.
The Market Colonnade (Tržní kolonáda) is a white, wooden structure in the center of the town on the left bank of the Teplá river. It was created by the Austrian architects Ferdinand Fellner and Hermann Helmer in the Swiss chalet style and opened to the public in 1883.
The Mill Colonnade (Mlýnská kolonáda) is the largest of all colonnades in the town. It is located in the spa center on Mlýnské Nábřeží Street. This colonnade is the work of the famous Czech architect Josef Zítek, who built it in the Neoclassical style. It was opened in 1881. The Mill Colonnade houses the seeps of five mineral springs.
The Castle Colonnade (Zámecká kolonáda) is located near Zámecký Vrch Street. It was designed by the Austrian architect Friedrich Ohmann in the Art Nouveau style and opened in 1912. Nowadays, it is only partially accessible to the general public, because in the early 21st century, the Castle Spa was established there and only guests may stay there. The arbour with the Upper Castle Spring (Horní zámecký pramen) is still open to the public.
The Park Colonnade (Sadová kolonáda) is located in Dvořák’s Park (Dvořákovy sady), next to Zahradní Street. This is another colonnade designed by Ferdinand Fellner and Hermann Helmer. It was opened in 1881 and it houses the seep of Snake Spring (Hadí pramen).
The Hot Spring Colonnade (Vřídelní kolonáda) is located in the spa center, next to Divadelní Square (Divadelní náměstí). It houses the most spectacular of the town’s geysers: Hot Spring (Pramen Vřídlo). Its water has a temperature of 72 °C ( 161.6 °F) and the jet reaches a height of approx. 12 m (39 ft). Around 2,000 liters (528 gallons) of mineral water are gushed every minute. The water is partially diverted to several smaller fountains with lower temperatures, suitable for drinking. The colonnade is the work of Jaroslav Otruba (he is also known for designing stations of the Prague Metro) and was completed in 1975. The current construction replaced an earlier cast-iron structure designed by the aforementioned Ferdinand Fellner and Hermann Helmer.
Diana Lookout Tower
The Diana Lookout Tower stands 35-meters tall and offers an excellent view of the city and its surroundings. You will need to climb 150 steps to get to the top of the tower, but the view is definitely worth it.
