Travel Blogs from Bratislava
Today was an early start as we were to do a guided tour at 8:30 of Bratislava.
Bratislava is set picturesquely at the foot of the Carpathian Mountains and is the capital of Slovakia.
Bratislava is dominated by its massive square astle. On our tour we saw the Old Town, where we saw the beautiful St Martin's Cathedral, Michaels' Gate with its 15th century tower, the Main Square, aristocratic palaces, the Baroque Jesuit Church, ...

The weird thing about Timisoara (yes, the city in Romania – it’s not a typo) is that they open late and close early there. Good luck finding something open after 5 pm! I didn’t really notice if that was the case in Bratislava or not.
I end up at the Cathedral, which is the far side of the old town, and ...
