Travel Blogs from Bratislava
We had a busy two days in Bratislava and the whole time we were there the temperatures were climbing! You may have seen the weather for Europe at the moment, basically the red bit under the heat warning is where we are at the moment - and it is supposed to be hotter still in Budapest!
The train journey to get here was unbearable! Extremely …
... barley. We soon arrived in Bratislava which is the capital of Slovakia, it had a modern castle built in the 1950's on the hill with nice views over the river and to the part of the city that was built by the communists which is very bland and all the same. From there we headed though to the town square, on our way we saw the narrowest building which was a kebab shop it was 130cm wide and three stories high not ...
... to say we used the motorhome facilities. It was a Friday and the music went on untill 4am (thump thump thump, pause, pause, thump thump thump.), then the fireworks started (it must have been Stalin's birthday or something like.) Saturday night the same however at 4:30am it sounded more like small arms fire, there is a God!
We took the tram to the city, asked on the tram for the city centre ...

... truckin it! I grabbed a seat on the top deck, prime location really, for pictures and for maximum hair-blowing action. In a short while, the canal flowed into the real McCoy, the Danube herself. How cool! This river seems to have such important significance in history, linking some of the major capital cities of all time, Prague, Budapest, Vienna. And I was in the middle of it! Amazing!

TravelPod Member ReviewsApollo Hotel Bratislava
We stayed in July when it was very hot. The air conditioning system in this hotel is very noisy (like a building site!) I found it extremely difficult to sleep as it was so hot we had to have the air con on. The noise was not constant it would hum then rattle then every five minutes there would be a much louder noise for about 10 seconds that vibrated the room. Breakfast was satisfactory. They stopped refilling the hot dishes about 30mins before the end of the breakfast time so we missed out on some things. Wireless was good, location not so great, it is quite far from the centre of town.
