Hviezdoslavovo námestie 188/6, 811 02 Bratislava, Slovakia
Located in a square named after him, he was a Slovak poet, dramatist, translator and for a short time member of the Czechoslovak parliament. The square is a beautiful walk as you make your way to the National Theater.
Michalská 390/22, 811 03 Bratislava, Slovakia
This gate opening once stood as part of a wall surrounding the city of Bratislava (it was a much smaller city of course). Today it's just a lovely piece of historic architecture as you walk through Old Bratislava. My fiance told me that you should...
Rudnayovo námestie 1, 811 01 Bratislava-Staré Mesto, Slovakia
Standing in Bratislava since 1452, the cathedral is a historic centerpiece of Bratislava and of Eastern Europe. During the Ottoman Empire days when Hungary was conquered, St. Martin's Cathedral became the coronation church for Hungarian kings.
Počúvadlianske jazero, 969 01 Banská Štiavnica, Slovakia
This restaurant was called "Koliba". Despite that this name is on the building, the term "Koliba" is actually a general term for wood building restaurants like this in the hills where traditional Slovak food is served.
Na Slavíne, Bratislava, Slovakia
A rather interesting tribute not only to soldiers who fought the Nazis in WWII, but also a bit of a tribute to Communism with it's strong symbolism, stars, and menacing vibe. Surrounded by a beautiful garden and some rather affluent neighbors,...
Hviezdoslavovo námestie 132/1, 811 02 Bratislava, Slovakia
A cultural centerpiece of Bratislava. You might have seen this building in a few movies, although the "scenes" were meant to be cities like Vienna. Regardless, it's a beautiful building with loads of history behind it that's still in use today...
Muránská, 841 10 Devín, Slovakia
One of the most interesting aspects of Slovakia are the number of castles found all over the country. From dark ages to the almost modern time, it's a wonderful trip for anyone interested in seeing castles. Devín was the first, and it's stood the...
Rajčianska 5091/38, 821 07 Bratislava, Slovakia
A relic of their Communist past, Paneláks would be more comparable to project homes found in many major US cities, only they're not filled with crime problems. In the last ten years, Bratislava has been working to turn these old buildings into...
Michalská 581/3, 811 01 Bratislava, Slovakia
One of the first spots I ate at in old Bratislava was this gem of an eatery hidden underground. It was very charming and the food was delicious. I recommend either the liver dumpling soup or the Slovak national dish, Halusky.
Rybárska brána 217/1, 811 01 Bratislava, Slovakia
Someone else posted a photo of a street performer imitating this iconic figure in Slovak folklore. Peeping Tom is as he's named. A mischievous sewer worker who sneaked peeks under the dresses of unsuspecting women.
