Only an hour from Vienna, Bratislava is the ideal destination for a weekend getaway. Thus, my sister, mum, and I spent a weekend there and took the bus from Vienna to Bratislava on Saturday morning. Once there, we walked to the old town, where we first had breakfast at Urban Bistro and then went to Austria Trend Hotel Bratislava, where we stayed for the night.
After we checked in and had a short rest in our hotel room, we walked to the city again and saw most sights such as St. Martin’s Cathedral, Michael’s Gate, Old Town Hall, and the Primatial Palace along the way. Moreover, we visited Bratislava Castle, where you can enjoy a stunning view of the city and the Danube. If you have time, you can also go to the other side of the city across the Danube by walking over the Most SNP bridge, also known as the UFO bridge.
On our second day, we had breakfast at the hotel and then got ready to see the rest of the sights across the city. We still had some time left before going back to Vienna, so we went to the Aupark shopping center, which is easily reachable by bus from the city center. Later, we headed to the hotel to grab our luggage and then took a taxi back to the bus terminal to get back to Vienna. Although we only spent two days in Bratislava, I had a great time with my mum and sister and enjoyed the weekend to the fullest.
