The keyboard is different from mine and I do not have accents or something like that, but I have already been in the city center and it is absolutely terrific. This evening there was a movie in the central square, but the whole center is absolutely great, much more than how I expected. Now I am at the hostel and I am going to sleep.
Great city

Yes, I have to 100% agree with you. It's a great city to walk around, and it surpassed my expectations of the city. I think I posted on this before, but what really impressed me was the blend of the old and the new in the city centre; very nice indeed. It's so, so cheap aswell!

You're not by any chance staying in the 'Downtown hostel', are you?

Bratislava is a (somewhat) undiscovered gem. I don't think I could spend a whole ton of time there, but I do enjoy it. It's becoming more and more known, so enjoy it before it becomes touristy like Prague did. Ick.

The thread title is exactly what I thought when I got there! The centre is simply stunning.

All of eastern europe is beautifull. Even the commy block apartment buildings are awe inspiring, in a weird way.  Yeah sure

I visited Bratislava in summer 2005 for one night.

It is definitely a nice city to walk around in. However, as SW733, it's not the kind of city that you can spend several days in. A day's visit is more than enough.

In fact, I think it makes a perfect day trip from Vienna.

I agree 100%. I was never before surprised so much from a city when I first went there last year.

A really nice place to be...

I went there in 2002 whilst I was backpacking all over Eastern europe. The ctiy centre was a nice surprise as well as the tower on the bridge...not to mention the great amounts of beautiful girls you see there...

Yeah thats what my friends and I did...well, it was more of an overnight trip, but we spent a week in Vienna and jumped the border for the night.

I've been to Bratislava before - back in 1995 when it was still pretty undiscovered and a bit shabby. I enjoyed it then too, but I think they've cleaned it up a lot since then.

But its always nice to go somewhere where you may have not expected too much and ended up pleasantly surprised. I found that with Brasov in Romania this summer. It was so much better than I expected. All it needs now is an airport so that everyone else can visit it  Wink
