Bratislava - Post Report Question and Answers

What are some interesting/fun things to do in the area? Can you recommend any “hidden gems"?

Tons and tons of castles! Lots of stuff to do on the weekends - small festivals, drive to neighboring towns/villages, water parks, pools during the summer, ski slopes in the winter, hiking in the Tatras, hiking from Koliba (about 15 minutes/ish driving distance from the embassy), parks, beer gardens, wine cellars, bunkers, etc. - May 2021

Hiking, biking, dining out.... - Aug 2017

There are a lot of wine festivals in the neighboring villages which are fantastic. Despite being alcohol related, they are actually very family friendly and fun! Live music, street food, handicrafts, and rides for kids. - Jun 2017

Thermal Baths. Dunaska Streda, Velky Meder... - Feb 2017

See above! - Sep 2016

There are several good museums and art galleries in town. Local and national theaters are very active, as are the orchestra and the ballet. Vienna is less than an hour away by car, bus or train. Nice wineries are within a 20-minute drive, as are small lakes for swimming and boating. Danube River cruises are popular. Nearby castle ruins make good day trips. - Dec 2009

Too many to list - as above and you can add anything you would ever want to do out side. Biking is big - boating (all types) camping etc. - Apr 2010
