Bratislava, Slovakia. Knowing this is a very small European capital city and not much time is needed to see “everything”, we wasted no time, got up uncomfortably early, met up with some friends and jumped straight into our rental car and undertook the long 3 and a half hour scenic drive to the High Tatras in Northern Slovakia. Being over 30 degrees in the city it was a welcome relief gaining some altitude and arriving in a much more comfortable temperature to start our hike to the glacier lakes in the mountains.
A very busy day trip had left us quite exhausted and the next morning we decided to take full advantage of the latest check out time we could get away with. We still managed to get around this quaint little city in a matter of a few leisurely hours. After seeing the Grassalkovich Palace and the castle on the hill, the best place to find yourself is the historic old town to finish things off. So as I said, not too much to get around in Bratislava but with the added road trip to the picturesque Tatras Mountains, turns out to be a great way of spending the weekend and seeing somewhere new. Oh. did i mention everything is very cheap.
