Best of Bratislava

After living in Vienna for almost 1 year I finally made it to a stunning city nearby – Bratislava. It was actually a very spontaneous idea and I was there just for one afternoon. This post sums up my favorite spots of the small yet interesting city.

Have lunch at “The Urban House”/ This café, bar and restaurant is the perfect hipster hangout place. The furniture looks industrial and retro, the food tastes great and the people are friendly and open-minded. The atmosphere is truly amazing and it’s just the right place for a quick break. I recommend tasting the lavender lemonade and hummus! 

Adress: Laurinská 213/14, 811 01 Bratislava (10 minutes walk from the main bus station)

Visit Nedbalka gallery/ Found this museum only by accident while walking around the  backstreets of Bratislava and I was truly amazed by the permanent and current exhibitions showing paintings as well as sculptures and graphics by modern Slovak artists. Many of the artworks could be associated with modern masters like Picasso (Cubism), Matisse (Fauvism), Dalí (Surrealism) and Impressionists like Monet or Cézanne. 

The building itself impressed me as well, the construction kinda reminded me of the Guggenheim museum in New York.

The Nedbalka Gallery seeks to collect, process and present works of late 19th, 20th and early 21st century Slovak fine art in a progressive and systematic way. Click here for more information. 

Adress: Nedbalova 459/17, 811 01 Bratislava

Stroll through the historic center/ Bratislava is a small yet really lovely city and while a walk around the town you will find a lot of cafés, shops and palaces. If you’re staying in Vienna for some weeks you should definitely book the 1-hour bus ride to the Slovak capital. I enjoyed the day-trip and I hope you enjoyed my photos!
