Bratislava, which has been unfairly dubbed "Europe's dullest capital city," is actually quite charming. In many ways, it reminded us of the highly-touted city of Dubrovik with its pedestrianized streets, friendly cafes, and delicious local cuisine. Bratislava is easily accessible from Vienna - a 75-minute cataraman ride will take you from Vienna City Centre to Bratislava Old Town. We spent a half day in Bratislava taking in the many sights with the help of a wonderful tour guide named Zuzana Bianchi. Ms. Bianchi speaks fluent English (as well as German) and is exceedingly knowledgeable about Bratislava's history and tourist sights. We enjoyed her services through an organized tour, but she can be hired on a free-lance basis via email: email@example.com or by telephone: 00421.904.850.699 (mobile).
