Bratislava Main Selling Points

Bratislava's history

1. Bratislava's history

Over more than 2,000 years of history, Bratislava has came under Celtic, Roman, Germanic and Slavic rule, and for more than two centuries it was Hungary’s royal capital and coronation city. All these influences – and more – have left their mark on the modern Slovak capital. Communist rule also changed the face of the city, and today Baroque architecture rubs shoulders with the sometimes jarring relics of the post-war Communist regime.

2. Gastronomy

The local gastronomic tradition is a cosmopolitan blend of Slovak, Hungarian, Moravian and Viennese cuisines, complemented by excellent Slovak wines. The Old Town boasts a growing number of top-quality restaurants serving international and local cuisine. In the summer, cafés, bars and restaurants spill out into the streets and squares.

3. It’s a compact and friendly city

Bratislava’s Old Town is extraordinarily “user friendly”. Its Central European charm, lively but laid-back atmosphere, compact size and dozens of outdoor cafés and restaurants make it an ideal destination for weekend getaways.

4. City of incentive tourism

Bratislava can be reached easily via two international airports, frequent IC train connections, and by motorway. Numerous top-class hotels, gourmet restaurants and other quality suppliers guarantee the success of an incentive event organized here.
