Overview

One of the great Baroque cities of central Europe, Bratislava sits at the strategic meeting point of three countries – Slovakia, Austria and Hungary. This city guide to Slovakia’s hitherto almost unknown capital gives full details on where to stay and eat plus a whole range of outdoor activities including cycling, rafting and hiking. Explore the car-free center; soak up the buzz of sidewalk cafés and tree-lined squares or visit stunningly restored Baroque and Rococo buildings. Further afield, sample some of Slovakia's internationally recognised wine in the cellars along the Small Carpathian Wine Route. A relative newcomer to the tourist scene, Bratislava is still very much a peaceful and pleasant place to explore.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“The pocket book size guide makes you want to pack your bags and go to discover what this long neglected town has to offer… she has compiled a concise and fair overview of the town’s history, sights, and practicalities such as accommodation or best beers, giving insights about certain cafes, restaurants, buildings and people.”The Budapest Sun, Feb 06“I’ve never been to Bratislava and, as far as I’m aware, neither have any of my travelling friends. And that’s why I love this book-it’s made me want to go there…this thorough, enticing and wonderfully relevant little pocket-sized guide suggests a historic city with the appeal of Budapest on a smaller, cheaper scale. “Real Travel, Apr 06

CINEMATIC SETTINGSRecently, while forced to watch The Peacemaker (1997), in which George Clooney saves New York from a nuclear explosion and some stereotypical Serb nationalists, I suddenly thought the car chase scene looked familiar. Gorgeous George and Nicole Kidman were smashing up cars belonging to sinister east European thugs right in the middle of Hviezdoslavovo námestie. Recently, the cavernous cellars at Cerveny Kamen Castle had some of its interior décor rearranged for a British film about Frankenstein. Ironically, Hostel (2005), the lowbudget, low-brow slasher movie that caused such upset with its portrayal of the Slovaks as blood-thirsty, sex-mad maniacs preying on innocent little American backpackers was not filmed in Slovakia. However, Hostel II (2007), Eli Roth's adolescent sequel, allegedly filmed some scenes in Slovakia and gave a few minor roles to Slovak actors.
