Bratislava may be one of the smallest capital cities of Europe, but with a population of over half a million, it's still a significant metropolis, and the largest city in Slovakia. Bisected by the River Danube, it's also the only national capital that borders two different countries - Austria and Hungary.
Bratislava’s position in central Europe means it has seen plenty of different rulers come and go. Founded by Celts, it was occupied by Romans and Slavs before becoming part of the kingdom of Hungary in the 10th century. Due to Ottoman conquest of much of Hungary in the 16th century, Bratislava - called Pressburg at that time - was made the capital of Hungary and part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. The city flourished in the 18th century under Queen Maria Teresa. Mozart, Haydn, and Beethoven were all frequent visitors to the city during this period.
Following World War I, Pressburg was made part of the new nation of Czechoslovakia, despite its high German-speaking population. In 1919, the city was renamed Bratislava.
During World War II, the city was occupied by the Nazis. At the end of the war, the city and the country fell under Soviet influence until the Velvet Revolution of 1989. This was then followed by the so-called Velvet Divorce of 1993 which saw Slovakia separate from the Czech Republic.
Bratislava is a city with a complicated history. All these successive waves of conquest and liberation have left it with unique culture and architecture. Additionally, Bratislava is a very affordable place to visit, especially compared with nearby Vienna and Prague. As a result, recent years have seen its popularity with tourists grow steadily.
Take in the view at the Slavin War Memorial. Built by the Russians to commemorate Soviet troops who fell liberating Bratislava from the Nazis, this striking Communist-era monument is a testament to the changing fortunes of the city. It's also the best place to get a view of Bratislava, and makes for some stunning photos.
Dive into Bratislava's turbulent history at Bratislava Castle. Looming above the Danube River, this castle was once the home of the Hungarian crown jewels. Declining importance saw the castle fall into ruins in the 19th century, but restoration work began in 1957 to restore it to its former glory. An on-site museum explains more of the dramatic history of this fortification.
Take a walk through the historic heart of town. Bratislava’s old town is extremely walkable, and the charming cobblestone streets make it a fantastic place to explore. An abundance of cafés and bars will keep you refreshed while you check out fountains, palaces, quirky statues, and other attractions.
Admire Soviet architecture at the SNP Bridge. Opened in 1972, this bridge is supported by a single pylon topped with a strange, UFO-like structure. An observation deck and restaurant inside the UFO let you admire Bratislava from this unique vantage point.
Take a sunset cruise to see the city transition from day to night. These atmospheric cruises will point out many of Bratislava's most important monuments and allow you to relax on the calm waters of this historically significant river.
Bordering two countries, Bratislava is easy to reach. The nearest major airport is in Vienna, and buses can reach the city from Vienna in approximately one hour.
Bratislava's central train station is around half a mile from the center of the old town and is easily reached on foot. From here, trains connect to other cities throughout Slovakia and central Europe, including Vienna, Prague, and Budapest.
Bratislava's bus and tram network can get you around the city easily. Tickets must be purchased before you get on the vehicle at a ticket machine or newspaper kiosk, or buy a ticket via text on your mobile phone.
The historic heart of Bratislava is what most interests tourists and its small size makes it very walkable. Often, on foot is the best way to experience Bratislava's unique charm. You can soak up the lively vibe of this growing city and stop anywhere that catches your eye. However, you don't want to be carrying more luggage than you need to. Drop off your possessions at a Bounce luggage storage in Bratislava so you can explore at your leisure.
Devin Castle: History fans will love the atmospheric ruins of Devin Castle, just outside the city. The number 29 bus will bring you to the castle and the park it sits in, but for a more elegant mode of transport, you could also take a boat from the city. Partially destroyed by Napoleon's troops, the castle is a fantastic place for photos and an easy way to enjoy the Slovakian countryside. Note that the castle sits on a steep hill, so large bags are recommended. Drop them off at a Bratislava luggage storage shop before you visit to make your trip easier.
Cunovo Water Sports Centre: Take part in exciting aquatic sports at Cunovo water sports complex. Just outside the city, you can raft, kayak, jetski, or river surf thanks to an artificial wave machine. There are also land-based activities such as soccer, beach volleyball, and paintball, so it's a great place to get some exercise. Drop off your bags at a luggage storage location in Bratislava first, so you won't have to worry about your belongings while you're having fun.
Vienna: Take a day trip to Vienna. This ancient city was the capital of the Austro-Hungarian Empire for centuries, and has had a huge impact on world history. Home to some of Europe's best art galleries, museums, and opera houses, Vienna is an architectural jewel and a classical music lover's dream. The Austrian capital is easily reached from Bratislava, and the two very different cities combine to make an excellent vacation.

This was my first time using this service and it worked seamlessly. I had no problems at all dropping my bag off at NYC Racquet Sports and it was just as easy picking it up. This location is a couple blocks from Penn Station, so it was perfect for exploring Manhattan for several hours before catching the train to Newark Airport for a late night flight. Will definitely use this service on future trips!
Really excellent service, right around the corner from A/C/E trains at Penn Station in New York. Popular and busy restaurant, too — but no one kept me waiting to drop off or pick up a bag.
This place is awesome, it’s near Macy’s and other souvenir shops, nearby food outlets too and near the Penn station in New York. This is the best place to leave your luggage for last minute shopping before you head to the airport via Penn station. Plus the Employees are very courteous and kind
