Slovakian capital Bratislava is a tourist destination for holidaying, relaxing and rejuvenating
Bratislava, the capital of Slovakia is among the smaller capitals of Europe. Although Bratislava has a laid-back life, it is a good tourist attraction because of being uniquely situated on both banks of the Danube river and the left bank of the Morava river. Many tourists and visitors come from the bordering nations of Austria and Hungary by road, air and river.

"Bratislava is considered to be Europe's most relaxed capital, because everything is in close vicinity, reachable within few minutes by transport and within a few hours by walking. Even other bordering nations' capital cities are quite close such as Vienna and Budapest even reachable also by a boat on the river Danube," inform my kin who are now visiting Bratislava.

They add that the city has an old-town charm with all kinds of restaurants, traditional pubs, music shows ranging from jazz to opera, typical buildings, gardens and parks; stylish people with a great river as a backdrop make Bratislava a perfect holiday destination. They have found it to be a splendid place for holidaying.

The place is interesting since its history is influenced by people of different nations and religions. Being the capital city, it is the political, cultural and economic centre of the country which is counted as the third richest region of the European Union.

Most historical buildings are located in the old town such as Town Hall Complex, City Museum and Michael's Gate. Another prominent structure in the city is Bratislava Castle which was constructed around the 10th century in Theresian style to function as the erstwhile royal seat.

Another charm is that Bratislava has forests close to the city centre along with parks and lakes for some adventure activities. Both natural and man-made lakes exist, most of which are used for recreation now. Slovak National Theatre is housed in two buildings for opera, ballet and drama shows. There are also smaller theatres such as the Bratislava Puppet Theatre.

Most tourists now visit the UFO observation tower at the SNP Bridge, which works as a sightseeing tower in a shape of a UFO with a restaurant which provides an amazing view of the city, river, hills and forests.

Most interesting is the motorway system that provides direct access to neighbouring countries such the Czech Republic and Hungary along with other points in Slovakia. The latest motorway between Bratislava and Vienna has also become operational.
