We were fortunate enough to jump on one of Authentic Slovakia’s Post-Communist Bratislava Tours during our stop in the capital, and what an experience it was!
In traditional post-communist/capitalist fashion, our group of 8 were collected in retro Skoda cars. We of course opted to ride in the green 1992 VW 8-seater. What a machine!
From concrete housing estates, to the Soviet monument Slavin. We visited abandoned factories and tried all sorts of local food and drink at Trznica market.
The guys couldn’t have been more enthusiastic and given just the right amount of history and facts in a fun friendly way.
They’ve clearly put a lot of time and effort into creating great Bratislava Tours. Showing us the off-the-beaten-track places of the communist past, as well as more recent transformations in Bratislava.
Overall the 2 hour tour was an interesting trip into the locals lives of past and present, and we can’t recommend the team at Authentic Slovakia enough.
Luxury – Marrol’s Boutique Hotel – Without doubt the most highly regarded accommodation in the city. This old 5-star hotel is like an old European palace, fully equipped for maximum comfort it the most luxurious place you’ll find in the capital.
Mid-Budget – Austria Trend Hotel Bratislava – We spent two nights at Austria Trend Hotel and the location and service was perfect. Centrally located, just a few minutes from the Old Town, with great facilities and pleasant staff.
Budget – Hostel Bratislava by Freddie – The cheapest you’ll find if you want to be central. Located close to the main train station and just a 15 minute walk to the Old Town. Free WIFI, laundry and a 24 hour reception are a bonus.
