And finally on our list is Bratislava
, the capital of Slovakia
, which is set along the Danube River near the borders of Austria and Hungary. There are numerous scenic drives in and around Slovakia, including near ski resort Pezinska Baba. The mountain pass leads up to the ski slopes at an altitude of 595m. The road is a popular venue for thrillseekers, with its famous mountain speed runs.
For a gentler pace, embark on the relaxing drive from Bratislava to the Danubiana Meulensteen Art Museum and partake in a boat trip along the romantic River Danube, where the banks are rich in culture, medieval monasteries, impressive cities, and natural vineyards.
Bratislava has a fascinating mix of modern and old architecture, relics, fairytale palaces, green natural areas, and fantastic food. Don't miss the top sites and places of interest including Bratislava Castle, St Martin's Cathedral, and retail complex EUROVEA. Meanwhile, complete your sightseeing at the UFO observation deck and restaurant which apparently "floats" on the pillar of the SNP Bridge. This offers a magnificent dining experience, alongside a panoramic view of Bratislava.
