The capital of Slovakia and a beautiful city straddling two sides of the Danube, Bratislava is a popular tourist destination in Europe that features plenty of attractions. Tourists often flock to the Old Town quarter, a historic area that dates back to several centuries. In this quarter, you can also find the magnificent Baroque Palaces, with their awe-inspiring architecture, as well as Mozart House, where Mozart performed for the Palffy clan when he was only six years old. Don't miss out on the chance to marvel at the Gothic Cathedral of St. Martin, the coronation church for the kings and queens of Hungary for three centuries.

As the capital of Slovakia, Bratislava naturally features many world-famous restaurants that serve the finest local specialties. Special mentions go to the Modrá Hviezda, a small restaurant in the Old Town quarter of the city. However, for the best local dishes, try the Bratislava Flagship.

The primary train station in Bratislava is the Bratislava-Petrzalka. Bus service also makes Bratislava accessible from many major cities in Eastern Europe. Flights go through the nearby M. R. Štefánik Airport, located just 5.1 miles away from the city.

Bochum is a city in the Rhine-Ruhr Metropolitan Region in western Germany. Like many of the cities in the Ruhr Valley, Bochum grew thanks to its industrious history, particularly via coal mining and steel manufacturing facilities.

To learn more about the industries that made Bochum, visit the German Mining Museum, the largest mining museum in the world. It displays the lasting effects mining had on the community, from its social and cultural impact to its economic and ecological consequences. You can't miss the green winding tower rising above the museum; this industrial structure was once part of a coal mine but now offers visitors panoramic views over the Ruhr.

For those who prefer the outdoors to the underground, visit the Ruhr University Bochum Botanical Garden. Opened in 1968, this garden has numerous greenhouses, each housing an impressive display of plants and shrubs from around the world. The Tierpark und Fossilium Bochum is another great outdoor activity, home to almost 4,000 animals and an impressive fossil collection.

Many ICE trains connect Bochum to the rest of Germany and Europe via the city's main railway station. Regional trains also depart and arrive frequently. Book a bus on Sindbad or FlixBus into Bochum for travel by road from various destinations around the continent.
