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.

Basel is bordered by France to the west and Germany to the east, with the river Rhine running directly through the city. This culture-centric destination is known for containing Switzerland's highest concentration of museums. With over 40 museums, roughly one per square kilometre, you're guaranteed to find at least one museum that fits your interests. Of course, it's got classic art museums like the Fine Arts Museum and the Jean Tinguely Museum, but you'll write home about the niche ones like Basel Paper Mill (a museum about paper and printing) and Toys Worlds Museum.

Basel's Old Town area will give you a taste of the city's history, with its cobblestoned streets and medieval churches, as well as several beautiful fountains. In the Marktplatz, or market square, check out the bold red City Hall, as well as even more museums, these ones devoted to Basel's history.

Basel is also home to Switzerland's oldest zoo, founded in 1874. Conveniently located in the heart of Basel, the zoo lets you get up close and personal with animals from the tiniest insects to the grandest elephants. Plus, you can learn more about the zoo's conservation projects.

Basel is well-situated for easy travel to other countries due to its proximity to France and Germany, as well as its transportation options. The world's only tri-national airport, EuroAirport Basel-Mulhouse-Freiburg, is only 4km from Basel. This unique airport is located on both French and Swiss territory but also serves travellers to nearby Freiburg, Germany. Basel also welcomes national and international train routes, and many European coach services stop in the city.
