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.
