You say Slovenia, I say Slovakia
Submitted by pablo on 2007-07-18 02:03:06 (via www.travellady.com)
No matter how exciting trips are, sometimes one feels tired. Locations for vacations from vacations are hard to find, but for those who like surprises Bratislava is the place to go. Its edifices, cobblestone streets and restaurants make it a diamond of the central European rough, especially during Christmas. A day-trip is enough to feel enchanted.

It is true that on Christmas all the cities look fabulous, although I am sure Bratislava is worth paying a visit any time of the year.. Does it snow there during winter?

Well, Bratislava is not any kind of diamond, I don't agree with that metaphore. But Bratislava is surely the best place for entertainment if you're a tourist.Experience yourself.Have a Nice Trip.

Hi,
many peoples think, that Slovakia is Slovenia. Its jaw. I agree, that this country can offer travellers many happy moments (for example travelling in transports in Bratislava is really shocking for me, you must try it sometimes..:-D)
Slovak people are hearty, Slovak girl are so beatiful, I thing girls in our country are the best! We love zhem. Our High Tatras and spas are so great. I like our country..

Have a nice trip

Hello. My name is Marian and I come from Slovakia. First of all I would like to point out one, not very precise sightseeing point (being a "castle-lover"). The Devin Castle that was mentioned in the article was probably the Bratislava Castle, for it would take the traveller much more time to get from the center to the Devin castle and back :) Despite of this I like the whole article. I personally prefer the old - historical center, but do not like Bratislava at all - being a worker there I would say that it is full of dirt. I would recommend all the travellers to visit High Tatras and other much more beautiful towns alike Kremnica or Banska Stiavnica. The whole country is very beautiful and I would never change it for any in the world for it´s peacefull places around any of the castles and castle ruins (which I adore, but unfortunately our management of state hardly finds the financial resources for their reconstruction that´s make my heart bleed )...Come and pay a visit to them... ;)

Hi everyone. A few other points I have to mentioned as a inhabitant of Bratislava. If you arrived in the main train station at midnight, you hardly ever find anyone, not even a person speaking english. It's not that busy place during night...:)
But in general, make sure, you'll meet lots of citizens who'll understand you and help you out.
Our capital is a small city, but nice (not talking about all areas - which is obvious & similar in other capitals). It definitely is worth it to come and see...
During the past years, it's been improving quite fast, renewing the old-town, building new houses, shopping molls, business centres, etc.
It's gradually becoming a very modern city with plenty of foreign investments, workers from western Europe or US who find this city also good for living. Even if Bratislava is the most expensive town in Slovakia, it is still far cheap comparing to Vienna, Praque or other bigger cities in the central Europe.
It is nice to see the city centre in any season. E.g. this weekend begins the "Xmas fair" with plenty of booths of any kind of traditional food, gifts, souvenirs and other nice stuff. It will last till Christmas holiday, I guess. Of course, one can prefer the lovely nature we have in Slovakia rather than see the downtown. Well, it's not that far to travel to High Tatras or Liptov. Once you've been there, you'd love it! Enjoy! ;)
