Take a dreamy trip down the Danube and arrive in riverside Bratislava in true comfort. With its easily navigable Old Town, you can pass a pleasant day strolling past pastel-coloured buildings or visiting the Castle. Challenge the kids to find the quirky statues dotted throughout the city or sample wine from nearby vineyards. A few hours drive to the east of Bratislava, you’ll find the tallest range in the Carpathian Mountains -- The High Tatras. In summer, you can hike well-marked trails, swim in clear water lakes, or simply relax away from the hustle and bustle of modern life. When the snow falls, The High Tatras are home to some excellent skiing and snowboarding. After an active day, rest your weary limbs at one of Bratislava’s fabulous spas. Relax in a steam-filled sauna or jacuzzi before dinner. When you’re ready, head out on the town to try some of the country’s best restaurants and cocktail bars.
