Bratislava – Night Scenes from Old Town Christmas Markets

Bratislava is a lovely and charming city. If you are fortunate enough to visit, you’ll very likely stay within the Old Town. The Old Town is full of restaurants, pubs, cafes, and different types of stores. It’s compact and easy to get around. Much of it is pedestrian, too. If you are in Vienna, Austria, Bratislava is only about a 45 minute drive from you. There are a few bus companies that go back and forth between Vienna and Bratislava all day (and they’re nice buses, and some even have wi-fi). Bratislava is a great option for a day trip from Vienna if you have time to spare. On this trip, we chose to go to Bratislava and stay for a couple of days. It was wonderful.

We arrived by train from Budapest. This sign greeted us in the train station.

Christmas Markets are so nice. People set up kiosks and sell all kinds of things…ornaments, hand-knit items, homemade soaps, drawings, handmade drinkware, food, drinks, mulled wine, linens…lots and lots to choose from.
