Editorial Reviews

Review

“The pocket book size guide makes you want to pack your bags and go to discover what this long neglected town has to offer… she has compiled a concise and fair overview of the town’s history, sights, and practicalities such as accommodation or best beers, giving insights about certain cafes, restaurants, buildings and people.”
The Budapest Sun, Feb 06

“I’ve never been to Bratislava and, as far as I’m aware, neither have any of my travelling friends. And that’s why I love this book-it’s made me want to go there…this thorough, enticing and wonderfully relevant little pocket-sized guide suggests a historic city with the appeal of Budapest on a smaller, cheaper scale. “
Real Travel, Apr 06

From the Back Cover

Bratislava is the "little-big" capital with something for everyone; it doesn't bellow its beauty like Prague, but states its case quietly and persistently until it captures your heart. Offering alluring architecture and a vibrant nightlife, the city effortlessly blends history with hedonism. Shop till you drop, stroll the museums and galleries, unwind on a Danube cruise and get stuck into some Slovak wine; whatever you're doing, let Lucy Mallows lead you along the Insiders' track.
 
*Stay in a Danube boat or a villa in the hills
*Restaurants--from international fine dining to a table in a TV tower
*Walking tours through the traffic-free Old Town
*Beyond the city: the wine route, romantic castles, and a ghostly gallery
*Tip-top beer at rock-bottom prices
*Color city and tram maps

Format: Paperback
This guide book is absolutely wonderful!

It is the first guide I found which really does justice to this fabulous city and doesn't push a few lines into the back of a guide book about the Czech Republic.

It has fascinating details on the complicated history and culture and what looks like an insider's guide to the hip restaurants, cafes and bars.

The eating and drinking section is a pleasure to read on its own, as it is really witty and well-written and I would recommend this book to anybody who wants to know the city better.

Many people say that there is not much to do in Bratislava, but obviously they could not have had this guide.

It is impossible to be bored in Bratislava with this guide, there are dozens of suggestions of day trips, where to stay, eat and drink and some excellent walking tours of the city.

After reading this guide from cover to cover, I can't wait to visit Bratislava and try out the revolving TV tower restaurant on Kamzik hill or the UFO cafe in a flying saucer spacecraft. They sound like such fun destinations!

The pocket-sized Bradt guide is also great as it really does fit in your pocket or hand-bag and is easy to carry everywhere I go.

Bratislava can almost be done without a guidebook, but this one has what little information you might need collected in one place.
