Slovakia is a central European country known for its dramatic natural landscape and many castles. Near the Austrian border, capital city Bratislava features a pedestrian-only Old Town with a lively cafe scene. Rising on a hill above the Danube River, Bratislava Castle houses a branch of the Slovak National Museum, with displays ranging from Roman artifacts to 20th-century arts and crafts.
We visited Slovakia for a day while they were in Budapest, Hungary. We explored Bratislava and visited the Bratislava Castle, the Blue Church, the Bratislava Museum of City History, Old Town and the Original Slovak Restaurant.
