BratislOvE… :)

2013-11-20 10.48.01Bratislava has one of the smallest historical centers in Eu but this means that the charm is more concentrated.

The Danube river gives a lot of charm to this small European capital.

Bratislava was the perfect location for  a bunch of italians’ reunion, in fact my friend who lives in Prague has good italian friends that live in Nitra, a small slovak city, so the meeting point was BratislOvE 🙂

Bratislava is easily reachable from the main central Europe capitals (Budapest, Prague, Wien) by train or bus

2013-11-19 13.58.04  Our base was Patio Hostel in a street very close to the centre, clean and with nice staff. Hostel Patio offers laundry included in the price, WOW!!!!

2013-11-16 21.27.25 After the check in at the hostel we went out for a proper slovak dinner, with halusky (small potato dumpling similar to italian homemade gnocchi) and pierogi (very popular in Poland and Russia too, kind of ravioli) with cabbage and slovak cheese, then a city walk helped our digestion… 🙂

The city centre is very compact and everything is within a short walking distance, even the castle a the top of the hill is easy target.

The next day we discovered the city with natural light. Fist stop was this ‘pyramid’ listed among the ugliest building in the world, then the Danube banks, a political demonstration (it was the freedom celebration day) and something else.
