Bratislava ToursA hidden gem known to just a few, Bratislava never feels crowded like other European capitals. The small size of “new” Europe’s youngest capital makes it manageable for a short stay—yet seems disproportionate to its outsized, rich history which dates to the Stone Age. Bratislava has been the capital of two very different countries (Hungary and Slovakia), and your accommodations at a Leading Small Hotel of the World in the Old Town puts you in the perfect location to explore its long, rich heritage. Visit nearby Michael’s Tower, and amble along the cobbled, pedestrian-only alleyways that surround it. Admire the Baroque architecture and keep your eyes peeled for the whimsical bronze sculptures that surprise and delight. Towering over the Old Town and the Danube is Bratislava Castle which houses the Slovak National Museum—a must on any visit to Bratislava.

Bratislava also boasts a lively musical scene. The city’s numerous churches play host to classical concerts, and the city opera now rivals that of Vienna and Budapest—for a fraction of the cost. When you’re ready to relax and refresh, the Old Town offers many world-class restaurants and turns into a giant outdoor café in the evening, perfect for dining and people-watching after a day of sightseeing.

Only available with the Air Inclusive Package.

Single supplement: $195

Day 1 - Depart the U.S. / Fly overnight to Vienna

Depart the U.S. for Vienna. The particulars of your arrival overseas are detailed in your flight itinerary.

Day 2 - Arrive Vienna / Transfer to Bratislava, Slovakia

Upon arrival at Vienna International Airport, proceed through immigration, claim your luggage, and clear customs. If your luggage is delayed, fill in a PIR form before leaving the customs area; VBT representatives are not allowed into the customs area. (Please note: Also make certain that your VBT luggage tags are affixed to your bag so your VBT representative can identify you.) After exiting customs, enter the arrival hall and look for your VBT representative, who will be holding a VBT sign. They will transfer you by van to your Bratislava hotel. (Transfer time is approximately 60 minutes, depending on traffic.)

VBT provides you with City Information in your Final Travel Booklet that includes information and recommendations on what to see and do in Bratislava during your stay. You have the rest of the day to relax or begin your exploration of the city.

Day 3 - Independent exploration of Bratislava

Europe's youngest capital city is too often overlooked by travelers to the region. Yet its rich history dates to the Stone Age, and its Old Town is a wonderland of Baroque architecture and whimsical bronze sculptures. The city's music and dining venues are a delight, some of its opera houses rivaling those of Vienna. Your accommodations in the heart of the Old Town are ideally situated for your exploration of this hidden gem. Explore the cobbled alleyways surrounding Michael's Gate. Take in a classical concert at the Bratislava Opera. Browse the Slovak National Museum, lodged within historic Bratislava Castle. Or enjoy the view from Slavin, a hilltop memorial to fallen Russian soldiers who liberated Bratislava from occupying Germans.

Day 4 - Independent exploration / Join VBT Air Package guests

Spend another day enjoying Bratislava.

VBT Air Package guests arrive throughout the day.
