Bratislava travel packages

Enjoy the "Little Big City's" beautiful baroque palaces, charming cobbled streets, and affordable dining.

Welcome to Bratislava, the youngest European metropolis! Rich in history ,with its medieval and Gothic Old Town, baroque palaces, and an impressive castle on one side and the stark-angled communist-era blocks and the unique "UFO bridge" on the other, the "Beauty on the Danube" is surely an intriguing place. This musical city has hosted greats like Mozart, Haydn, and Beethoven. Add the numerous (eccentric) statues, boutiques, hip cafes, and lively nightlife, and influences from many different cultures, and you get a great spot for a city break.

Bratislava features plenty of nature. Located along the Danube, Bratislava runs from the Austrian border to the Lesser Carpathians, a hilly region with many vineyards and great vistas and hiking spots, not to mention places for wine tastings and bike rides.

Where to stay in Bratislava

Still an off-the-beaten-path destination, there isn't the same quantity of hotels in Bratislava as you'll find in neighboring capitals like Vienna, but the quality definitely isn't lacking and we've hand-picked the very best the city has to offer, with boutique and luxury hotels that any city would envy. Once we start preparing your customized itinerary we will present our recommended options for you to select from.

Things to do in Bratislava

Bratislava is highlighted by the city's historical Old Town center. This can easily be traversed on foot and seen in one day but to make the most of your time there, you might want to enlist the services of a private guide. Be sure to visit the Bratislava Castle, St. Martin's Cathedral, and the New Bridge/SNP Bridge lookout tower (known by locals as the "UFO.") If you're staying for more than a night, we highly recommend a wine tour along the Small Carpathian wine route. When we send you your customized itinerary you will be able to choose additional excursions to include in your vacation package or consider adding later.

We have not regretted for a moment, we entered the Jay Way world. Within minutes they had sent us an itinerary for our proposed trip and later gave us several selections for accommodations at various levels of comfort. We saved ourselves hours of self inflicted searching, pondering, reserving and unnecessary risk. We were comforted greatly at the transition points, i.e., being met as we arrived at each location, having a city tour to orient us to each city, and then transport to either the train station or by shuttle to our next destination. We recommend Jay Way Travel without any reservation. The time, energy, and effort they saved us was worth every dollar of their fee, which by any accounts was very reasonable.
