This tour is a fabulously tasty and fun introduction to our fair city.

Your tour will begin at one of Bratislava’s most iconic sights, the Blue Church, an art nouveau gem with a striking blue facade just outside the historical center.
After starting with an architectural bang, we can‘t think of a better way of keeping the high going than with a beer toast. Trust us, locals know best! At our first stop, we‘ll sample a fresh beer from our favorite local brewery and chat about life in the city. Feeling like a local now, we’ll then make our way to the beautiful Old Town.
As we stroll, you’ll see some quintessential Bratislava sights and hear the stories behind them and find out more about the people that call the city home. One of our favorite buildings is the stunning high school/gymnasium built in classic secession style, which we’ll happily point out to you.
Walking down Laurinska Street, a funky thoroughfare packed with small businesses and hip, outdoor eateries, you’ll find out about Slovakia‘s most famous author, P O Hviezdoslav and we’ll stop for a coffee in the most iconic coffee shop in town.
The best old towns always have secret passages that only locals know about and thankfully, Bratislava is no different! Follow us down a passage that will lead us right into the historic heart of the Old Town. Hviedoslav’s Square boasts lovely views of the Slovak National Theatre building and the Ganymede’s fountain. We’ll promenade our way through the square and explore the buzzing side streets where we’ll show you our pick of the best shops, cafés, and restaurants.
Another classic feature of an old town is the old merchants who ply their trade from old fashioned shop fronts. We‘ll stop at the city’s oldest shop, which hides a market museum inside! Here you’ll sample the best (voted for by locals) Bratislava rolls and typical ribezlák wine which will really put a cherry on top of this Bratislava tour sundae.
And now the big finish, admiring the magnificent views from the Town Hall, which will be sure to have all your social media followers green with envy.
