Bratislava has accommodation for everyone, whatever your budget. More than 70 accommodation facilities provide services in various categories and standards. The more luxurious ones are in the city centre, many of which are right in the old town pedestrian zone. However, more economical guesthouses and hostels can also be found in the centre. Students, young people and others will definitely appreciate the wide array of smaller guesthouses and youth hostels in the city.

Bratislava is justly considered as the city of music. In the past, the giants of music like Mozart, Haydn, Beethoven, Rubinstein, and Hummel acted here. The present ballet and opera of the Slovak National Theatre are world-known by their classical performances and brought up the opera stars like Peter Dvorský, Lucia Popp or Edita Gruber.
The shopping scene in Bratislava has improved out of all recognition in the last few years. Not only do many stores have long opening hours, with the big malls open at weekends as well as during holidays, but the range of products now on offer – from global brands to local specialities – is commensurate with the city's size and status.

Bratislava is a historic city, which has grown out of its past as a free royal coronation town. At that time it was known as Pressburg, Prešporok or Pozsony. The spirit of its past can be felt in every step. In the historical city centre you can find amazing pastel-coloured palaces, built by European nobility. Visitors will enjoy the many reconstructed fountains from times long gone, gothic churches, romantic narrow alleyways and one of the most stunning old squares in Central Europe.
Bratislava is greatly influenced by the natural features of its territory. The natural environment of the city has excellent recreational potential, in particular thanks to the Little Carpathian forests to the north of the city and the Danube watercourse in the south. There are around four thousand hectares of green areas in the city, three quarters of which can be found in Bratislava forest park - Lesopark, which offers plentiful space for relaxation, regeneration and hiking and sporting activities.
Healthcare in the Slovak capital is catered for by an extensive network of out-patient facilities, hospitals and other medical facilities. The most prominent of these include the Faculty Hospital, which at the same time prepares also students of medicine for their future careers. The city leaders put great emphasis on health. Proof of this is in the realisation of the declaration of Healthy City Bratislava, in connection with which the city is focusing on improving the natural environment and the health of residents, and on improving their lifestyle.
Bratislava, the capital of the Slovak Republic, lies at the heart of Central Europe. It spans both banks of the River Danube, the second largest river in Europe, and lies at the foot of the Little Carpathian range. Bratislava sits at the border with three countries, with Hungary to the south, and Austria and the Czech Republic to the west. Covering almost 368 square kilometres, it is officially home to more than 425,000 residents. The real population of the city is about one third higher, however, thanks to the many students and workers from other parts of Slovakia.
Bratislava, the capital of the Slovak Republic, is governed by elected local government bodies. The City Mayor is the highest representative of the city executive. The highest legislative power in Bratislava falls to the eighty-member City Council. This local government structure has been in place since 1990.
