HIPSTER DAY IN BRATISLAVA

This is a city guide to all the people who don’t need to eat at the traditional pubs when traveling abroad, who like to visit the cool cafes and little shops instead, and only have one day to spend in Bratislava. We have made a chronological list of places to visit – in a way that you can walk it all on foot and won’t need to walk for more than 10 minutes to get to your next stop. Of course, including all the major sights that are not to be missed :) Enjoy!

07:30 Wake up.

08:30 Have some breakfast at Mondieu.

09:15 Walk to the Main square (Hlavné námestie), check the outdoor markets and take photos with our symbolic statues.
