Bratislava – A Taste of Slovakian Life

Wednesday, February 17, 2021

Bratislava may not immediately come to mind as a travel spot – in fact, it’s often an adjunct to visits to nearby Prague or Budapest – but this charming medium-sized city is well-worth a visit of its own. Its location bordering Austria and Hungary makes it the only national capital that borders two countries, only 18 kilometres (11.2 mi) from the Hungaria border and only 60 kilometres (37.3 mi) from that of Austria. The Danube River passes through the city from the west to the southeast. The cityscape of Bratislava is characterized by medieval architecture and grandiose 20th-century structures. We will be visiting Bratislava Castle as well as notable cathedrals and churches, the ultra-modern UFO Tower, and learning about Slovakian cuisine. Our tour guide, Marilyn Harris, worked on education for over 40 years and in her retirement has continued to teach classes on history and travel. Contact the COA to register 781 786 6280.
