Description

Instead of sticking to conventional tourist routes, I prefer to blend in with Bratislava’s back alleys and uncover their hidden gems. If you also enjoy this way of exploring, I’ll be more than happy to show you around my hometown!

We’ll walk around former heaquarters of Slovak Comunist Party, get to know how a holy image over the main entrance of the shool from 1901 survived the socialism era, climb the hill with the unique cavalry, pass a church without a tower and visit the calmest place in town. Afterwards, we’ll have a refreshment at the oldest beergarden beneath the old chestnut trees and enjoy a glass of Budvar 10°. We’ll pass around wooden Nazi architecture houses in direction to the Slavín WWII memorial to admire the beautiful view. There will be enough time to take photos.

From Slavín we will walk downhill around many residencies of embassies to the former very popular meeting point in front of the Presidential palace, where we finish our tour.

Small group sizes (max. 12 participants) mean that you’ll have plenty of opportunity to ask questions and learn about local life.

Reviews from participants

Fascinating insights into modern Slovakia
Erich gave me a really interesting tour of Bratislava! He shared some insights with me about the history of the city, how it developed under Soviet rule and how that has shaped the city today. Lots of great views and insider knowledge on old buildings around the city. Thanks Erich!
Great tour
