About

Bratislava, a small yet dynamic European capital, hides many secrets and gems waiting to be discovered. Imagine walking with a local friend who shows you the coolest places and the nicest highlights of Bratilslava. Well, this tour is just like that, join it if you wish to spend the best 2 hours of your stay here! 


Explore with us unique and somewhat hidden courtyards, palaces, churches and statues of the historical Old-Town. During the tour we will visit the Primate’s Palace, where Napoleon was confirmed as the ruler of Europe, see the statue of St. George, one of the patrons of the city, and get to know his life story. From there on we will be moving towards the eastern gate of the city towards 19th and 20th century landmarks, such as the amazing secession style school and the breathtaking Blue Church where you will be able to peek in and enjoy the marvellous colours and decorations. If the weather permits, we have one of the best spots to enjoy the skyline of Bratislava from the Old-Bridge, a place where nations and rulers once clashed and where tanks first arrived in Bratislava during the Prague Spring in 1968. Before coming back to the Medieval city centre, we will visit the National Museum and National Gallery, walk the river promenade and get to the Philharmonic orchestra, the location of the first anti-communist protest in all of Czechoslovakia in 1988.


Join us on this walk to understanding the soul of Bratislava, a city that has stood at the crossroads of history and emerged vibrant and full of life. Discover with us the city’s hidden gems and while doing so get to know the city’s past as well as its present, and leave with memories that will beckon you back to this charming European capital!
