Under $100 / Europe

The Slovakian capital city is just an hour from Vienna by train or boat, and it makes for a good stop-off. You can see most of the sights in a day or two, so here is your guide to how to experience the city on less than $100.

Start with breakfast at Kaffe Mayer, a traditional café that offers great coffee and cake ($8). Take a walk around the old town, where the Christmas markets take place, and look at the Primate’s Palace and St Martin’s Cathedral.

Next, make your way up to the observation deck at UFO, which sits on top of the Most SNP Bridge. It’s a great way to get your bearings in the city and look down over town ($7).

One of the best lunch spots is Leberfinger, which looks out over the Danube from a historic 18th-century building ($20). In the afternoon, take a bike ride along the Danube to look at the Iron Curtain border bunkers and explore the Sad Janka Král’a park (bike hire $5).

For an early evening drink, Sky Bar is one of the best places in town. Grab a local white wine ($4) and look out over the city from the seventh-floor terrace, and then descend for dinner at Restauracia Hrad in the grounds of Bratislava Castle ($25).
