The last day of our trip we spent in Bratislava - the capital of Slovakia. Vienna and Bratislava are probably the closest capital cities in the world - only 65 km apart, less than an hour trip by bus. After the luster of Vienna, Bratislava initially struck me as the poor relative - the parks are smaller and less well kept, the buildings are not so grand and spectacular. However, it gradually grew on me and we had a very pleasant walk around the old town and the medieval castle. Definitely worth a day's visit.
