While working in Budapest, I decided to take a quick 2 hour train ride up to Bratislava, Slovakia to spend a few days in a city I didn’t know too much about. It’s not at the top of most people’s lists to visit when it comes to European capitals, but I’m more than glad I spent some time exploring this unique little city with my camera. It has a relaxing vibe with history, character and a ruggedness that comes without the fast paced chaos of bigger capital cities.
So here’s 33 photos that I was able to capture during my time in Bratislava…

Bratislava isn’t the biggest, most exciting city in the world, but it has a charm that other cities don’t have. It’s a relaxing escape in a capital city that grows on you the more you explore. It’s a place I’d recommend visiting to get away from the chaos of the bigger cities, while still experiencing a city full of history and a character all its own. Check out my first impressions of Bratislava from a Street Photographer’s perspective to find out more. And stay tuned for a Street Photography Guide to the city!
