The “Princess on the Danube,” just a stone’s throw from Vienna, boasts a truly charming Old Town, dating back to when it was the coronation city of the Hungarian kings. You can stay in the heart of the Slovak capital in reasonably-priced hotels and walk to your concert in one of the city-centre churches. A lively street café culture makes Bratislava a particularly congenial place to spend a few days, especially in summer, which is usually hot and sunny!
