The Slovakian capital of Bratislava lies on the western border with Austria. With the mighty Danube running through it, Bratislava mixes old world charm with modern buzz to create a city unlike any other. Its compact city centre will mean that you’re not spending your day trekking on the underground, and you can spend more time enjoying the sites. Car hire in Bratislava allows you to venture to sites such as Bratislava City Gallery or one of its quaint museums such as the Museum of Clocks, or take a short drive up to the Castle where they host regular exhibitions.
