The most popular period in Bratislava is the spring to autumn period - namely May till around October time - with temperatures often reaching the high 20s and even into the low 30s on occasion. Despite being a capital city, Bratislava rarely gets overly busy, which is one of its major pro points. Although the spring and summer months see most of the tourist activities taking place, autumn and winter are also great times to go. As with most major European cities, there is a fantastic Christmas market in the city’s main square each year.
There is a wide range of incredible things to do and see in the city of Bratislava. Bratislava Castle is one of the most prominent sights.

Speaking of the river, there are a number of boat tours that can be taken to both nearby towns and other major European cities. The Danube travels through 10 different countries, with Bratislava being just one stop for many cruises. There are walking tours, some of them free, for seeing the major sights of the city and getting around by tram is the most efficient (and traditional) way of seeing and doing everything.
