Roadtrip pt.4: Bratislava!

September 25, 2013

In the same way that I didn’t know what to expect for Dresden, I definitely didn’t know what to expect from Bratislava. For a capital city with only 500,000 people living in it, I wasn’t sure how many people would speak English or what we would be able to find in terms of vegan food. I was kind of relieved when I found that almost everyone spoke English and there were plenty of vegan options! I actually had to catch myself when I began complaining that there were ‘only‘ twelve or so results on Happycow… how ridiculous of me! I’ll be putting together a separate blog post on all of the food we ate, but we had plenty of choice while we were here.

It was strange to walk around a capital city that was so quiet. It was really nice, though – coming from so many busy cities (especially Prague!) it was a welcome change.


This bar really knew how to sell itself:

Just around the corner from our hotel we stumbled upon the sweetest tea shop. It was absolutely jam-packed with jars of teas, in every flavour imaginable. The lady who owned the shop was really lovely – and although she didn’t speak very much English, we managed to get by with pointing and smiling.



One afternoon we went up the UFO Tower, which gave you views across the city. Although the view wasn’t particularly spectacular, it was still fun to see across the city. You had to pay to go up the tower, after walking across a really long bridge, crossing the river, and once you had reached the top there was a map pointing out landmarks, like the shopping centre.


Have you been to Bratislava? Do you ever find yourself getting used to the accessibility of vegan options?
