Bratislava - the little big city.
With fewer than half a million people, Bratislava ranks to Europe's most relaxed capitals, because everything is in close vicinity, reachable within few minutes walking distance. Even other 2 capital cities are very close - Vienna (80km) and Budapest (200km) - reachable also by a boat on the river Danube. Besides, the city itself has its old-town charm, sophisticated restaurants, traditional pubs, good music ranging from jazz to opera, stylish people, and a human scale which means that as a visitor you will not spend half your day trekking in and out of underground stations or getting from the airport into town. All this plus Central Europe's greatest river as a backdrop. What more could you want?
