I am sure you came across this article searching for offbeat things to do, offbeat experiences, offbeat places or offbeat paths! And that's exactly what happened with me while I was planning my next Euro-trip to an offbeat destination. Yes whilst researching for offbeat things to do in Europe my search came to a halt at this trivial country of Slovakia right in between the most visited and touristy countries of Austria and Hungary! Being guarded by stronger tourist destinations on all sides the capital of Bratislava is known as Pressburg for the Germans, Pozsony for the Hungarians, Požun for the Croatians it is. All these synonyms dint matter to me. All I knew was I was definitely making my stop at the wonderful Slovakian capital of Bratislava.
Having squeezed in few days at this city I was ready to explore the city on the very first day visiting Bratislava's most popular attractions, the Bratislava Castle! Upon arriving at this magnificent dictating white structure that houses the museum and Slovakian treasury, every corner spoke volumes of the 2000 years of rich history dating back to Celtic times. For a history buff like me a trip to Bratislava wouldn't have been complete without making the climb up to the whitewashed castle building of Bratislavsky Hrad.
