Host to the crowning ceremonies of 11 Hungarian kings and queens between 1536 and 1830, Bratislava certainly has earned the title “Coronation City of Kings,” as you’ll discover during your walking tour.

Alternatively, visit a local boutique, where you’ll be treated to the region’s finest apricot products.
