I visited: Bratislava

To visit the old town ( Stare Mesto ) is necessary only one day ( 2 days if you choose to visit some museum or a maximum of 3 days if you choose to visit the suburbs and parks ); Bratislava I think overall is a nice city for tourism and the prices are very cheap. Do not miss the view of the city from UFO Observation Deck !
