What to Expect From Expat Life in Bratislava
Bratislava may be among Europe's smaller capital cities, but what it lacks in scale it more than makes up for in history and personality. The winding streets of the city's old town are packed with traces of Slovakia's storied past, sharing space with lively modern bars, cafes, and restaurants. The city is also uniquely well-connected, with excellent transport links to Vienna, Budapest, and Prague. Many expats are drawn to Bratislava by business opportunities in key industries such as IT, engineering, and telecommunications, while others use the city as an affordable base for commuting into Vienna. The city also has a rich cultural life, with several active theaters, museums, and galleries, as well as a thriving local music scene. Open-minded and inquisitive expats will find a warm welcome and a wide variety of experiences in this unsung gem of central Europe.
