Bratislava Identity Bike Tour

Bratislava Identity Bike Tour is an insightful cycling journey with our local guide to understand the essentials of history and genius loci of the Slovak capital. 

Our bike tour takes you to the best cycling locations near the Bratislava city centre. After introduction in the Old Town, we cross the Danube river by iconic SNP bridge and enjoy splendid views to the main Bratislava city landmarks. We enjoy the chill of the oldest city park and head to the authentic communist-era housing estates of Petržalka.

The last part of the route leads us to the post-industrial modern riverside projects and the picturesque Blue Church. This intense bike tour shows you a full picture of Bratislava with its contrasts between medieval Old Town, Cold War history and the most recent developments.

2 hours, from 25€ per person

Easily the most unique tour I have been on ever. You can only see so many churches, castles and palaces. Seeing the recent socialism past was a very different and eye-opening trip through Bratislava. This is what Bratislava is all about. Truly enjoyable and overwhelming.

“Fabulous tour!” Chris, TripAdvisor review

This was without doubt the best guided experience I have had to date. Juro did an fantastic job – both knowledgeable, enthusiastic and able tailor the experience to us. I give my highest recommendations to Authentic Slovakia.

“Best guided experience to date” Rune, TripAdvisor review

It was a fascinating trip through this dystopian architects’ playground, and a really interesting look at how a small city like Bratislava has coped with the onslaught of communism and the effects of sudden urbanisation and centralized planning.

“Absolutelly brilliant!” Marcus, TripAdvisor review
