We honestly thought that Bratislava would be a little of the beaten track, and we had read somewhere that it's a city usually left out by the mobs of tourist who flock into Prague and Budapest
So as you can imagine, finding budget accommo in this town was a little more difficult than we imagined.So we walked into an accommodation agency with our tails between our legs *(what u didn't know we had tails?) to beg for some cheap accommodation. Once we got there, we ran into a group of three Sweedes who we had talked to earlier in the day. They had already hooked up a room and were waiting for the owner to pick them up. I suggested that it would be cool if we all shared the same room and split the costs five ways. They agreed but when the owner arrived he didn't think it was such a great idea. So Nads and I picked the cheapest place on the list, we were told that the 'lady' would pick us up at 3.45pm to take us to the apartment. After sitting around for a bit, the 'lady' who had miraculously turned into a braided teenage dude who looked like he was straight out of an MTV video clip took us to our apartment on the ass end of town. In all fairness though, the kid was super friendly, really helpful and the apartment was ok. Except for the fridge, I opened it up and something almost pulled me in, it was pretty nasty in that fridge.
So after spending a large chunk of the day looking for somewhere to stay, we were both buggered and a little bit cranky. We went for a walk around the town, which is pretty nice - check it out if your ever in this part of Europe. We spent the rest of our time in Bratislava drowning our sorrows with cheap beer and equally cheap wine. The next day it was onto Prague a little seedy.
