Bratislava or Vienna?

Which is your favorite city in terms of architecture and/or entertainment?

Your choice of cities is quite random.

Comparing Vienna with Bratislava is an insult for Vienna.

Because their only 30 minutes apart and I am wondering which one is the best choice to visit for a day? Even though Vienna is bigger, does Bratislava have something the Vienna doesn't?

Sounds like city vs city.

And is pretty much unfair. Vienna is 4 times bigger than Bratislava.

Amsterdam or Brusseles?

Ok everyone, I have decided to change cities. Amsterdam vs. Brussels. I appreciate your comments on Bratislava vs Vienna being unfair so I hope this topic would be more interesting!

P.S. The title would be changed too!

Both have things to offer. Moreover they are so close to each other that theres no need to choose and you can enjoy both.

Bratislava has this monstrosity, which by itself is already worth a visit: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Slovensk%C3%BD_rozhlas



Apart from that there's no real contest here.

That's like saying who is hotter, Scarlett Johannssen or Roseanne? Vienna, obviously.

And Amsterdam is more beautiful than Brussels, because Brussels had this funny idea to tear down all of its old architecture and replace it with shit.

^ Thats unfair. Theres plenty of old architecture in Brussels - entire districts of Art-Nouveau townhouses for one, not to mention the Grand Place.

Vienna is maybe much bigger than Bratislava, but is still big provincial city for me with indescribably boring atmosphere, if there would not be all these foreigners and immigrants, actually all Austrians would die of boredom Budapest is so much better: noise, crowds, traffic, little dirt - this is true metropolis

As for Brussels vs Amsterdam. Well as much as I love art-nouveau, Amsterdam has some kickass art deco buildings and I also love 17th century Dutch architecture and there are plenty of good modern buildings too. Also, better parties, (legal) pot and canals. Not to mention Amsterdam is more cosmopolite than Brussels.

Thanks for sharing this utter bullshit. I know both cities damn well and none of them is any close to boredom. Vienna is even further away from it.

Amsterdam, nicer city with many old buildings, churches, palaces and houses and of course a lot of canals.

Bruxelles seems like a shity city to me, the only nice part I know there is the Grand Market with the Stadhuis and many buildings
