Bratislava, Slovakia

Host to the crowning ceremonies of 11 Hungarian kings and queens between 1536 and 1830, Bratislava certainly has earned the title "Coronation City of Kings". The capital of Slovakia is also referred to as the Beauty on the Danube. Not to be missed are its historic Old Town with local merchants and Bratislava Castle where you'll be rewarded with a panoramic view of the city and the neighboring countries.
