Came to visit Bratislava on my way to Romania from uk. Haven’t felt welcomed and on top of that my car was broken and they took everything they could carry. Not a really safe capital. One day there and it was enough to know that I won’t come again. Shamed, beautiful country but if you don’t know the language you’ll be ignored as not many of them know English.

Basically bratislava is safe. I'm here for last 4 years. But with increasing number of illegal immigrants it's getting less safe than before. I can see the difference now. I think in few year they will have same problems as Wiena or Paris where I lived previously.

Country full of poverty and racists, look at the comments it is 2021 and people a still spreading racism towards Africans and Middle East as if Europeans haven't been destroying each other in two world wars throughout the 20th century...

I have been living in Bratislava for the past 15 months. It is safe as it stands. To better say, if you got dark skin and mind your business, you should be fine. From the other end is like a lottery. If you find yourself at the wrong place, at the right moment, then read the news of the attack on immigrants in Bratislava. Many attacks are never reported but shared only between foreigners. Police don't care much, so the people are not either reporting those events. Immigration is low but slowly increasing. It is getting more and more western country, and so the crime index will dramatically increase.

Everybody says that Bratislava is one of the safest city in Europe... well, this is because of no immigration.
Wherever there are immigrants from Africa or middle east there is crime and violence.

I live in Bratislava for around 8 years as a foreigner from Germany (male). I never had any problem with crime at all. Also my female woman walk home at night. I feel very save here. I had never a problem with corruption personally, even I had a company here as long you are not doing business with the government (see below my comment there). Police is fine, sure they make some tourist car control on some special places but they never you can talk to them and they never ask for money, etc.

Corruption is a problem, but in my point of view only on high politician level, like EU money for IT projects or building infrastructure. Which is funny that EU (money) is one if the main reason of corruption in Slovakia... Sure as well all government project are corrupted too, which everyone knows (hidden by hundreds of requirements to get the contract, that everyone can be declined which is not a brother/friend of someone by not fulfilling ONE of the requirements)

In the 12 years i've lived here, nothing has happened to me. I think it is pretty safe in Bratislava, maybe less in the rural areas. Just be careful at night, use common sense etc. Also the corruption is in the politicians, not the cops so don't try bribing them. Other than that, Bratislava is a very safe place to be.

Safer than most European capitals.

Corruption is reported high here, but if so, then maybe among politicians and councilors. Definitely not among street cops, do not try to bribe them when in trouble!
