Bratislava Castle , Bratislava Reviews

  • Empty ..but nice...history somehow should be more presented...even it is not easy in a culturally very mixed environment. Maybe therefore it is better that it is empty. No one's national feeling would get hurt. Anyhow, very well renovated walls and good infrastructure. Good parking, restaurants etc....

  • There's a lot of history behind this modern castle. Very nice place! The wiev from above it's incredible! I recommend to spend more than one hour inside and visit all the castle's rooms. There is a very strange little tower inside it, FIND IT!!

  • An excellent building and area, totally worth visiting! Easy to get to by public transport (had I known I'd have to literally climb that mountain, I would've taken the trolley!). There's a wonderful view there, you can see all the opposite Danube bank, the SNP tower and the lovely city centre churches and red roofs. Loved it and would be happy to get back one day!

  • I was expecting a better castle architecturally. This castle looks like an apartment. Therefore I didn’t want to get inside, so I can not tell anything about what you can see inside of the castle. However, the location is really nice, the city is under your feet. You can enjoy the scene.

  • This is the main castle of Bratislava and stands on an isolated rocky hill of the Little Carpathians directly above the Danube river. It can be seen from many parts of the city and specially from the UFO tower where the view is amazing. The views from the castle are also fantastic during day and night which gives you a different "taste". In a clear day it is possible to see also Austria.
