Bratislava Castle - Review

The Bratislava Castle dates back to 907 AD and is one of the most popular tourist attractions in the city. The place was built overlooking the Danube river and you can see Austria (also Hungary on a clear day) from the Castle itself.

Originally built as a part of fortification for the city’s defense, today the building serves as a collection of the Slovak National Museum, exhibition of the region’s treasures and as a Museum of history.

Bratislava Castle , Bratislava Reviews

  • The Castle site is amazing, you can see the whole town and area, is is just fabulous. the castle itself was renovated in the middle of the century so it's not really ancient. The exhibitions inside are divided: some are excellent and some are bizarre (to say the least). More than half of the place is close to visitors, maybe in some other times there are more exhibitions available. Overall worth a visit. On the narrow streets climbing up the to the castle there are some beautiful shops and cafes

  • Beautiful views of Bratislava. Easy access to the castle and multiple points that lead to the surrounding old town. There is a lot to see, so would recommend a tour for an overview of the grounds. As of this post some construction on the switchbacks that exit the castle, went early to avoid large groups. Between the castle itself, gardens, ruins, and surrounding walls, take plenty of time to enjoy before heading to the square for coffee or wine.

  • This place is near the to the Old Town of Bratislava and worth a visit, sitting in the shadow of the castle in the park. It has a beautiful sight to the Danube and the other side of the city. You can see it from almost anywhere in Bratislava, you can't miss it. A huge white building. :) (Don't eat inside the castle, the service was horrible - I asked if they have lactose-free milk for the coffee, a waiter told me yes, we waited 15 minutes than while we ordered an another waiter told us they don't have lactose-free milk...)

  • This Castle has it's own beauty. You should not expect to see treasures similar to what you can find in Prague or Vienna. What you will find instead is a nice story of Czechs and Slovaks during the time and how they got two independent states. They have some nice old retro (of the 19's) objects exposed in the museum. I would say that it's worth seeing something different than treasures: gold and silver statues.

  • Took a walking tour. We walked around the castle but did not enter. Impressive. If we had the time it would have been worth entering. There are some exhibition areas I would have liked to see.
