The hrad in Bratislava is one of two must-see points of interest in Bratislava. Overlooking the city and all other landmarks, the walls of the castle provide perfect vantages for photographs. The castle has historical significance and clean architectural appeal. The grounds are well kept and conducive to large groups being able to coexist without compression. The long hike up... More

This castle is another example of the wonderful heritage of Bratislava. Spend time walking the grounds of this stark white walled castle. Take a step back in time...

We saw from the outside not inside not worth 6 euros to see most of the interesting stuff has gone. If the stuff inside was available i mean the old antiques it would be better

The Castle has some great views. The exhibits are quite interesting and expect to be there at least 2-3 hours.

Bratislava Castle is in the process of being renovated and as such it has a feeling of "newness" about it that doesn't correspond to its rich history. There is a wealth of information in English so one usually knows what you are looking at. At times I found myself wandering through clusters of empty rooms looking for exhibits. It is... More

The castle it self its nothing extraordinary I did not get inside because I saw lots of reviews saying it was nothing special and had some empty rooms. The views from outside the castle are great. Great to get a nice panoramic photo.

Not a lot inside, and totally renovated but still nice to walk around in and absorb the history. Displays are very well presented; usually in German and English at least.

Well protected on top of one of the steepest hills you can encounter, Hrad Castle simply radiates power and heritage. This grand castle is one of the largest, but also most basic I have seen, which is extremely refreshing given the grandeur of other castles around the continent. Having traveled through Prague and Budapest to reach Bratislava I found the... More

Truly magnificent views from the castle; the castle itself is under construction and is not filled with treasures as you would expect. That said, you must review the history of the castle through the years -- it has seen many, many changes, occupants, wars. Now that they've refurbished the outside, I expect the interior will be filled quickly. At the... More
