As a architectural edifice the castle is disappointing because it has been rebuilt after a fire. The permanent display of artworks is historically interesting but there is only one masterpiece (my opinion). The current WWI exhibit is well worth a visit. The highlight of the castle is the tower, reached by climbing up many flights of steep stairs--absolutely fantastic views... More

Most of the parts of the castle are still under renovation. We only took photos from outside. There was a pre-historic/ historic museum but we had no interest. I saw the board showing what to be expected when they will be done. It seemed pretty fantastic. However, nobody know when it is.

Bratislava Castle dominates the city, and has become a symbol of the new nation of Slovakia. It is certainly worth the visit, especially for the view it affords of the city. Restrooms are available in the lower quarter, but are quite a hike.

We had a very nice walk from city centre to the Castle. Great observation points up there. Must see when visiting Bratislava.

An amazing view where you can see for miles and miles. Currently being restored but still amazing views. All the better for having a opportunity of a beer on the way down.

Better looking than this picture shows. There is not much inside but the location and space are great.

There are a lot of castles on the Danube river. Some are old, crumbling and historic. This one is in fantastic condition, perched high above the river with great views over the city below. The parks that surround the castle are perfect for relaxing on a hot day. Most people, including me, give the inside tour a miss and just... More

The castle is impressive and fun to explore. I wouldn't plan on spending too much time there on a short visit to Bratislava, but it is worth stopping by.

A visit to the castle of Bratislava is a must. Perfect example of architectural restoration. To date, the rooms will have strictly remains within them are held several exhibitions. From the castle you can enjoy a wonderful view of the Danube.
