The old town hall is a charming and well preserved building in the center of old Bratislava. We enjoyed the museum and the visit to the tower for the view of the old town.

The Old Town hall with its lovely courtyard, is facing onto the capital's Main Square (Hlavne namestie) and dates back to the 15th century. The town hall came under fire when Napoleon attacked the city. You can still see a cannonball embedded in the wall. The Hall includes a complex of buildings from various architectural periods. It is the oldest... More

Very interesting architecture. If you are in the Old Town, you should definitely come by this building and admire it's very attractive façade and courtyard. Is certainly worth a visit. The artwork on the sides of the entrance to the courtyard should not be missed.

Though it was raining we had a great time walking in the city. It was Sunday so almost everything was closed plus they don't really speak English so we had s hard time asking for directions. Furthermore the taxi driver that took us to the airport was really rude but what can you do...

This is an impressive building. It helps to have a guide who can tell you about the history of the building - how it's been used, how it's evolved, etc. Be sure to see nearby sculptures, reviewed separately.

The UFO, the castle hill and Michael's Gate all offer good views of Bratislava, I think the old town hall tower has the best view. The museum experience is good, not because off the rather limited display with tedious descriptions of building alterations through time, but because you are actually walking within the main item - the tower - and...

Fascinating building. The focal point of the main square. The inner courtyard is spectacular. The museum is really interesting - e.g. the circular paintings that were used for target practice. Great views from the top of the tower.

Outside has a tower on one side with cockrels on top. The sloping red roof has dormer windows with chessboard pattern. Further along is a different style entirely. The inner courtyard has double layers of very elegant cloisters. Apparently now a museum, but the entrance to same not obvious.

Our photos turned out very well in this area because there was a lot going on here. We found a lot of good shopping and good beer here.

I did not see the museum exhibits, but for 2 Euros, you can get a ticket to climb to the top of the tower. Very nice views of hlavne namestie and St Michael's Gate. It's better than climbing the tower of St Michael's Gate, because here you can actually see it.
