We just came from Old Town Krakow so we had high expectations. Old Town Bratislava has its own charm and must see attractions. It is smaller but has lots of great photo ops. A must see.

Throughout the old city there are beautiful iconic buildings of which this is a must see. The architecture is splendid and the views from the observation deck are not to be missed. Great photo stop of an as yet unspoilt city.

A nice place to visit, as it has the buzz and at the same point is a relaxing place as well. The architecture is great and a walk around this square is a must if you are in Bratislava.

Located in the heart of the city center, at the Main square of Bratislava. It is part of the City Museum and there is an observation deck up in its tower. You can either visit the whole museum (one of the top museums of Bratislava to see) or choose only to go up to the tower. Beautiful view on the... More

The old town has lots of restaurants and pubs. The buildings do not impresse that much. Some fun statues along the way. Bratislava is a nice place to spend a few hours not days. The center is small, outside the tourist center it is not very good.

It is worth the 5 euros just for the views across the Old Town to the Castle and St Michaels Mount. It has a lot of artefacts which are of some interest if you are keen on History. All explanations are in both English and Slovakian.

The Old Town Hall overlooking the main square of Bratislava houses the City Museum. Entry is €5 and it is open 10-5pm, closed on Mondays. A series of buildings set around a courtyard tell you all you need to know about the history of the city. It was called Pressburg before 1919. There are lots of old photographs and a... More

This was an amazing building from the outside, very clean and in what appeared to be pristigne condition. For some reason, it does not open on a Monday so we could only look outside, from the foundations to the crowns atop the building. It was a really hot day yet, the square on the inside was really cool & welcoming.... More

It doesn't take long to do, but it is FULL of history...from your feet to the sky, there is something to see! Follow the gold crowns, stop for traditional lunch, and make sure to read the historic plaques and dates on the walls of the buildings. Truly amazing place!
