I was surprised how small this building was but the size was nothing when you considered the different styles of architecture. It is worth a visit to appreciate and maybe fill in another bit of history of Bratislava.

This building is composed of all sorts of different architectural elements from medieval era. Inside the building is really not interesting and houses a museum and other offices. Walking around visiting and playing a public piano might be interesting thing to do for half an hour or so.

The most interesting for me is the cannon ball on the left side of the Gothic window. It was left to remind on French siege in 1805 and 1809.

great for those who want to learn a bit about Bratislava and to see various things in one small place...The town hall is an amalgam of different styles. Throughout the year, make sure you look into the courtyard at least, there's often a little market on, especially during the vine harvesting and in winter...

There is a Christmas Market in this area over the holidays. There is a nice display about the city and a craft area selling locally made crafts. I quick stop is worth the time when in this quaint city.

The museum in the old town hall takes you through the development if the town hall and the town.it contains some excellent artefacts but the building itself is the main attraction. The town gives you excellent views over the town to see all the tiled roofs.

Just a nice place to visit. Nothing fancy, it houses several artifacts from various generations of the city. A nice time killer.

The building is nice and maybe the view from the tower. There is some explanation in English to all items, but the personel do NOT speak a word of English, German or French, I am sorry to say.

The town hall dates between 1370 and 1550. It has an imposing Tower which is open to visitors and a pretty tiled roof design. It overlooks the beautiful main square with its fountain and interesting sculptures. It encloses a pretty courtyard in one corner of which is a cafe and craft shop. The staff are Downs syndrome with a supervisor... More
