Great culture, interesting buildings and history makes this a must see. The views of the Danube were spectacular, and the sun was setting making the view all the better. you can see the alps in the distance on a good day.

Visit of this monumental castle - one of the oldest in Slovakia (the first mention 863 A.D) - offers a variable option for both leisure as well as for education. First of all, it is one of the oldest Slavic settlement. Fortification situated on a limestone hill - about 212 m height above the confluence of the Danube and Morava... More

You can go there from Bratislava city centre by bus, it's a short drive. Ruins maybe aren't spectacular (but I'm sure, that history passionates will find them fascinating ;)), but the views... They are stunning! And reflect the very best of Slovak landscapes. Forests, small villages, rivers... You can forget about the whole city jazz there. What's more, when we... More

This castle is definitely worth a short trip on the bus from Most SNP. The castle costs €1.50 to get in, and is a great place to visit outside Bratislava. The border between Slovakia and Austria runs right down the middle of two rivers directly below the castle, and seeing what was once the iron curtain first hand was really... More

I recommend to visit this place if you like historical spots, it's open air and high, be prepared for a windy visit.

Just a few minutes bus ride from Bratislava's Old Town. Get a glimpse of this historical castle which was blown up by Napoleonic Wars. Iron Curtain Memorial was also around the field. A small fee is collected upon going to the castle premises and for me it was worth it. There is also a mini museum within the castle vicinity... More

Just have a look at the photo I've attached to see one of the more eccentric pieces of architecture ever built. Very enjoyable visit, the grounds are fantastic to just casually stroll around and relax.

The easiest way to reach the castle from Bratislava is to take bus 29 from bus terminal under the Most SNP bridge. The trip takes app. 20 minutes so you will need a 30 minutes ticket wich costs 0.90 euros. The place is definately woth visiting even at winter time, not only because of the castle ruis but also the... More
