We popped into the castle grounds after a walk down the Moravian wetlands and we were pleasantly surprised by the little town and the castle. The position where the Morava river meets the Danube as you look over towards Austria has layers of historical significance- most recently the iron curtain. We took our dog for a walk around the paths... More

Probably the best attraction in (surroundings of) Bratislava. Appx 20km away from city center a real place of history. Ask for a guide Juraj (or sth like that), he's just full of stories and adds his personal touch to the visit.

It's worth the walk and you get some lovely views from the old castle, so take a camera and wander around.

Old history in wonderfull place. Rocky hill above the Danube and Morava rivers confluence has very old history. On the Celtic settlement, Roman military station and Great Moravian fortress stays the ruins of medieval castle, now museum.

We had lunch on a local restaurant. Just delicious. We got to the castle on sunset. Destroyed by napoleon Bonaparte. But it is just incredible! Very beautiful... very romantic! Overlooking the Danube!
