Bratislava old town is really nice. Like someone already said before, it's not striking like some other cities but it has certain charm!

“Nice, but not striking.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2013

The Old Town of Bratislava is surely a lovely place with many nice buildings to see. However, it is not something special and striking. At least, it didn't make a great impression on us because the Old Town of Bratislava is quite similar to other old towns of some other cities in Europe.

“The old town.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2013

Lots of great buildings and backstreets to wander around. The bus ride around the centre was worth doing as well.

“Beautiful Old Town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2013

We did this as a day trip from Vienna. It was well worth it but were not too rushed either. It is quite a nice place to just go for a walk have a cup of tea and people watch. Don't expect too much via entertainment but nice to just relax in.

“Great walking place full of history and a lot of party opportunities”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2013

You can go through narrow streets or wide squares where is history combined with modern life. Surely try local cuisine and local home cooking experience - you will never regret.
