There is a train from the Old Town to bring you to the top of this high hill (10 euro), and if you chose this option I suggest walking down because it is such a beautiful walk and so much to see. We walked around by road from Old Town to the top because I cannot do stairs and it... More

Bratislava Castle was quite nice, but nothing super spectacular. That being said, the entry fee is very reasonable, particularly for students. I think it was definitely worth the fee, as there's quite a lot of info inside. Unfortunately quite a lot of it was just in Slovakian and therefore we could not understand it. I do think the best thing... More

Nice grounds to spend time looking out over the city. We didn't go inside. Very close to the old town.

If you go to Bratislava I would recommend visiting the Bratislava castle. Nice building and nice views from top. I would take the city tour to go up to the castle.

A great example of how you can obtain high-quality restorations for not very much money. Hrad is beautifully situated on the hill above the town and Danube, and looks very good. Inside - a few sites to review the city and museums. Undoubtedly deserves a visit.

Most of the castle has been rebuilt so not that exciting. A nice view from the top of the hill but thats about it. Wouldn't bother with this if i had the choice again

The castle is massive rectangular building with four corner towers stands with 4 gates: Sigismund (southeast), Nicholas (northeast) Leopold (northWeast) and Vienna - that offers you the best views over the Danube! 40 years ago it was very interesting to see Wien’s lights in the nights … now I think it is so marvellous to see the Danube in the...
