Good views from the tower

4 euros to get in, including the tower which gives good views. Staff don't speak English but were friendly enough.

A focal point of any tour of the Old Town. Its now mostly a museum and the building itself is beautiful and well worth a visit. Of note the coffee shop has good service and good coffee and snacks. Better yet it only hires staff with disabilities.

The museum was way bigger than expected, and it showed the life in Bratislava in a detailed manner and from a lot of different angle. Its collection is outstanding, you can see medieval documents (facsimile copies) and various items of the city rich artisan history. From the tower you have a unique view on the old town and the castle,... More

You can pay €2.50 and just go up the Tower - I'm glad I did (I do like a high view!) and got some good pictures of the square below and castle. I went around midday and the lighting was good for both. This is a better view than St Michaels Gate Tower so if you do only one of... More

This place is worth a stop for photos on your old city walk about. It is near the central square and has a pleasant historic courtyard. We did not go into the museum, so cannot comment on that.

The Old Town Hall is an awesome old building where you certainly can spend an hour looking at all the details. Very beautiful building.

This building is a bit boring compared to the sourrundings. You will find it just walking around downtown.

Located near Hlavne Namestie (the main square) in Old Town, this building now houses the city museum Not much to look at. Nice small courtyard.

To me it was not the greatest attraction although you may take a look and get a few nice pics. A good example of old town.

The old town hall, now Bratislava's city Museum, is located on one end of Hlavne namestie, the main square, in the center of the old town. 3 townhouses and a palace were combined to form the city hall. That's why its architecture varies. The city hall can be viewed from the main square and from the courtyard at the back.... More
