Bratislava makes a wonderful day trip from Vienna, but beating the language barrier to book travel independently is a challenge. On this tour, reach Bratislava in comfort by air-conditioned coach—with pickup and drop-off at your Vienna hotel included. Hear the hidden secrets of top attractions including Grassalkovich Palace and St. Michael’s Tower during a walking tour with your guide, and find out what makes this ancient Slovakian city special.

Palffy Palace together with Mirbach Palace forms the Bratislava City Gallery and I recommend you buy a 6 euro ticket with which you can visit both. The building is beautiful on the outside, but the interior is fabulous. Mostly I liked the "passage" which represents some kind of a symbolic "short cut across the world" in which we exist. It consists of nearly 15,000 books which together with mirrors create an illusion of endless space and infinity of human knowledge.

I used the Bratislava Card to enter the Gallery. While I was walking around looking at these beautiful photos, one of the members of staff(who didn't speak english) pointed at this man and smiled. It turned out it was the artist himself. I landed lucky I think and I was so pleased that the member of staff informed me. Overall it's a nice gallery. The staff are nice and happy and the exhibitions are laid out well.

After reading the other reviews I was considering not going to this place but glad I did. €4 entry but I was asked if I wanted to pay an extra €1 for another exhibit (not sure exactly which floor this was but they did check my ticket on the second floor and said I’d paid to see everything so worth it) As a lover of different types of art this place fits nicely. The contemporary art in the basement made me smile at times although the lighting could have been better. There was some thought provoking art there. The first floor had a range of works dating back to the 1400s- comments from others about the staff turning lights on and off as you enter and exit...I suspect this is actually to preserve the paintings as over time the light will obviously damage them and they aren’t protected by cases etc. This is also why the windows are closed off. The more ‘erotic’ work with the music didn’t really do much for me but each to their own. Nevertheless, there is plenty more on the other floors. A good variety of work for different tastes. Staff friendly and polite. The building itself is quite beautiful too with exposed stonework etc.

You start off with some Gothic religious art which frankly underwhelmed me as I've been to some of the best museums in Italy and Vienna in this travel period. Then you move to Matej Karen's The Passage which makes for a great photo (better if you have someone to take a photo for you!) and to the Bordello room - a few reviewers seemed uncomfortable but honestly it was not that awkward, even Serge Gainsbourg's Je'taime playing in the room seemed fitting. You probably wouldn't take your kids or parents in there though. The 2nd floor had some interesting modern art of what seems like regional artists, a handful of pieces really stood out and made you reflect on the state of the world today. The 3rd floor exhibit was a bit meh. There are a few paper handouts the ushers will give you to explain the various rooms but not the individual art. I was in there 20 min. Not having to pay for it because of the Bratislava card made it worthwhile for a quick peek.
