“Worth a visit - nothing stands out much”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 6, 2013

Worth an afternoon walk, a few pics and possibly enjoy a latte among the many cafes/restaurants. Good vibe, good value for money, crowd rather friendly and you do bump into a few tourists.

Nice place to walk and look. All the statues they have put out are entertaining and funny. You can shop and eat.

“Beautiful Old Town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 4, 2013

We picked the perfect time to visit Bratislava's Old Town, off-season. We, along with the locals and a half full of visitors, seemed to have the whole town to ourselves. We were able to wander the streets and taken in the beautiful architecture and atmosphere of the little town.

Although it's quite compact and you could rush and see everything in a matter of an hour or two, we took our time and spread our visit over two days. We must have went down every street and looped back again - we even enjoyed a ride on the Old Town train (which is a must for a laugh as well as getting a bit more background about the Old Town).

Make sure you take a stroll around the plaza at dusk when the fountain lights turn on, truly a pretty little square.

“Cute city center ...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 3, 2013

This was my third time in Bratislava, just stopped for a city center view.
Cute as always, not that expensive (ice cream, for example 0,70 EUR).
Nice small narrow streets, not that crowded, recently very good polished (compared to roads, which could be otherwise quite poor) and very clean.
Parking however in the city center : avoid it !
7 EUR for a few minutes more than 1 hour !
But hey, you are not in Bratislava every day, so I say it is worth parking a bit further and then walk to the old town.

“Meandering streets”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 1, 2013

We walked for hours around the streets, so much to see and do and plenty of places to stop for a drink, ice cream or something to eat. Fascinating.
