Owner description: Historic neighborhood filled with charming narrow lanes, burgher's houses and nobles' palaces in addition to many of the city's important buildings such as the former Palace of the Hungarian Estates, the late-Gothic building of the Academia Istropolitana and the Leopold de Pauli Palace where Franz Liszt performed as a child.

We were told by our guide that Bratislava’s economy does not significantly benefit from the river ships’ docking; as they do not stay overnight so hotels and dinner restaurants receive no business from the brief encounters with the ships’ tourists. Bratislava’s Main Square contains the Roland Fountain, built in 1572 and serving as the town’s main water supply at the time. Other attractions in the Old Town area include some funny brass sculptures - including "Rubberneck" (a little pervert reportedly peering up women's skirts from his manhole) and "Napoleon's Soldier" leaning over a park bench. There is also a metal plaque marking the first witch burning in 1602. A nice easygoing tour.

the historic center of the town is not big, but verry nice and romantic. If you do not plan to visit any musea, 3 hours schould do to see everything. Don't miss out on the blue church, if you ask for it everyone can show you the way

You can spend a few hours knocking around here and do some shopping and get a good meal or a beer. This area, like all of the city, is actually in transition. The main street can be very busy, yet a block towards the UFO bridge highway, there are abandoned buildings. But signs of growth and new recovery are everywhere continuing from the country's emergence from it's former economic system. Very enjoyable for a brief visit.

Bratislava old town is wonderful to walk around, eat in and stay in. Our two night stay gave us a great flavour of the place with a walk to the castle, a cycle into the countryside across the Austrian border and other explorations.
Arrived by hydrofoil from Vienna which was great but trying to leave by train was a bit if a disaster and the train station needs modernising.
