Bratislava Old Town, Bratislava

4.4
The heart of the city's cultural, political, and social life, the narrow streets and squares of Bratislava Old Town feature many historical landmarks, such as a medieval castle and the city's largest cathedral. Walk the promenade along the riverbank and see palaces housing foreign embassies as well as national institutions, including the government building. Nicknamed a "large village" by the locals due to its familiar atmosphere, this area is home to many shops, pubs, bars, and restaurants where you can taste traditional mulled wine or honey liquor. Look out for bizarre bronze statues, such as a man peeping from a manhole. St. Michael's gate and tower offer a nice view from a balcony. Planning Bratislava trip won't be overwheling when you use's Insprock itinerary maker.

  • Bratislava taxi drivers rip you off. Suggestion, only use Uber. I have been walking to and back from Old town, 1.6 km. Tired tonight so took a taxi -15 Euro. What a rip off  more »
  • The historical centre is quite small and not that interesting as it seems from the pictures. Nice view from castle.  more »
  • A great city for a short break. Accommodation choice is excellent as is the choice of resturaunts. Also take in the free city walking tour. Well worth considering and good value too  more »
