Bratislava Old Town, Bratislava

(4.4/5 based on 5,500+ reviews on the web)
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. Make Bratislava Old Town a centerpiece of your Bratislava vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Bratislava travel itinerary planner.
