Neighborhood Historic Walking Area
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.

Where to stay in Bratislava

Save money on a trip to the pricey town of Bratislava by booking a private room or by staying in one of the many hostels. While there are hotels here, frequent business travelers have driven prices up. Find accommodation in Stary Mesto--the city's Old Town--and experience the medieval charm of the area, such as winding streets, old churches, and a hill-top castle. Consider staying on the Danube for riverside views. Be sure to check the reviews of your lodging ahead of time; the quality of accommodations can vary.

  • Lots of great little streets to explore with hidden cafes and restaurants.Found a couple or great little bars including "f☆☆king great coffee" first cafe. Great mojitos.  more »
  • Quaint and pretty. Lot of free music and shows. Compact so easy to walk round. Police presence in evening. Be careful where you eat and drink. One place we went in was 3.50 euros for 0.3 litre of beer...  more »
  • I have fond memories of this place. I love walking here and exploring the town on foot. Slowly it has become more of a tourist destination but it still has a good feel to it and reminds me of old time...  more »
