Old Town Hall, Bratislava

4.3
#6 of 23 in Historic Sites in Bratislava
Historic Site Tourist Spot
One of the city's oldest buildings and long a nexus of local administration, Old Town Hall today serves as an integral section of the historical city center. While the hall itself grew from an amalgamation of buildings during the 15th century, its clock tower has stood since the late 1300s. Access the complex from the capital's main square and admire its mix of colors and architectural styles ranging from Gothic to Baroque to Neo-Renaissance. You can enter the building, the site of the city museum, and explore the chapel, which features a host of intricately painted walls. Be sure to make your way up the clock tower in order to enjoy a sweeping view over the surrounding rooftops. Using our international travel planner, Bratislava attractions like Old Town Hall can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

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.
