  • Bratislava's visit not to be missed in the Palace. Historical events. Unfortunately, photography is not allowed! Highly pay attention!

  • We have been in this building by chance and I have to say we were excited. Isn't it great to see salt but with few of the beautiful furnishings, of fantastic colors and an interesting series of tapestries. The entrance fee of 3 euro
