  • Erring after Bratislava streets in the end, we came across this architectural attractions. A real hit, however, appear to be standing in front of the bicycles, with whom, what is not strange-everyone wants to have a picture. highly recommend as well;) place and square on which the Palace is situated is very pleasant.

  • The Primatial Palace is elegant, Grand and harmonious, the Interior is rather bland. Revenue just to see the beautiful Fountain of Saint George and the Dragon.
