  • Nice squares that is along the Palace. The fountain of St. George to see. However, the Museum is wonderful. Concerns the history of Slovakia and really educates both for the history and for aspects of their everyday life. Wall causing the piece of torture. To visit for sure!

  • Located in the historic centre of the Slovak capital, it is housed in a neoclassical building constructed in the second half of 1700. Inside, its most famous (the Hall of mirrors) peace of Pressburg was signed, ending the war of the third coalition. Currently, the building is the seat of the municipality of Bratislava. Beautiful. Will definitely be returning. TO VISIT!

  • The curia of primacy of Bratislava is iospitata in this central and prestigious building, which in the days when I visited proposed, on the ground floor an interesting digital table on urban transport citizens. In the courtyard, very elegant, a fountain surmounted by St. George Slaying a dragon with three heads

  • This place wants to be a flagship for local government and is frequently used for diplomatic meetings. It has also a museum section with the wall tapestries well-known story. Impasse it was well-known for public Wedding Place. All the patios are most of the day open for public free of charge and I suggest tourist to take a walk inside and have a look.
  • Nice place to visit! Dont expect anything magnificent like palaces in Vienna. This one is quite small, but still has many beautiful pieces of art and pretty interiors.
  • Sumer residence of Archbishop of Estragon. One of the most beautyful places in Bratislava.
  • Well, very nice place for tourist visiting Bratislava. It is amazing, what can you see here. I really recommend.
  • Great historical building. Great place vor various social events.
