    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.
