Stara radnica, Bratislava

One of the city's oldest buildings and long a nexus of local administration, Stara radnica 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. Start your trip to Bratislava by creating a personalized itinerary on Inspirock.

  • Out on the main square, it is impossible not to pay attention to the building of the Town Hall. Beautiful, very old building. In the Hall there is a Museum and lookout-we did not attend.

  • Super good exhibition of Bratislava. Is highly recommended. Good translation in English. We spent two hours.

  • The old city hall is one of the oldest buildings in Bratislava. The City Hall is built around 1370 and is located on one of the most beautiful squares of the city, namely the Hlavne Namesti, a major tourist attraction. The Town Hall also contains a museum, admission to the museum costs €5. Definitely worth a visit.

  • It's a nice viewing point and to just climb the tower the entrance is not much. I forgotten the exact cost. It gives an especially good view to the main square. In the other directions you will be just a bit higher than the other roofs. But that's exactly enough.
  • Visit the historical centre and the workman climbing out of a manhole (unique sculpture).
  • The oldest city hall in the country and one of the oldest stone buildings still standing in Bratislava. Housing the oldest museum of the city and owning a tower that offers a charming view on the city center to its visitors. A definitely must-see place you should not miss when in Bratislava.
  • We enjoyed our visit to the museum! There is a really interesting torture exhibition and a beautiful view from the top of the tower.
  • We bought a combined ticket for the Town Hall (City Museum) and Viticulture / Historical Interiors museum next door. Although this is only EUR 2 more expensive the former was worth it whilst the latter wasn't. Inside you get a nice view of the castle, UFO and churches from the tower and there's a few interesting exhibits along the way.
