Impressive castle
Aug 2021 • Solo
I visited the castle at the recommendation of our tour guide. It is beautiful, houses some famous English tapestries which were discovered hidden within the walls. Interesting chimneys and furniture. When I was there, the castle also hosted a beautiful art exposition of items made of wire

Wire Exhibition
Jul 2021 • Couples
Beautiful building with great wire exhibition during summer! There is also mirror hall inside! Wire artists showed me more than 100 pcs made of metal! Unique slovaque phenomenon.

Do NOT go inside
Aug 2020 • Family
Very pretty palace from the outside only. Don’t bother to go inside. Super rude staff who watches you like a hawk and follow you everywhere. Very unpleasant experience. And the mirror hall is just a very simple room with few simple mirrors on the side, nothing special at all. Seriously the worst experience during our stay in Bratislava.

The Pink and Gold Building is the Show
Aug 2019
This is a case where after viewing the outside of the building and the private square, the interior is unremarkable. The story it tells is interesting.

Great Primates' Palace
Jul 2019
Great Primates' Palace is certainly one of the major attractions of Bratislava, it has a very beautiful architecture and can be seen outside the wonderful Fountain of San Giorgio and the Dragon.
It is worthy to stop if you are in the area.

Very beautiful palace
Mar 2020
Very beautiful palace in the old town. It has a very nice hall which is used for different event such conferences. But this hall is even more beautiful for classical music concerts.

Friendly and Simple Ambient
Mar 2020
It is a very tiny palace in compare with other palaces in Europe, but the thing which makes your experience completely different is that there is no ropes or lines to divide the objects or make a distance between you and the peaces of furniture in the palace. You can easily walk through the objects, but have to stay on the red carpet.
Staff look not really kind but I found they are old ladies who cannot speak English well, but if you try to chat with them in German then you find them friendly.

Rude staff that ruined the experience
Mar 2020 • Friends
Were a group of 4 ladies in our 30s. We'd just been on a walking tour around Slovakia, and our tour guide had highly recommended visiting this place. We were keen to visit, and went in straight after our tour - what a mistake.

The receptionist was rude, on arrival she pointed to the coatstand and barked coats at us. We had just got in from the cold weather outside and we were too cold to take them off - when we told her this she just pulled a face at us and pointed to go upstairs.

When we got upstairs (after wandering around with no clear direction on where to go) there were 2 members of staff "policing" the area. 1 lady scowled at us on arrival and pointed into one room saying it was the hall of mirrors - the room was empty (unless we missed something), we thought we had to go through another door, when we tried to gently turn the handle she shrieked as us and shouted closed. We jumped and apologised.

After that, the same lady angrily followed us around like some kind of angry bouncer - making us feel nervous as she was right behind us with every room that we walked into.

We were not made to feel welcome at all, and her attitude towards us was completely out of order. We rushed through as quickly as possible to get out of the Palace, as being angrily stalked by her was unpleasant and made us feel incredibly uncomfortable.

Overall, these staff completely ruined the experience for us and we left feeling like we had been bullied out of the place. I suggest you review their customer service skills, which are apparently non existent. I would not recommend this experience to anyone.

Very beautiful building. It won't take much of your time or your money ( for the ticket ). Well preserved. Worthy to see.

Historical significance
Oct 2019
Previously the residence of the area’s primary bishops (as evidenced by the large black hat sculpture on the roof), this baroque building is now the mayor’s office. For a small fee one can view the original chapel, a small gallery, and a mirror hall. Perhaps the real significance of the site, however, is that it was used for the signing of the Treaty of Pressburg after Napoleon’s victory at Austerlitz. The plaque on the entry wall mentions Talleyrand who signed the peace in behalf of Napoleon. While I wouldn’t say this is a “must see”, if you have the time, the palace provides a good sense of the history of the area.
