Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Really interesting building and collection. Firstly the building itself is an attractive powder-pink. It is topped by 150kg cast iron cardinal's hat. The rooms whilst not extensive are attractive. Historical it is important for the signing of the 'Peace of Pressburg' in 1805 after the Austrian defeat to Napoleon at Austerlitz. For history buffs it is interesting to think of Talleyrand working in these rooms to create the treaty.
Regarding the contents, the most notable are six tapestries made in 1628 to 1630 in Mortlake near London.
My only criticism would be that the pictures and furniture should have explanation plaques in English- sorry sounds nationalistic but it seems most tourists here understand English.

Like all religious buildings, this one is quite grand.
The interiors are very richly decorated and there are also a lot of interesting displays.

I thought there would be more to see of the Primates palace when doing the research for the trip. Its a lovely building with a nice little court in the middle of it with a statue but not much else to see. Have a walk through when your there but don't plan to spend too much time there.

Grand classic style, built in the 1700s. Located off the main square in Bratislava. Look for the Fountain of St. George and the Dragon inside the courtyard of the palace.

This old building was once the home of the bishop of the area. The country was very Catholic. It’s a really nice old building and a main thing to see when visiting. It fits in perfectly in an old town.

A nice building but didn't blow the mind in any way... But it is set in a lovely little square with a lot else around it to make it a worthy stop on your explorations.

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

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.

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.

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.
