    Beautiful and worth a visit
    We had an interesting walking tour of Hstoric Old Town. The Old Town Hall is a complex of buildings from the 14 th century in the Old Town of Bratislava, the capital of Slovakia. It is the oldest city hall in the country and it is one of the oldest stone buildings still standing in Bratislava. The outlook from the top of the Old Town Hall tower, built approximately in 1370, offers a round view of Bratislava Old Town and its environs. It is easily recognizable by its colorful tiled roof. Beautiful Gothic architecture for an amazing photo op. We enjoyed this incredible easy walking tour.

    Lots to do and good value
    10 euros is really good value. You get access to the entire Town Hall and also the museum next door in the Primatial Palace. Combined you get a broad sweep of Slovakian history from the Middle Ages to the Soviet era. The highlight is the bell tower and the office half-way up which is beautifully preserved and then the view from the top. English translations are pretty poor... so you're mainly looking at stuff.

The old town hall is an interesting place to visit.
A climb up to the top of the tower is a must do.
When you get there, there are beautiful views over the old city.

Massive museum that provides a detailed account of the building and city's history. You can also climb the tower to get good views of the Old Town and surrounding area.

Its a nice building with a lovely green tiled and patterned roof and with a clock / bell tower you can climb for 3 euro. There is a museum as well.
We didn't climb the tower as the views from the castle are just as good and free.
I didn't find this a must do while I was in Prague.

If you climb the clock tower, you can learn a bit about the history of Bratislava with some exhibitions inside. The view at the top speaks itself. It is a must visit attraction on a sunny day.

There is also a museum attached to the clock tower which we didn’t pay for but it looked interesting. I will probably try it out if I return to Bratislava.

Old Town was fantastic and fun. So many good restaurants and beautiful buildings. The site of the Christmas Market and Christmas Tree. We thoroughly enjoyed Old Town and wish we had a few more days to repeat some of our favorite places to eat and drink.

Great views of the square and city from the top of the Old City Hall Tower. 3 euros to climb the tower (1.5 for seniors). Note the cannon ball embedded in the side of the hall, a remnant of Napoleon’s failed siege of Bratislava.

This old building is quite nice. It’s a museum inside and you can walk to the top of the clock tower and look over the whole town. It takes a little time unless you are in great shape and it was hot. But well worth the hike up the stairs. A nice spot.
